brother abandoned cats

Lynchburg, VA

#1 Sep 23, 2012
My brother was evicted and left his cats in the place he was evicted from. He was illegally going back to the condo he was evicted from and checking on the cats. The owner called animal control and they picked them up. My brother lied to the shelter as well as me and said he was out of town and didn't know they were picked up. He asked me to pick them up from the shelter and he would pay me back for the fees incurred. He for some reason hasn't paid me the 150 it cost to get them out of the shelter. So I'm refusing to give him the kitties till he pays me my money. I have 3 cats of my own so his cats are well taken care of. I did rescue for 11 years so I've seen many a animal abandoned. What I want to know is how long does he have to pay me before I can adopt his cats to a good home. He just got out of jail 3 months ago and his wife was taking care of them. He now has a bench warrant on him and I'm sure he will be back in jail within time. I will give him his cats back if he pays me, but I don't think he will. So legally I'm wondering how much time will have to pass before he loses his rights to the cats and I can then adopt them out?

Yeah, if I needed legal advice I would run to Topix too.
