ExUnfortunately due to certain people in our society who have taken advantage of the pets section of Craigslist and Kijijii it has become an unsafe place to advertise for pets needing new homes.
A few reasons:
- in the case of Captain the German Sheppard who was bought of Craigslist for $200.00 and then brutally beaten left to die in a dumpster
- Last summer a group of guys took as many free or cheap animals off of craigslist and kijijii and went to a rural part of Surrey and released them to use as shooting practice
- This is also the place that apartment breeders (unlicensed) go to place ads on cats and dogs and many of the times these animals are sick.
- There are several people that troll these sights to find animals to not have as pets to care for and love but to torture, abuse and use.
These people have ruined it for the good people who are truly looking for a pet to have to care for and love.
Why take the chance for these animals. There are other avenues such as SPCA, we have several rescues on B.C. that can help find homes for pets and they all have strict screening procedures and this is what you want to make sure pet is placed properly.
Please sign on behalf of the future animals that will need new homes.
