Foster parent not giving up adopted cats.

Foster parent not giving up adopted cats.
Q:My fiance and I adopted 2 kittens from a rescue and at the moment they are being taken care of by a foster parent. Our arrangement was for us to bring home the kittens once we move in to our newly bought townhome. We paid the deposit and signed a contract regarding the adoption and now the foster parent completely stopped communicating with me, and the rescue team. What can we do at this point?

A:Individuals who believe that their animals are being wrongfully withheld can sue to try to get the animals returned. The rights and responsibilities of adopters, rescues, and foster care “parents” are often spelled out in adoption and foster care agreements. These cases can get more complicated if the adoption process was not completed or there is a discrepancy between the adoption and foster care agreements (for example, the foster care agreement gave the foster care “parent” first rights to adopt).
