CHICAGO (WGN) – A Chicago woman who lost her dog nearly two years ago sued a local animal shelter and Chicago’s Animal Care and Control, claiming the organization adopted the dog without ever attempting to track it down.
Karly Moran-West got Zeus, a golden retriever, when he was a puppy. The two were best friends for six years, but in January 2020 Moran-West’s father was watching Zeus when she was out of town and the dog escaped.
“He finally came out of the back yard and someone picked him up and took him to Chicago Care and Animal Control,” said Moran-West.
Moran-West said she didn’t know her dog was lost for a few weeks, but when she found out she jumped into action.

“I immediately made posters, I hung them all over the neighborhood, I consistently went there, and I called his name almost every day,” said Moran-West. “Finally someone sent me a picture of Zeus with his family and I thought, ‘That is Zeus right there.'”
Moran-West said Zeus wasn’t chipped, but he was wearing a collar with his name and phone number embroidered on it.
“We know this because it is specifically noted in the CACC records that Zeus wore a red collar with the name Zeus,” said her lawyer, Jonathan Rosen.
According to a copy of the CACC’s admission form, the dog wore a red collar called “Zeus,” which Moran-West believes is the same collar that her number was on.
Zeus was then transferred to the Fetching Tails Foundation where he was reportedly adopted.

The organization said it followed proper protocol but is unable to comment on any pending litigation.
“He was my child, and if your child were adopted by someone else, you would probably do the same,” said Moran-West. “So I think you should have a heart and give my dog back to me. ”
Her lawyer said they don’t know who has the dog but are working to find out who the family is.
