Please let people know about this new trend “dog flipping”…we may be putting our animals in danger by using Craigslist to help them…
Please do your homework when using ANY social media or listing service. Although we say to advertise for adopters and/or fosters online, it is ultimately up to us to carefully and responsibly place animals in homes. We have the control over who gets to adopt our rescued dogs and cats. Online background checks are cheap! Vet offices keep records on people who have pets. If there is no Vet record on file, RED FLAG!
Please take this as a wake-up call to those of us who do rescue often. Do not be fooled, do your homework.
An article we posted on our Facebook pages a few weeks ago highlights all the reasons why people SHOULD NOT post for their animals to be adopted or fostered on Craigslist. There is a new trend in this nation called “Dog Flipping” and the Huffington Post has detailed on what to look out for.
