Unfortunately, most people are not aware of the terrible things that can happen to these precious furbabies, if they don't screen potential new owners, carefully.
There are creeps who will "adopt" these free animals for the sole purpose of selling them to laboratories for cruel experiments... And worse...they could be slaughtered and eaten!!
You may already be aware of a group called BRESNA, which is headed by a person going by the name of Brother Ellis. Their disgusting website keeps popping up on one server after another. They advocate slaughtering and eating Dogs and Cats! They state that the best and easiest way to get free meat is to answer these FREE TO GOOD HOME ads. They give instructions on how to "prepare" the "meat", and even supply RECIPES! They also say that one way to fatten up the dogs, is to feed them kittens!!!
He claims to have over 500 followers in the US, Europe and Australia. Every effort is being made to locate and stop him; so, please don't complain to his server if you come across his page. The longer he stays in one place on the internet - the better the chance of tracking him down.
Take a few moments of your time; and, check your local newspaper for "FREE TO GOOD HOME" ads. Call these people and warn them of the dangers. Remind them to screen potential owners, carefully. Call the newspaper, itself. Ask them to post warnings to advertisers.

If people would only learn to spay/neuter their pets, there wouldn't be so many FREE and homeless animals. Sadly, only a small percentage of these furbabies will actually find a "good home".
PLEASE...help make people aware. By forwarding this to everyone you know, countless innocent lives can be saved! Thank you.
