Stop Posting Of Pets In The "Free Section" Of Craig's List

Stop the selling of life like sofas on Craigslist. People have come to think of animals as convenience items. Animals suffer so, the scenario these days ranges from passed from home to home at best, bought one day and sold for more the next by flippers, trolled by the devious for sexual fetish crush videos, as bait dogs for dog fighting, who are rendered helpless by filing down or pulling their teeth and duct taping their mouths shut to be unable to defend themselves, from people trolling to sell animals to labs for cruel testing, and to those who just enjoy animal torture and are on constant alert for easy prey. People are devious, convincing and fool people into giving them animals at low Rehoming fee or free animals. And then there are those who breed animals for money in backyard breeding, or puppy mills, who sell animals for money and care nothing for the suffering. You've rescued until you are exhausted, broke, and most of all heartsick. Long after the ads are gone from Craigslist, the suffering goes on. Animal sales and services are prohibited on Craigslist, and people need to be aware of how bad the situation is for disposability of animals, and extreme cruelty, more and more, that animals face by being dumped on Craigslist. It is the electronic garbage site for animals, and people are always thinking they will have happy forever homes, when at best, people are continually reinforced that if they don't want an animal, just list on Craigslist and move on. You can fight back! You can flag as prohibited animal sales on Craigslist, it is! And also flag stud services that perpetuate the cycle of suffering. You can STOP BEING S O R R Y ABOUT PUPPY MILLS and BACKYARD BREEDERS and F I G H T them by FLAGGING THE SALES ADS ON CRAIGSLIST, VERY OBVIOUS, THOUGH THEY TRY TO DISGUISE, BECAUSE EVERY TIME THEY POST, AN AUTO POPULATED TEXT MESSAGE POPS UP TELLING THEM ANIMAL SALES AND SERVICES ARE PROHIBITED, P R O H I B I T E D, YET STILL POST, IGNORING THE SUFFERING OF ANIMALS. The shelters where hundreds die, and the overflowing no kill rescues is where one can legitimately get an animal, through careful screening for homes. You can frantically continue to try to place every animal at high kill shelters, to be exhausted for a lifetime of rescues, or can nip things in the bud, stop the cycle through FLAGGING AS PROHIBITED, that which is prohibited on Facebook. Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people. IGHT FOR THEM, this holiday season, and very day. STOP THE SUFFERING THROUGH THE PUSH OF A BUTTON, DON' T STAND BY HELPLESSLY, since most people are not veterinarians and cannot spay or neuter an animal to stop the cycle of unwanteds, we are still powerful in saying "NO MORE!", we are not going stand by while the innocents and voiceless suffer so.mmPatrol your state for ads in every region.m Put yourself on auto alert for puppy, puppies on a. Craigslist alerts and fight the suffering by flagging!!!

Stop Posting Of Pets In The "Free Section" Of Craig's List

I once found a purebred Cairn Terrier. We posted this lost puppy on fliers, Facebook, and in the lost section of Craigslist. We checked all the local vets, groomers etc. No One in our small town came forward to claim this little boy. I eventually placed a "Free Puppy to good home" ad. I was UNAWARE at the time what happens to these babies. A couple drove about 100 miles or so to come get him. I had emailed & spoken to her a few times and she said she has lost her Cairn, and seemed to know a lot about this breed. I finally decided ok, I will surrender him. I NEVER HEARD FROM THEM AGAIN
