    Long story short back in September I lost a cat, that I never found, so after I lost him I started posting the following ad on CL in hopes that others that had also lost their pets, who didnt know the sites to check, would see it & my post would help them out so they would hopefully find their lost pet/s. Every since I started posting this some jerk/s keep flagging my ad [​IMG]! Who flags an ad where someone is trying to help others find their lost pets??? Also after visiting shelters looking for my cat & seeing how many animals there really are that need homes I attached a note to potential adopters so they to know to look at the sites ive included in my list. Somebody has WAY TOO much time on their hands [​IMG].

    This is the ad ive been posting. Ive included it in the "Pets" & "Lost & Found" sections of CL. Please note ive removed the links I have posted on my real CL ads in case any are in violation of BYC rules.

    * To people looking to adopt a pet or pets: most of what ive posted here is directed towards you to!

    Please PLEASE check these sites daily or as often as possible, & at least once a week I would visit each place I have listed & ask staff to look up records, descriptions, & pictures is they have them. Dont forget that even though you may know your pets breed/s & color/s staff might have guessed wrong & listed them as something else completely different. There are always quite a few animals listed on these sites but there is NEVER every single animal up. Some do not get put up till weeks later, some never do, & some are put up for & adopted before there is chance if presumed a stray or believed to not have anyone looking for them for any reason. Owner surrenders arent always an owner thats had them a while. There are people that pick them up then cant keep them or some will do that with stolen animals etc etc etc. I hope this helps many folks get their pets back. Sadly not all circumstances will put a lost pet in a shelter or rescue but it can still help quite a few!

    The "Pets" and "Lost & Found" sections of CL
    *To folks that have lost their cats I highly recommend, on sites that have the option, checking other states since some cats have that nasty little habit of hiding in vehicles that happen to be headed 1/2 way across the country.

    * To ALL pet owners: Please get your pets micro chipped! I know many people have heard & read this before & I know many many people have financial issues, but if you look around you can find vets that will do it for $20 or so per pet. Even if your really bad off try to save up the money piece by piece. Just GET IT DONE. Simply call around to different vets to see who charges how much. I think Sunrise vet clinic in Rio Rancho charges about $16 each so my pets I havent gotten chipped yet have their appointments scheduled.

    *I plan to keep re-posting this so people, who do not already do, know where to frequently check, & as I find more sites to search I plan to add them to the above list.

    Good Luck finding your lost pets or good luck adopting!

  2. Hugs to you Queenie, that is so thoughtful of you to think of others that may have lost a pet they love.

    And it also a good thing to remind people that there are way too many pets that need a home, just look at CL in the pet section anywhere in the country, & you will see many many pets that have lost their homes.
    Thank You for bringing this up.

    I know exactly how you feel. I posted "Lessons Available" through my local classified site (similar to CL) and had someone flag my ad. I was very irritated with it and contacted the webmaster who said it was not horse related, when three ads down was another ad for lessons that was left up! [​IMG]

    I think people that do that are: A.) Jealous and B.) Bored and have nothing better to do!

    Thanks guys! Yeah some people can be real morons. In retaliation I posted an ad called "Food for Thought", & in it are 2 pics I got off the "Oh Craigslist You Amuse Me SO" thread that show, in little cartoons, what happens when you leave a single pair of cats & dogs unaltered & breeding over a number of years. I give this one less than hour. Good thing I take online classes at home & am on the computer all day so I can repost as often as it gets flagged [​IMG] muahahaha. I really hope that at least some people read it & pass it on.

    Peaches Lee: any chance you were flagged by the other lesson instructor? I also advertise my small pet hammocks on CL & the same thing happens. After my post is gone the other hammock maker's ad shows up. Sad thing is that if its them that is flagging me they feel threatened & their hammocks are clearly fancier. Sheesh!

    You have to be carful what you say when you make your post. People will flag you for just about anything. I had a green cheek conure on there once and someone kept flaging him down. I go to look who is still up and its some breeder that has 15+ of them and breeds them all year round. He flagged every single post for a conure so his was the only one up.
