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 already signed this one, but thanks. Yes Milo is a sweetheart.
Please stop. Allowing this to go on makes you just as guilty. These precious gifts given to us by God are being abused in so so many ways. We are their voice and you should be too!
There's a special place in hell for sick scum who use and abuse helpless animals!
I completely agree, Mary!
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.
I know of people being turned down by the humane society to adopt because they do background checks. So how can anyone just let an animal go out to someone that they don't know? Animal cruelty should be severely punished and posted publicly.
This is just so sad! There is no reason for an animal to listed on Craiglist and face an unknown future.
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.. I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man"~ Mahatma Gandhi
Some REÀL sick, sick, sick people in this world today. Oh yes I've signed the petition gladly
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.
