Please help Tucker come home!

I'm going to keep this post at the top until this situation is resolved. Scroll down for my new posts.

Our friend Waitress was asked by one of her readers to help with her situation. It seems her border collie "Tucker" jumped the fence and took a tour of the neighborhood on Friday, Oct. 13th. Fortunately (and unfortunately) one of her neighbors found Tucker and took him to the Humane Society of Berks County in Reading, PA. This is where the story takes a turn for the worse. Jo contacts the Humane Society on Monday, Oct. 16th, and asks if any border collies were turned in over the weekend. They reply no. On Thursday, Oct. 19th, Jo was talking with some neighbors about Tucker and they led her to the neighbor who in fact took Tucker to the same Humane Society that claimed they did not receive any male border collies. It gets worse. Apparently during that week, Tucker was adopted by another family. Once it comes to the Humane Society's attention that Tucker already has a family and they want him back, they contact the adopting family and ask if they would return Tucker to his rightful home. They decline. And then lawyers are called and now they're turning to the online community for help. I'm not sure what to do, but maybe someone else will.
