PLEASE ask a fee for your pet and have your pet spayed or neutered BEFORE you post them on CL.
Why, you ask?

Because here are TWO situations that happened recently:

A friend posted a poodle that she found, free to a good home. A woman came to her home and took the poodle, claiming she loved her and would take good care of her. Two days later the poodle was back on CL for sale!! She was able to get her back, the the poodle was anxious and upset. God knows what happened to her in those two days. She did NOT have a loving home that was promised.

A friend found a golden retriever, thin and with a broken hip, dumped at a gas station in San Antonio. He had been laying there for days, and people were leaving him crackers, but NO ONE stopped to help him. She took him to the vet to be put down, because he could no longer walk and was in bad shape. He just happened to have a microchip! His "previous" owners had given him away FREE on Craigslist to a woman with two daughters! They too, thought he had a good home!!

PLEASE rethink what you are doing before you send your pets off to the world of unknown adopters! SCREEN people, ask questions, charge a fee, visit their home! DO NOT send your pets off to be abused, bred or injured. Their innocent lives are in YOUR hands. DO RIGHT BY THEM!!
