Doggy Doctor Inc. is happy to take Rufus for a week — but only if you promise not to pop in to see what kind of care he’s getting.

In Florida, family members are free to visit. But there are efforts to keep regulators and watchdogs at bay — even as troubling reports of neglect and abuse continue to mount.
