Stop Free Pet Giveaways on Craigslist, Since Many End Up in the Dog Fighting Industry

Animals given away for free are all too often "adopted" by those in the dog fighting industry to be used as bait to help keep the fighting dogs aggressive and violent. The pet "adopted" online is tied up and mouth duct taped closed (so it can't fight back), then the fighting dog is released to tear it to shreds. WE CANNOT LET THIS HAPPEN EVER AGAIN!   Quote from a dog fighter: "The hardest thing is to get enough dogs and cats to use as bait during training. One good source is to check the local newspapers or Craigslist for ads that offer a pet dog or cat for free. My wife dresses up neatly and collects them for me."   Let's fight back against the dogfighting industry by making it illegal to give away pets for free on Craigslist and everywhere else online.

Start your own petition and let's get elected officials everywhere to stop Craigslist from allowing the supply of animals to the dog fighting industry. Let's go viral with this. Nothing can stop us!

Letter to
Senator, California Dianne Feinstein (Senator, California)
Let's make it illegal to give away pets for free on sites like Craigslist, since too often they are "adopted" by those in the dog fighting industry to use as bait to keep their fighting dogs aggressive. You have the power to forever end this free supply of animals to a horrific and illegal industry.
