Free to Good (?) Home

Free To a Good (?) Home
For those of you needing to place an animal, be advised that offering to give the pet free of charge to someone you don't know is a very bad idea. Unbelievable as it seems, and more often than you would guess, people respond to "free to good home" offers for reasons other than wanting a pet.Some turn right around and sell the animal to research labs; others use young or small animals as "bait" for training dogs for illegal fighting, or even feed them to pet snakes!Sadly, these and other gruesome activities are not at all uncommon nowadays, so please - if you are unable to find the animal a home with someone whom you can be absolutely certain will treat it well, take it to a local animal shelter. Don't take a chance on condemning a helpless creature to possible abuse and torture. It isn't fair, and it isn't necessary.
