More details to this question:
The notice states my females was stuck under the fence. I have pics showing that could not be true. Said neglect and took my dogs because of abrasions on their necks where they were chained recently and were pulling. They were cared for while I was away. They have violated code 5-6. They did not have permission or a warrant to come onto my property.

Animal Law
Whether you own cats, dogs and other pets; breed animals for show and sale; raise livestock, or hunt wild animals, a host of federal, state and local laws govern animals and their welfare. Animal laws also intersect with our day-to-day lives: Can a landlord refuse to rent to you if you own a pet? Can service animals accompany their owners into places where pets aren't traditionally welcome? What happens to the beloved family pet when a couple gets divorced? Whether you're an animal advocate, have been accused of animal cruelty, have a pet that's died as a result of veterinary malpractice or are concerned about the welfare of animals at a local zoo or circus, you need the help of an experienced animal law attorney.
