Do not list the pet on Craig’s List. Class B dealers, posing as a pet’s owners, are known to mine the site for animals they then resell to animal testing labs. In the wise words of animal rescuer, Marie Winter:
I am part of a national animal rescue coalition. If you give this dog to a “free to good home” ad this will happen:
• The dog may be sold into medical research
• May be sold as bait into a pitbull fighting ring
• May be given to someone who will resell it for profit
• May be sold to a rendering plant
I wish these were exaggerations. We get 200 animal abandonment notices a day and if we get 20 quality lifetime adoption contacts a month that is what we are dealing with. If you take this dog to a county pound, it will be killed there. If it is “adopted” the above could happen as they do not screen the homes. These animals are gifts from God and it is up to all of us to ensure they are safe. There is no magic to getting this animal in a safe situation.
