Noted, Signed & Shared the petition! How tragic that this beautiful puppy was so horribly abused by such people. I hope they find the perpetrators of this truly depraved crime and that they get the maximum punishment- but it won't be enough. I hope that we can finally get these ads banned on Craigslist! Rest in peace beautiful little angel!

I have posted and promoted numerous petitions here at Care2 regarding Criagslist animal cruelty cases. I honestly don't know where our signatures are going. This is just one of THOUSANDS of animal abuse/cruelty cases associated with Craigslist animal "adoptions." Honestly, the Feds need to get involved with this. Enough is enough.

From the petition author:

This petition will be sent to Jim Buckmaster, Craigslist's CEO.

On August 31st 2013, a young, small, female dog was found brutally tortured in a Quincy, Massachusetts park. Her injuries were so severe, so brutal, that the only humane thing to do was to euthanize her.

It was later determined that the original owner of the dog had to give her up due to breed restrictions. This owner surrendered the pup to a shelter where she was apparently adopted, and then this adopter dumped the dog on Craigslist.

Just last year in Virginia, a man was convicted of being a dog serial killer after mutilating and killing 29 puppies he collected off of Craigslist. (Story here: http://our-compass.org/2012/04/11/free-to-a-good-home-craigslist-dog-killer-sentenced-in-west-virginia/)

The before and after pictures of "Puppy Doe" speak for themselves. How many more times does this have to happen before Craigslist bans these ads?

Another infamous local murder story that made headlines in 2009, known as the "Craigslist Killer" murders (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Markoff) led Craigslist to ban the "erotic services" section of their site. Then, as it is now, it was sad that a violent crime had to happen in order for change to take place, but those of us who love Puppy Doe and want to do right by her, are hoping those in charge finally do the right thing.

It's beyond words that this sweet, innocent dog, that once knew love had to suffer this violent, evil fate, but at the very least, if the banning of "rehoming", and "giving away" of pets was banned on Craligslist there would be a small amount of justice in her name.

Her name was "Kiya" before her owner, who could not take her to a new apartment, "re-homed" her through Craigslist. Kiya was tortured in what can only be characterized as what a monster would have done to extract the maximum amount of suffering from his/her victim through the usage of Medieval-style torture methods. We CANNOT allow the monsters that did this go unpunished or hurt another animal.

God bless Kiya. Damn those who tortured her to eternal fires of hell with no mercy.

From Facebook:

Online event to send a clear message to the CRAIGSLIST CEO and owner that Rehoming Animal ads must not be allowed on Craigslist, and if they must be on there - maybe an adoption fee should be charged?

CRAIGSLIST information.

Please send a POLITE message to Craig Newmark.

You can email him at Craig@Craigslist.com.

If enough of us reach out to to him, then perhaps he might just do something to help?

Email.. press@craigconnects.org the media contact's name is Bruce Bonafede

Let Craig know that these rehoming ads are not such a good idea.

Let him know about Puppy Doe - Kiya.

I did sign this petition and looks like I noted 2 news posts at least. My comments are not all showing up.
It seems C2 has a ton of glitches and a lot of people online today.

My comment in another post is that I don't know what to say. It's so severe what was done that many of us would kill to have protected this baby.

Hoping money talks and someone speaks up to get JUSTICE. Notheing will bring this baby back but Justice has to be served and craigslist needs to shut down the pet part of it.
Craigslists has a severely bad name now and for many horrible acts.You would think this is simple. STOP!!! Don't allow these ads.

I'm going to sign again 2 more times the petition at least .I can do that from another IP address .

I don't have anything Ok to say.

Why do people still rehome through these sites - everyone knows the monsters are out there.

That poor dog's suffering is not the first from that bloody Craig's List or other similar sites and adverts. Ban the lot.

People need to make lifetime commitments to their pets and not treat them like an old washing machine you dump on Craigslist. Craigslist needs to stop allowing these kinds of ads, but even more important, we need to stop dumping pets in shelters, on the streets, etc. Breeders should never sell an animal pet that's not spayed/neutered first. They need to screen all adopters heavily, just like rescues do, and they need to agree to take the pet back at any time for any reason for the life of the animal, just as rescues do. Shelters need to work with rescues to ensure that they have the same option. Pet stores selling animals need to be outlawed. And we, the pet guardians, need to make sure we do all we can to care for our companions responsibly, and for the life of the animal, even when that makes life difficult or creates inconvenience. Go the extra mile to find an apartment that allows pets. Train your dog *before* you bring your new baby home to prevent any issues, and so on. Finally all of us are needed to help rescue the animals whose humans didn't live up to their commitment. Whether you can foster, help with admin and other behind the scenes work, or you can donate, we all need to help with rescue in one way or another if want to see this problem corrected. Do something today to help a rescue. It's the only way we can fix this.

Sometimes I lose faith in humanity. Sometimes I think there is no possibility of a better world. But all of you give me, with your actions, the strength to keep fighting day by day

Pets should not be advertised for free period! If a pet is to be located to a new home you should personally go & check the home & interview the people to make sure you are happy that your baby will be safe & loved.

Utterly sickening - such vile b's to torture that innocent pup they must be found and imprisoned before they do more/worse! And what a sick unethical organisation is Craiglist to know and still allow pets to be advertised to such demented readers for free - unforgiveable! The laws and system must be changed.
I think the time has come for all new pet owners to be licensed, their suitability properly checked, have an appropriate animal welfare provisions contract to sign, and mandatory microchipping of all pets, so owners can easily be traced if necessary.

Craigslist did reply. Their reply was a joke. Basically they just sent me a reply telling me how to contact them for various types of complaints! They didn't even mention anything about what I actually wrote them about!
