Frustrated with Kijiji and Craiglist Ads
It seems too easy for people to purchase puppies from sites like Kijiji and Craiglist. The lack of responsible breeding and uninformed puppy buyers is running ramped and something must be done.
I have some ill desire to look on these sites and each time I get the same results – anger mixed with disgust, frustration and sadness for the animal.
There are also so many listings for owners selling their animal or trading them… it makes me sick! Tonight for instance I saw a posting for a 3 month old puppy (who looks terrified) they ‘just want our money back’ because ‘we don’t have time for a puppy right now and it doesn’t get along with their dog’. Really?!!? REALLY?!!?!? ARRRRRRRRRRRGHH!!!! These Kijiji puppies are the same dogs that a few months down the road are up for adoption at a Shelter or Rescue or sometimes a worse fate.
Can something be done!?!? We need responsible and caring breeders and owners. How can we educate the public?
