From ANIMAL PEOPLE, October 2000:
LEGAL FORMS & AGREEMENTS: Special Edition for Cat & Dog Shelters and Rescue Groups
by M. Ellen Dixon, Esq.
(order c/o Dixon, 234 Canterbury Ct., Blue Bell, PA 19422; 610-239-0357; fax 610-277-3752; <email@example.com>), 2000. 295 pages, paperback; $26.95 including shipping.
In the just under 300 pages of Legal Forms &
Agreements: Special Edition for Cat & Dog Shelters
and Rescue Groups, attorney M. Ellen Dixon hypothetically
describes at least 300 situations commonly
encountered by animal shelters and rescuers which may
end up in court if agreements are not legally secured.
Though most shelters and rescuers long since
learned to use written animal surrender and adoption
contracts, other transactions are often based on little
more than undocumented conversation.
