I'm writing to warn you of the dangers of "free to a good home" advertisements. Recently, I have looked into and researched dog fighting and its events. One jaw-dropping fact needs to be known. I want our local citizens to know that dog fighters sometimes get "bait" animals from free to a good home advertisements shown daily in the newspaper. I'm almost positive that when pet owners get rid of their animal, they don't want to get rid of it, they have to. I'm completely sure, if people knew of these serious events happening, they would be sure to check into the new owner. These owners, who are looking for a good, loving home for their pet, don't know what kind of heartbreaking things their pet could face when with the new owner.

When giving your pet away, possibly ask the person a few questions. Ask to see the person's home. Do your best to make sure your pet will be in good hands and properly taken care of rather than being ripped apart by a vicious dog.
