Petition to Ask Craigslist to Ban Re-Homing of Pet Posts

Please consider signing (click on the link to sign) this petition to ask Craigslist to ban pet re-homing posts, or only allow registered shelters and rescues to post adoptable pets so it is never again a part of tragedies like what happened to Puppy Doe who was found brutally tortured in a Massachusetts park after being posted for adoption on Craigslist.

Here is some info from the petition.  What a heartbreaking story. 

Justice for Puppy Doe: Tell Craigslist to Help Stop Violence Against Pets

On August 31st 2013, a young, small, female dog named ‘Puppy Doe’ was found brutally tortured in a Quincy, Massachusetts park, and we were all left wondering who could let this happen to any animal. The dog’s injuries were so violent and severe that the only humane thing to do was to euthanize her. She had been starved, burned, stabbed, and limbs pulled from her joints in what’s been described as a “medieval’ style torture.

It was later determined that the original owner of the dog had to give her up due to breed restrictions. According to media reports, the owner decided to put the dog, named Kiya, up for adoption on Craigslist. Craigslist is often a go-to source for animal abusers looking for victims because it is anonymous and there is no accountability or screening process like regular shelters and rescue groups provide.I'm asking Craigslist to ban all of these re-homing posts, or only allow registered shelters and rescues to post adoptable pets so it is never again a part of tragedies like what happened to Puppy Doe.
