Just an informative...NEVER advertise your pets free to a good home. Too many times to count, these animals wind up in large facilities such as the now defunct Martin Creek Kennels in Arkansas. For those of you unfamiliar to that story: Martin Creek Kennel was owned by C.C. Baird. Animals were acquired by bunchers and were either advertised free to good homes or simply stolen out of people's yards, even while they were home. Baird dealt the dogs to research laboratories such as Sinclair Research Center used by Iams. Research labs subject the animals shaving hair to rub on creams and lotions to test for skin burning causing severe blisters, eye creams that causes blindness, being trapped stationary to induce muscle atrophy, any other similar or worse treatment. Most often they are kept singly in small cages with nothing comfortable to stand or lay on, just slotted metal to allow feces to fall through a tray on the bottom for easy maintenance. Laboratories often lack air conditioning as well. Cats, kittens, mice, guinea pigs, hamsters and other suitable pets often will end up as snake food.

IF YOU HONESTLY CARE FOR YOUR ANIMALS NEVER ADVERTISE THEM FOR FREE!!!!!

IF YOU'RE FORCED TO GIVE THEM UP, TAKE THEM TO THE CLOSEST NO-KILL SHELTER OR ASPCA.

I just googled Martin Creek Kennels. What a horrific story! I can't ever imagine giving my little cat up for anything. In some cases, the person doing the aquiring will offer the pet owner a small sum to "take the animal off their hands" as they so lovingly put it. Why? Because they know they can make 7 times that amount by selling it to a research facility.

The whole thing makes me sick. If anyone tried to tell me I "had" to get rid of my animal for whatever reason they would be told to stuff it where the sun doesnt shine.
