CraigsLIst: Stop allowing people to post ads for free animals on your site.

It is common knowledge in the rescue community that many free postings on craigslist for free dogs and cats endanger the well being of the animals being given away. Dog fighting professionals and callous re-sellers answer these ads and and assure the owners that they are going to provide a good family home. Many of these craigslist scouters use women and children to pick up the animal so that the person giving their beloved pet away is not alerted to the fact that their pet will end up in horrific conditions. Please ask Craigslist to ban ALL free animal ads and delete any that are listed. 

Craigslist, jim buckmaster CEO at and
Stop allowing people to post ads for free animals on your site.

      We need 9961 more signatures, with the numbers getting smaller every minute - I believe we can work together to get this done! Every click matters - every click brings us one step closer to stopping a venue that is used to exploit, murder and torture animals. I am committed to keeping this petition on the radar until we reach our goal.

      your site seems to be attracting a lot of violent, hateful people, like the serial killer for people and NOW serial killers of animals. i will not use your site until your awareness deepens and you pledge to stop supporting murder
