On Christmas Eve we were alerted by a friend about a “Puppy free to good home” post on Craiglist. These friends wanted to adopt this dog, so we contacted the owner, who was unaware of the dangers of posting his pup for free on Craigslist. The owner was very appreciative for us explaining to him the dangers his family pet could have faced. The owner was thankful knowing his pup would be going to a good home with a loving family who would care for the dog. We headed out on Christmas Eve to pick up the dog, and transport her to her new family. Now named Molly, this pup and her new family had a very Merry Christmas!
Every year, millions of animals are posted on Craigslist “for sale” and/or “free to a good home.” Most of these animals end up in less than ideal situations. These poor Craigslist critters sometimes end up in labs as test animals, used in illegal dog fighting rings, utilized as bait dogs, used by backyard breeders, etc. These posts have contributed to the torture and death of thousands of animals.
Please help educate others about the dangers of Craigslist animal sales and re-homing posts.
Merry Christmas, Molly!
