I receive an email on Easter Sunday and despite holiday went out to look for dog.  

I came very close to capturing dog and called New Bedford Animal Control to get them involved int his search. 

DAY 2 

After 8 hours with rain we decided to come back in morning. ACO took his trap and brought back to office which means I had to buy a trap and some food to lure dog in morning since no communication with ACO on what they were doing. 

DAY 3 

We had volunteers out there at 5 am who placed 2 traps

1. Trap I paid for

2. Trap provided by the Westport ACO

Jackie was captured around 930 am . I was 5 minutes away. Volunteers begged Animal Control for me to get the closure I deserved and they drove off minutes before I arrived.  

Per City Law . Dog is required to go to Forever Paws for a 10 day stray hold period to allow owner ample enough time to claim animal.

10 Day Stray Hold Ends April 14th . Task Force Team DENIED opportunity to again see dog. Forever Paws DENIES having animal!!!!

Per city Contract , once an animal enters their system by law they have to have the animal on a 10 day stray hold and photo posted on the city website or Forever Paws Facebook Page

Instead of Jackie appearing on their facebook page as looking for owners. They post her on PetFinder Up For adoption

 Are they considering this dog boarded for 10 days at a private residence as OK?

IN SUMMARY 

Dog was never at Forever Paws for almost 3 weeks

Forever Paws told everyone for 3 weeks they dont have dog 

City of New Bedford paid Forever Paws to board an animal who since April 3rd stayed at Linda Morad's house and like anonymous FP volunteer tells us dog never left that house besides a 10 minute photo shoot for PetFinder to make it look like the dog was apart of their shelter . Owner was NEVER Looked for!!!
