One young mother and her 4-year-old are despondent after losing their puppy. The real kicker? They know exactly who has the dog, who they named Rafiki, and there's no way they can get him back. The puppy in question escaped from the house, and while his owner looked for him frantically, he was put into a shelter and then taken in by another adoption agency who had already placed him (for a modest fee, of course) before, they claim, the dog could be returned.
You'd think this would be a simple misunderstanding easy to rectify. You'd think wrong, I'm sorry to say. The animal rescue group in question is standing by their decision. They basically went ahead and implied in a letter they shared via Facebook that because the pet in question wasn't micro-chipped, his first owners have only themselves to blame. Whoa. That's way harsh, Tai.
