Most animals do not end up in a good way from "free to good home" ads.

Two days ago I adopted a 3 year old cat at the local animal shelter. She is big and beautiful! Love, love, love her!

I suspect that some people are not aware of what happens when they advertise their pets as being 'free to a good home', maybe I should say that I hope this is the case.

"Most animals do not end up in a good way from "free to good home" ads. "

However, some do. Would you close the door for them? Like everything else, you cannot control what people do. Nasty people can walk into a pet shop just as easily as they can have a face to face encounter with someone screening applicants for their litter of puppies/kittens. I would argue that the pet shop owner could not care as much who the animals go home with, so long as a sale is made. This is the real world, and it isn't all good or all bad. We can't control everyone. Bans aren't the answer to anything, it just drives activities underground where it isn't safe.

"The gamble is too big to take -- you are gambling with living, feeling beings. Humans cannot be trusted to have good intentions with these 'for free' animals. One animal abused or neglected is one too many..."

By that logic, all humans should be imprisoned so that they don't hurt anything or anyone. What a fantastic world that would be. That is absolutely ridiculous.

"and it is the rare animal who finds a good and permanent home through these ads."

Also ridiculous - free pets are the best entry point for some poor people to obtain a companion for themselves or their children. Besides, how do you expect pet owners to find homes for their litters of kittens/puppies? Do you want the little ones to go to the already overburdened shelters where they could also be killed?

I'm of the opinion that most shelters have, which is that if you're unwilling to pay a nominal shelter fee to obtain an animal, how responsible will you be in its care? Just like teenagers don't take very good care of what they're given, but are really careful when they have to pay to replace something themselves. I know of one family that has had 3 "free" dogs, and two of them died from neglect or running away.

I noted and signed, but Sara V. did have several good points which go me thinking, it's scary when you don't know what will happen to your kittens when you have them adopted by a stranger, I think I wouldn't sleep at night, that is why "The Cat Lovers Society" tries to place them with good people and they do the screening.

The best thing is to not allow your own pets to have kittens or puppies, because of the fact you never know whats going to happen to them...you are sure to be disappointed and upset with people sooner or later.

"The best thing is to not allow your own pets to have kittens or puppies, because of the fact you never know whats going to happen to them...you are sure to be disappointed and upset with people sooner or later. "

Does that mean we all shouldn't have any children either? Who knows what will happen to them?
