Restitution

In NC, when an animal or animals are seized in a cruelty case, the owner can either surrender the animal(s) or pay for their care pending the outcome of the trial. The court determines if they get the animals back - it has nothing to do with the amount they pay (or don't pay)for their care. It is called a bonding law and is very helpful in situations like this. In Wilson County, a couple chose to pay for their dogs' care while it is being fought out in court, but they may lose their dogs regardless.
