I recently ed a petition that opened my eyes to how insensitive the human race can actually be towards animals. These headlines paint the picture of struggles animal advocates face everyday in welfare and rescue. For every one advocate out there, there will be thousands of other people who will breed animals for the sole purpose of making a dollar and nothing else. They sell off animals they breed, by the dozens, to complete strangers with no consideration or compassion for the animals quality of life and the home its going to.
Where do you ask inhumane transactions like this are being processed? Look no further than Craiglist. For many years now, Craigslist.
Our friends at ForceChange. Story posted by Charlene Wu on ForceChange. Craigslist, the popular classified advertisement website, allows people to sell furniture, cars, apartments, and other personal items through online interactions.
For animal welfare reasons, Craigslist does not allow the sale of any pets or animals, but the adoption of pets, with a small re-homing fee, is allowed. This causes many problems, as these pets are oftentimes coming out of illegal puppy mills and kitten mills. Unknowingly, those who end up buying these animals from Craigslist are contributing to the inhumane puppy and kitten mill industry. Another major problem with selling and adopting pets on Craigslist is that the transactions are unregulated. Not only are people unaware of where the animals are coming from, but they are also unaware of where their animals are going.
There have been many cases of people adopting free pets for cruel practices. It has also been reported that many pets that are adopted from Craigslist are used as bait in dog fighting rings, or sold to research labs for scientific testing. In addition, some people are adopting the puppies, kittens, and small mammals on Craigslist as food for their large snakes and lizards.
These buyers may pose as nice pet owners, but it is difficult to verify their authenticity without the background checks, home visits, and pre-screening tests that many animal shelters and rescues enforce. After further investigation, it was discovered that the mother of the puppies was actually a stolen dog. Without knowing for sure where the animals are coming from or where the animals are going, people posting or adopting pets on Craigslist are taking a huge risk. They may be unknowingly contributing to the cruel puppy mill industry, or accidentally selling their best friend to a life of misery and pain.
The problem with this is that many of these animals are coming from illegal puppy and kitten mills. Craigslist should not contribute to the exploitation of animals for the benefit of puppy mills and kitten mills. People who end up buying these pets off of Craigslist are also contributing to the inhumane commercialized breeding industry. Although the sale of animals is not allowed on Craigslist, it is still happening and people are getting away with it.
Another problem with selling and adopting pets on Craigslist is that adopters and adoptees do not know where their pets are coming from or where their pets are going. There have been many reported instances of people adopting free pets for cruel practices. Some animals are used as live bait for dog fighting rings, and some are sold to research facilities for scientific testing.
In addition, some people are adopting kittens, puppies, and small mammals as food for their larger snakes and lizards. Without strict regulation, those who are posting or adopting pets on Craigslist are taking a huge risk.
These people may be unknowingly contributing to the puppy mill industry, or accidentally selling their pets to a life of misery and torture. Please the ForceChange. You are commenting using your WordPress.
