"free To Good Home"

Giving away animals for free is never a good idea. To many people, "Free" = "Worthless".

Before doing this, please read the following article:

Tragedy of Free to Good Home

Any posts offering free pets will be deleted after one warning to edit post to include the words "Adoption fee applies."

Free to a Good Home:
A Death Sentence!

Unfortunately, "free" is too often seen as "worthless" in the eye of the beholder. This is how some people see your giveaway pet:

FREE money from the research lab
FREE bait to train fighting dogs and greyhounds
FREE snake food
FREE sacrifice for satanic rituals
FREE animal for malicious pranks
FREE to a good home to breed indiscriminately
FREE fish bait
FREE animal to set on fire
FREE animal to insert a firecracker into
FREE to feed to reptiles

PLEASE don't offer your companions FREE to a good home unless you just don't care what happens to them. Volunteers who work endless hours to save pets from the horror of abuse and homelessness bring this message to you.
