free or low cost ways to help shelter and rescue dogs
– Other groups, called “Bunchers” scour classifieds for free dogs, then sell them to laboratories for animal research and experimentation.
I would just like to state that not ALL free to a good home dogs are mistreated and killed or sent to people that are horrible pet owners. I gave my dog away free to a good home due to her having some aggression issues after having my baby. I gave my dog away to a good home. So not all animals that are given away free to a good home are beaten or left to die. I do extensive research on the g people I give away the animals I foster as well as my own dog that I unfortunately had to rehome. I never charge a rehoming fee but I make darn good sure they go to great families. And I most definetely DO NOT treat animals badly, and none of the animals I’ve fostered or kept as my own have never had any diseases or died due to neglect on my part. Just had to post my opinion, that not ALL free to a good home ads end up like this.
I don’t think anyone is saying to not ever GIVE away a free dog. Just do a little research and check out the person you are giving it to. Most rescues and even shelters to a background check and even visit your home to make sure you have a fenced place for the dog. They also require that if you rent, you have a written statement from your landlord that you can have a pet. The majority of people who take a pet will take care of them but there are some that do abuse animals and will take advantage of the Free to Good Home ads. If you love your pet and really have to rehome and want to not charge, then do a little background checkup before you place the dog. A person that really wants to give your dog a home will not mind answering your questions. I have two dogs I actually bought, two I rescued from pound,one that I took in when my Dad died and a cat that I found injured when she was just a kitten. I took her immediately to the vet and they had to amputate her tail, and after that initial visit which included shots, I took her back to be spayed and each of these 6 pets get their shots and are fed and loved family members whether they were free to start with or whether I had to pay a fee to get them. Pets may come to your home for free but they are not free after you get them.

Now in the care of Guardians of Rescue, the group’s first act was to free the pooch of his chains. After his jail break, the dog, now named Bear, was loaded into a car and taken to an animal spa to receive some well-deserved pampering and medical care.
