After reading through this entire post, I have to say that many of you ladies have managed to make yourselves sound like neanderthals.
Yes the issue at hand is pathetic. This Lindsay chick is a pimple on the butt of society; her profiting off from a poor animal is disgusting. The fact that she may be taking these animals away from potential forever homes that may now be animal-less because, as Ab's said, they may not have that initial large amount up front is saddening. This makes her a pathetic excuse for a human being- rich or not.
As for you Lillie&Emily's Mom, I am curious as to what adults you are going to go talk to. You have the intelligence of a baboon and have made yourself appear very childish and immature. And for calling other people dumb you obviously have no realization of how ignorant the term "y'all" makes any person look. I find it ridiculous that you would be willing to sacrifice your families well being by having random strangers call them at work. You are a self-absorbed wench who has no code of ethics or morals. I guess just by you standing up for Lindsay should say it all. I pity your poor unknowing children. I can just imagine how pathetic they will turn out with you raising them. Hopefully DHS will intervene and they will have some hope for their future.
i just checked out the dog flipper's pictures and oh dear, someone please give the girl some tweezers or a gift card to get her eyebrows waxed!!!
i'll tell yall (oops, sorry, i really do say that word...lol), i don't have money to go off and spend on a bunch of crap, but i do keep up on the eyebrows, my hair coloring (which i do at home!) and at least a LITTLE makeup...i hate when women don't try, b/c you could take a butt ugly chick and make her at least half way decent by throwing on some mascara, tweezing the brows, and straightening her hair...i'm not a pro, but jeez!
i feel horrible for those puppies...i'm trying to find a new home for my dog but i'm afraid to rehome her right now since this chick has changed her info!
Preggo before you rehome to somone on post there's a family that starved my dog DON'T REHOME WITH THEM... I can't post info because there's an open investigation going on but if you want I will pm there info
Anywho when you have all that money why should you care what you look like? Wow 1000 play money? Gee golly gosh that's sooooo much money...
Listen the more you say you have the LESS we believe you!
You can continue to flag/delete me but I can cut and paste each and every post I have made and I have most of other posts that has been made on this subject including those that give names,email addresses and phone numbers of the suspected perpetrator of such a DASTARDLY deed, so flag away. . . . no skin off my nose ! ! ! ! ! You see,the Military also defends the right to FREEDOM of SPEECH/OPINION .
Hopefully someone has turned in the "poster" who is being accused of turning FREE pets for PROFIT and has called the proper authorities for the FILTHY THREATENING posts that were made on Friday night. Hopefully this person will be held accountable for their DISPEAKABLE actions and business practices.
*****AGAIN ALL THIS IS OPEN TO INTERPRETATION AS TO WHAT YOU ARE CALLING ILLEGAL AND DESPICABLE ACTION. YOU SEEM PRETTY DETERMINED TO RUIN SOMEONES LIFE. WHAT WOULD YOU TELL THE AUTHORITIES "so and so sold my dog I gave and and I am mad about it?" YOU NEED TO GOOGLE "FREE ENTERPRISE" AND A FEW OTHER BUSINESS TERMS.*****
Again I am not condoning ANYONE lying to get something but if someone surrenders their pet for whatever reason, a fact is a fact, THEY DID NOT WANT IT ANYMORE!! Onward and upward, learn from your mistakes and do better next time.
Facts are ----
It is NOT illegal to re-sell animals!
As someone stated if it is a business and you have multiple breeding animals then you MAY be required to get a a breeder's license IF you are in the city limits.
Re-homing spayed or neutered animals would NOT fall into the same category as breeding stock.
All this aside part of the responsibility falls on the person who gave up the animal.
If you want to generalize things you could consider the breed specific rescues that on occasion go to the shelters to find certain breeds only to re-sell/re-home them for u to $350. Isn't that considered making a profit?
What about the reputable breeders, the ones who have their animals tested, vaccinated and have a contract requiring the animal to be altered? You really think they don't make a profit?
If someone saves a box of puppies sitting at a Wal Mart parking lot, gets them vaccinated, wormed and then re-sells them for $50 to recover cost, isn't THAT still making a profit?
Doesn't it count for anything that they took the animal from an unwanted situation and found that animal a place where it WAS wanted?
Most everyone that has animals IS an animal lover.
