"Nobody said you could. You are arguing a claim that has never been made."

Doc, I'm not arguing what happens in your state, I'm sharing with you my experience down here.

Again, my experience with AC and stray animals is that an animal can be left under the control of someone who is not the owner only if they are directly related in some way to the owner, which is assuming that the owner is aware and OK with this. I could never leave a dog in the custody of someone not associated with the owner. If someone were to report a violation, i.e. stray animal, no tags etc., then there is a duty to enforce code which should result in an AC officer visit. The AC officer also has a duty to protect the animal's and public's welfare and a duty to respect private property. All of our animals that were declared abandoned went to the humane society shelter for adoption because there were specific things that needed to happen before the dog could go back out for adoption, i.e. determination that the animal was suitable for adoption with regards to health and temperate, and screening for potential owners. The owner would also have to sign some agreement requiring shots, registration and spay and neutering. We in turn would do the follow up to ensure that these things were completed if they they were not done at the shelter. In our state a rescue organization could never resolve issues and determinations of private property.
