Here is Mr Shanmugam's full post:

Many animal lovers have been upset about the events surrounding puppy Tammy. Ada, who was Tammy's rehomer spoke with me. I asked for the document which was signed between Ada and Tammy's adopter. Ada told me that she made clear to Tammy's adopter in subsequent conversations that Ada was prepared to take back Tammy. Ada also showed me the SMS exchanges between the adopter and herself, which seems to bear out what Ada says.

I have given Ada my views on the contract, and have suggested to her that she should get a lawyer to pursue this matter. She asked me for help and I have suggested a lawyer to her who will help her pro bono. There could be other fees, expenses - Louis ( from Acres) who was in the conversation, has said that the money will be raised if necessary.
