Funny ad

Unfortunately, there are TONS of people who choose to rehome their animals because of what may seem like reasons they could have avoided or thought through earlier, and some may even be thoughtless because people just discard animals like it is nothing.

I saw this ad today when browsing craigslist and thought it was hilarious It is obviously a joke, so there is no need to go reporting anything, it is just making a mockery of a common immature and thoughtless reason many people use for having to rehome animals

I always wonder why the baby comes and the pet goes. It would be like oh here is a new baby the older baby has got to go. LOL
Love the kids in the crate.

This is a good one.
Many people lie about the reasons why they want to rehome their pet.
In our German linnie forum the mods search the net for linnies offered by people who want to rehome them.
When I see the pictures of the cute birds I feel sad because I think they are no longer beloved by their humans.

That is funny. They put those ads up every once in a while. I had seen one a few years ago, but the pet they were getting was a border collie. I think one of my linnies came from a perpetual re-homer. I keep seeing ads for birds and dogs she's selling because of "going back to work and no longer have any time". I really don't know what's going on, because they are different birds and they are being sold for pretty low prices so I don't think it's a flipping situation...oh well, at least Stitch has a permanent home now.

I've seen many things like this as of recent. It is very, very true though. People do shun their animals away as soon as they decide to have a child and it is totally unfair. Hopefully this gets the message across in a humorous way
