The epidemic of pet overpopulation results directly in the global euthanization of over 10 MILLION companion animals every year.

Who causes this epidemic? Puppy mills and backyard breeders who masquerade as legitimate breeders and advertise under false pretenses on online marketplaces such as Craigslist, Kijiji and other sites.

The math is simple: just follow the money…

  1. they breed (mass-produce) these long suffering animals in unbelievably inhumane conditions at very low cost and sell them under false pretenses or...
  2. they “adopt” them from well-meaning animal shelters for a minimal adoption fee and re-home (re-sell) them at a huge mark-up.

Despite their continued claims, classified sites like Craigslist and Kijiji are totally incapable of distinguishing registered and responsible breeders from those who profit on the suffering of companion animals. One animal abuser in the Canada manages to advertise on Kijiji despite a LIFETIME BAN”

“These classified sites are businesses that are susceptible to public opinion and outcry. Let this petition serve as notice that we, as customers, strongly urge them to immediately shut down this ad category. We also acknowledge that these animals often display severe psychological, behavioral and genetic health defects.

We strongly support the forwarding of this petition to the USDA and similar government agencies around the world urging them to strengthen and standardize Animal Welfare Acts and their equivalencies, to further protect these helpless animals”.

Will this petition work? With credit to Barbara LaPointe, we republish this amazing statistic:

Since the ban in Albuquerque, New Mexico came into effect in 2007, by 2009 there was a shelter adoption increase of 23% and euthanasia decrease of 35% and shelter intake decreased 6%.

Yes- with your support in Signing and Sharing this petition, it will work.

Reasons for signing:

"I am a veterinarian and work with our local animal shelter. The biggest dog breeding facility in our area (500 breeding dogs) advertises exclusively on the Internet--both Kijiji and LesPac(a popular site in our province). They proudly--and legally--sell over 800 puppies every year, without the need for potential buyers even coming to their facility and seeing the parents. Less than two years ago in our city there was a deranged individual who answered Kijiji ads to buy dogs from private homes; after purchasing them, he killed them mercilessly. These are sufficient reasons for Kijiji to stop allowing the sale of live animals over the Internet.” “Ethics. A matter of greed to address. People need to think pet purchasing through instead of impulse buying. These are living breathing creations. Dogs actually have emotions, like people. Do the right thing. Stop the ads, change this world!” By allowing this, you condone it. By banning it, you join the movement to stop the cruelty.” I”'ve had a firsthand experience with a puppy from Kijiji. Seller seemed nice, everything looked great and I was fooled into buying a Great Dane with mental issues. The seller disappeared without a trace (even changed their phone number) shortly after selling the dog to me. The puppy was adorable, but had such severe and extreme mental issues that he had to be put to sleep at only one year and a half. This broke my heart to pieces, and I don't want this to ever happen again, neither to me nor to anyone. Losing a dog is too painful, and that poor pup mentally suffered all of his short life. I learned from my mistakes, and I hope I can help save others, dogs and people alike, from this.” “Animals should not be sold like a product. They are sentient beings and should be treated with respect. This site allows the puppy/cat/ mills to stay in business.”
