Is this a crime scene? Is the tenant a missing person?
Sounds possible. Perhaps she did not intend to let the bird die.
Email me and I can give you a list of rescue organizations; if you know the breed, I also have a list of
breed rescue org. in old copy of ZNN, which I got at
library and at my vet.Maybe your’s has them too.
I would think that womeone in thises organizations would have some familiarty with the law, esp. local
There are some no-kill shelters (one near Chapel Hill) listed, with phone numbers, some with email, some with websites; otherwise, I have some links I think.
If there is not a shelter closer, I’ll transport to chapel hill (Mebane) for you. ( I think I am between you and Mebane) I’m thinking that these shelters would provide a temporary home, knowing the circumstances. They adopt out the animals (advertising in ZNN).
I’d check with the law; you could put her stuff in storage. If you stop paying, it would be auctioned off, and her personal stuff, like checkbooks, mail, etc. would go to a stranger, anyway, so you could find out if there is info in that re family.But at that point, the stuff is really abandoned, not necessarily by a third party, so I don’t really know your rights, either, but possibly a return address on an envelope that just happened to be in view might help.
The post office may not tell you a fwd address but might tell you IF there was a fwd address.
I’d collect the dog before contacting any law or city/county authorities, just to be safe.
Reminds me of a former thread where the owner was in a coma.
Let me know. Ann
