It should be the sellers responsibility to do a background check. Seller should be fully responsible.

Unfortunately, some end-up to be used by vile individuals as bait for dog fights. NO ONE SHOULD ADVERTISE "FREE PET" ON CRAIGSLIST EVER! Pets are not for "sale" they're living beings who need love and protection.

This is so true. Graig's list needs to ban people posting these poor animals on their website.

My girlfriend and I adopted our cat Milo from a woman on Craigslist. She unfortunately just could not take care of him because of how allergic she was. Her loss was our gain. He's the coolest cat on the block! There are positive adoptions happening on the site, the site just needs to keep a better eye on the negative ones.

I've emailed Craigslist telling them all that is above in this petition, all you get is a digtial reply. They are irresponsible and I hope a law is passed to prevent them from allowing any animals to be advetised on Craigslist. They are just as despicable ad the perpetrators who do the evil deeds.

I never stopped being amazed at the level of naivety of these people that think randomly offering their pet as "free to good home" will actually have a person say to them, "i want your dog but, it's not going into a good home, instead I'm going to perform sexual acts on your dog." So what then? Will the owner say well then you have to pay monies if those are your intentions. IDIOTS

Animal should NOT be listed at all on Craigs list. They are not something to be bought or sold that way. We need to stop this.

I think there should be someone that double checks what is posted before it goes on the boards. Money should not be the reson to put out an add, content and ethical assment should be the the reason not financial gain only.
animals can't speak for themselves so we have to speek for them.

Please Be Aware! I work at the local pet store and last week I spoke with a.
guy who came in to buy a rat. He has a 4-foot ball python, which he pays $10.
per live rat to feed his snake every few weeks. He asked me (dead serious).
if we'd give him a price break on kittens, or call if we got too many.
(presumably because kittens are a bit bigger than a rat and more readily.
available). Of course I told him absolutely not. Then he went on to tell me.

There's another customer who has a monitor (large meat eating lizard) that
boasts regularly to other customers and employees that their lizard prefers
pets over feeders, and laughs, telling people they get free to good home and
cheap rehoming fee pets all the time (hamsters, birds, kittens, etc) off of
craigslist, out of the paper, and from ads they find on post-boards in
grocery stores and what-not. They pose as nice people but your pet becomes
food. Adoption fees of $15 do not deter them! Remember, they're paying $10
for a rat, so $15 for something bigger (bunnies, kittens, etc) is nothing to
them. And for the monitor family, they get a kick out of it - so they are
happy to pay more just to watch their lizard kill your pet. Please be
careful when re-homing your pets... that old "they become snake food" saying
is true!

Craigslist cat killer sentenced
http://www.lifewithcats.tv/2013/01/14/kentucky-craigslist-cat-killer-sentenced/

... Phelps presented himself as a mild mannered animal lover as he collected his victims from Craigslist, and his horrific killing spree is a primary reason why people are advised not to give their cats away on Craigslist. While charged in 8 torture, killing and dismemberment incidents, he admitted to 26 killings to authorities and is thought to have even more victims. ...

Fucking sick. Animal abusers have a special place in hell. Craigslist, pet stores, breeders, other websites with pets for sale, slow your fucking roll, because you're a part of causing so much death, pain and senseless abuse among innocent creatures with souls and spirits who feel pain and happiness and emotions and bleed just as humans do.
