As an animal welfare advocate, dealing with the problem of unwanted dogs in the U.S. these days is a gut wrenching and overwhelming task. The problem of unwanted animals is worse than it has EVER been. Rescue organizations and animal care advocates CANNOT KEEP UP. It is a tireless, heartbreaking and neverending battle. 

However, one of the things we CAN do to try to curb the ease with which these greedy, heartless backyard breeders sell these (often sick) poorly bred dogs, is to make it so that Craigslist (an online classified with little to no regulation) is COMPLETELY BANNED FROM ANY AND ALL ANIMAL SALES... EVEN "REHOMES." This forum has made it so unbelievably easy for anyone to obtain a puppy of ANY breed at ANY time with no questions asked. It has also made it possible for people to literally make a living off breeding animals, with ZERO effort, ZERO questions asked and ZERO accountability. 

THIS. HAS. GOT. TO. STOP. 

LET'S BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION FOR ONCE AND NOT A PART OF THE PROBLEM! STAYING QUIET IS BEING PART OF THE PROBLEM! LET'S LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD! LET'S BE THEIR VOICE!
