Too bad it isn't some sort of yard/fence situation where you could offer labor, materials, and good faith to fix the situation. Furniture and mattresses are harder to replace.

I expect to pay for damages.
I once worked with an org who got me to temporarily house a dog under a bunch of false pretenses (a dog I had only agreed to pick up and transport to said org). The dog did over $2,000 in damage to our adobe outbuilding, and destroyed the kennel fence all in less than 24 hours. The org refused to come get the dog, and wouldn't accept it when I took it there. And I NEVER worked with that org again. I obviously never got reimbursed, and didn't expect to, but it would have been much better all around if the rescue had 1) taken the dog in the first place or 2) taken the dog after it had done the damage.
