    Bernie, you cannot get a dog for $150 anywhere else as far as I know. A rescue dog will set you back $350 here, might be a bit cheaper in rural areas. Of course, usually that is to cover the vet costs for desexing and vacciations. And any money that might be left over, will go back to the rescue organisation.

    You still get people giving away dogs for free in the classifieds of course. I agree with others that it is risky and asking money for them might at least weed out some of the irresponsible pet owners. It's just a shame that in this case that money might go to an irresponsible pet owner!

    And New1: recently an ad appeared in the local online classifieds of a person wanting a dog for free, desexed and vaccinated, house trained and with basic obedience training. She didn't care if it didn't come with food (this is true!) but would prefer if they came with their bedding and toys. She admitted to having no money at all. The ad went on like that and it was very clear this person should never own a dog (someone posted on a forum that they knew here and that she had mental health issues). Someone reported it to the RSPCA here who contacted the person and convinced her to take the ad down and consider maybe adopting a cat instead.

    I think I'd email the link to the RSPCA.

    There's no link, it is posted on a page on FB. With hundreds of other posts. Maybe something could be sent to the people who moderate the page... I am not sure what to say though...

    "No dog should be free to good home. Too many get taken by people just wanting to make a quick buck - but they don't look after the dog properly. Some get taken by people who want them for dog fights as bait or fighters. "
    A good majority of my pets I have received via free to good home and I have loved them and cared for them to the best of my abilities. I think people who give away animals need to be sure of where they are going.

    If anyone is interested I can post some links to the FB pages I am on.

    We seek out and report dodgy classified advertisements (underage pups, unvaccinated, overpriced etc), send out Fully Aware (desexing/puppy mill) letters and have a page going to help ban pages that promote selling/breeding and trading animals.

    Good idea Hya, I wasn't aware that CL did that kind of thing until I just read the post before yours.
