Most people have good intentions when they advertise a cat or dog as “free to good home.”
They care what happens to the animal all they want to do is find a nice family that is willing to give the pet a loving, responsible home. The tragedy occurs when the animal is mistakenly put into a situation where it is neglected, abandoned, abused or even sold for lab experimentation.
Sadly, this sort of thing happens thousands of times each day across America.
What can happen to a pet that is given free to a casual, uncommitted owner?
