RAYMORE, Mo. - This little ball of energy was meant to be a playmate for Amanda Waugh's other pup, Deckard.

Waugh fell in love with Jayden online.  She says she contacted the manager of Forever Friends and adopted Jayden for $250 before she was old enough to be spayed.

"The reason why I had adopted her from there was because they had told me that the spaying and neutering was part of my adoption fees," Waugh said.

But that changed Wednesday, when more than 70 animals were taken from Forever Friends, where the care of the animals sold there is under investigation.

Forever Friends is currently not in business, and that means the veterinarian clinic that worked with Forever Friends to treat animals, Angels Vet Express, is no longer honoring the deal, and Amanda will have to pay out of pocket to have Jayden spayed.

She says Forever Friends should pay, since she already paid them.

"Best case scenario would be if they honored the contract we signed and honor what they said they were going to do and spay the animal under their costs," Waugh said.

A representative from Angels Vet Express says in talking to the manager of Forever Friends, she was told the business is broke, but plans to reimburse customers if the business re-opens.

Representatives from Angels Vet Express say they've never had an issue with Forever Friends, and never had an indication that the business or animals were in any kind of trouble.
