BOYCOTT CRAIGSLIST UNTIL THEY TAKE DOWN FREE ANIMAL LISTINGS

People are taking the free animals and using them for baiting in dog fighting rings or if they are purebred and no neutered they are using them in backyard puppy mills.

Animal abuse is running rampant in this country and by providing abusers "free animals" you are subjecting that animal to torture and ulimately death.

Though craigslist states that it warns posters about the potential for animal abuse and asks them to go to the "free homes for good pets", they rarely do.  Generally the animal is picked up by the person who is getting the animal.

There has been a recent high profile case in Houston, Texas where a couple was making CRUSH films with dogs off craigslist and other classified sites that offer free animals.  See video.

Should this really be the way we allow our animals to be trafficked?   

CRAIGLIST .. DON'T BE PART OF THE PROBLEM, BE PART OF THE SOLUTION.

      Another idiot selling his unregistered pit bull on craigslist. I guess he wants her to get her faced ripped off in a dog fight. Does not say if she is neutered but I am going to assume she is not since she is not registered. That means she can be used for breeding. Either way, it is not good.

      Because this is absolutely disgusting, no good comes out of Craigslist for anything. Animal abuse and the rules and laws of who can own animals need to be changed. Just like not everyone should be a parent not everyone should own animals. And those people who were shooting animals are lucky I didn't witness that because my car would have a lot of damage.

      Too many animals are ending up tortured or killed because no one is checking on who is adopting them.
