Can I sell a kitten with a broken leg for $2,000?
I found a kitten in the street, it looked hurt so i took it to the vet, they patched him up and put his paw in a cast. But they charged me $2,000 for a stinking animal that isn't mine, I tried to leave the kitten with them but they threatened to call the police and have me charged with animal abuse and abandonment.
So now i have a broken kitten I want to get rid of asap, I'm not going to waste anymore money buying it food, bowls, a bed etc etc..., but I need to know if i can sell it?

You obviously care enough to go to the vets so go to an animal expenditure

Here's the best answer I can give.
Immediately drop the animal off at a animal shelter your nearby shelters are listed in the phone book and on web.
If they want money show them the vet bill and explain you found the kitten.
If they won't accept that pay them what they ask.
Keep all receipts and bills.
Next go to you local police precinct and explain what happened. Show them the evidence. If they feel nothing can be done. Take it to sheriff. If same take it to state patrol.
Also show it to your mayor and city council and state Representative.
See if any can recommend an attorney.
You ll wanna sue for recovery because the vet should have taken the kitten and the shelter should have paid the bill.
You can leave your name as possible owner but your only one of many applicants.
You only pay if you want the animal.

you can not sell it . because no one wants to buy a broken leg kitten.

$2000? Sorry, Im not buying it.
Cost of xrays and cast, a few hundred maybe.
If surgery was needed to set the bone, maybe another few hundred at most.
I might be convinced that it cost a grand if this was xrays and surgery done at an ER vet.
No one is gonna pay 2 grand for a common stray kitten. One can get a papered purebred cat for less than that.

No. If it was not yours then you should of called a shelter to explain the situation and they would of taken over medical costs. It couldn't of been abandonment as the animal was not yours, and you did the right thing seeking help. However, it is way too late now. No cat gets sold for ridiculous prices like that - especially if it's a common breed like him that they can find anywhere else. I suggest giving him to a shelter or selling him for a n absolute maximum of $200.

I used to say that we didn’t choose Bubbles. She chose us.
The kitten I had seen online and called about was a snow-white beauty that was snapped up immediately by someone else. “I have others at my house,” the woman at the rescue foundation said. “Do you want to come see them?”
So we took the train deep into Queens and arrived at a barnyard disguised as a home. Chickens squawked on the porch, dogs ran through the living room and cats lounged in every corner.

You should have let them call the police. There are laws to protect people in your exact situation.