No one here should generalize everyone who re-sells animals into one group!!
i am a mom and i dont wear makeup you dont have to wear make-up to be pretty or feel pretty and also to be pretty you have to be pretty on the inside and with all this talk i am starting to see that nobody in this chat is. so the girl puts her hair up who care and hasnt had a chance to go anywhere she has a baby what do you expect
" sit's and watch's " ha ha
i know i don't know none of you all but i like this site alot and i don't agree with the dog filpping and am hoping i spell that right well u all take care and see you all on the flip side
Actually to state the fact:
If I found a box of puppies and got them vaccinated and dewormed and fed them and then sold them for $50 I would not be selling it for profit. Actually I would be taking a loss because to get a puppy their first shots can cost up to $60 heart worm $5 and food depending on how long you have them $10 plus, bed, leashes, supplies etc. I would think I am trying to recoup fees spent on the puppies. Making a profit would be selling them for $300 when I only spent $100 originally.
Another thing taking a dog from an unwanted situation and then selling it right after is not helping the dog. Im sure the families could have stayed with the dog for a few more days while an actual family that actually wants to keep him comes along. All shes doing is taking a dog from an unwanted situation and putting the dog in another unwanted situation.
Also we are not generalizing we are commenting on a specific person with a specific agenda. If you buy a dog for $60 and then re-sell for $350 I mean seriously how can one justify that. Also it is illegal to re-home an animal for more than $100 on craigslist.
Also I have a baby and still manage to look pretty every day. i also dont wear make up but I do my hair and take care of my face with skin products. Im not saying shes ugly Im just commenting on Keri's point of view. you say that people are only pretty on the inside but what makes you ugly then talking $hit or using unwanted animals to gain profit...you tell me.. Also you dont have to be going somewhere to look pretty, you should have pride in yourself and get up and look pretty for you.
And Ken I agree with you I also like this site because you can express your opinions. the only negative side is the occasional annoying email from people mad at you because you have an opinion..OMG get over it its life. If you had a negative opinion about me Id just laugh in your face and move on because I know whats true and right and thats all that matters to me. You look like silly defending yourself to the bitter end especially when no one cares about what you have to say and nothing will change the popular opinion of this group.
no where does it state 100 on craigslist it says (Household pets of any kind including but not limited to dogs, cats, primates, cage birds, rodents, reptiles, amphibians, fish. Re-homing with small adoption fee OK ) which a small rehoming fee could be anything and i understand where your coming from but she does get their shots and stuff because mine did and she gave me the reciept for it she went and got it at the animal birth control clinic but anyways its over with now and the pics who cares what she looks like to me if someone wants to wear their hair up thats fine so she wanted to put it up who cares and her hair is naturally straight from preggo mommy so no need for a straightner she prob just didnt want to but thats her choice and i was told today by her shes going to the authorities because of her personal info being on there they said she has a case and they said she may have had dogs but she doesnt now so theres nothing they can do about that so but i know she went to them today as she called me but im getting off here night all
HELLO KERRY SIFON
You know what your right about the $100. I just checked I could have swore it said that but any ways your missing the point. $350-$600 is not a small re-homing fee not even $200 is a small re-homing fee. I think $100 is the maximum anyone should request for a dog especially if they are not a licensed breeder. When you adopt a pet from some where you barely pay $100 depending where you go. I also saw a few adds and the dogs were not advertised with shots. Who knows she could have already received the pet with his shots and all paper work. If you pay to get a pet his/her shots then that would be something you would definitely put in the add. Just my thoughts.
Also she cannot get into trouble for posting the information about Lindsey. maybe the cops said she had a case because of the way she told the story--Im certain she said it to benefit herself I mean who wouldn't..RIGHT! All that information was already posted on public sites for others to view otherwise how would we get it. On multiple dog adds it had that phone number and name... All of sudden shes worried about people getting her info when she had it posted in various cities in Oklahoma as well as other states. Come on now your not talking with idiots especially one who a business law degree. The info was not stolen it was copy and pasted from a public site. if she didn't want her info shared why did she post in the public eye in the first place. If I leave my daughters bike out on the street next to the house but not really on our property can I really be mad if someone stole it..NO! it serves me right for having it stolen since I didn't secure it in the first place.
Also she told you today she was going to the authorities.. funny how a few days ago she was supposed to be going and the case was practically in progress because they had told her then she had a case as well. Also the cops dont tell you hey you have a case they have nothing to do with weather or not you prosecute someone by law all the police officers job is to investigate the complaint and then write a report on it. You then pick it up in about 72 hours and you can go see a lawyer if the cops found anything. She should stop listening to the DUPLEX authorities and actually go down to the station. Just because she does not have dogs does not mean they cannot do anything now there are ways to find out. Old emails her confirming payment and receipt of one dog and then turning around and selling the same breed a day or so later for more than what she paid even if the emails have been deleted they can still be recovered. I Would think twice before making this bigger than what it is.
