The Arlington man filed a lawsuit after he was denied access to records while looking for his missing Pomeranian mix.
An Arlington-area man has filed a lawsuit against Everett after he was denied access to dog records at a public animal shelter.
The (Everett) Herald reportsthat Jonathan Bander filed a lawsuit last month after he was denied access to records while looking for his missing Pomeranian mix, Hyde.
Bander went to the Everett Animal Shelter after Hyde disappeared in January. The shelter has a binder of stray animals for people seeking missing pets to peruse. A shelter employee told Bander he could not see a dog he thought might be Hyde.
When he returned to the shelter days later, that dog’s kennel card had been removed. He filed a records request, which was denied.
