I've seen on here recently posts about a contract that you sign when you get a rescue animal, stipulating, for example, that a cat has to remain indoor, or that you can't rehome or pts without permission from the rescue. I've also seen this about animals bought from breeders. Is there any legal basis to these contracts?

This is exactly the point - the contracts make it clear that you are NOT the animal's owner, the rescue remains the legal owner of the animal (which are currently counted as property under UK law). So if you decide you no longer want to/can keep the animal, you need to return their property to them.

How can someone take action against you for doing with your property what you wish as long as it's within the law? Those contracts sound unfair, I doubt they can be enforced.
