Pet Fee's on Craig's List sign now

Dear Craig's List,
There seems to be quite a bit of dissention in the Seattle/ Tacoma Community Pets section. Your Terms Of Use say's "No Sales or Breeding / Breeders,. Small Adoption or re-homing fee OK ".

Since you have not set an amount that you consider to be a " Small fee " in your TOU, there is allot of Flagging and anger being caused. People are putting up their litters of puppies and kittens under the pretence of " re-homing " as young as 8 -12 week old animals with fee's of $200.00-600.00 each. Also Backyard Breeders and re-sellers are using your forum to "Re_Home" their animals. This in most peoples minds is SELLING Animals . Not re-homing.

In order to possibly solve this " Flag" war. We would petition that you Set Sections in the Community pets. Such As , Free Pets , $100 and under, $100-$150 and so on . Also it would be helpful to have different sections for Cats, Dogs, Horses/ Livestock, Reptiles, Small Furry Animals, Birds. and then accessories / cages section, Etc. Also a Special Humane Society or Rescue area would be helpful to help the many animals that are on Deaths Row in the Animal shelters.

Most Important is that you set a definition of " SMALL Adoption or re-homing fee".

1) Such as if the "Re-Homing fee is over what a rescue or Humane Society would charge for a spayed/neutered, all shots, de-wormed, de-fled , Temperament Tested Animal would cost . Then it is not considered a " Small Fee " and is Prohibited as Selling an Animal.

2) If a person is "re-homing a Litter of pups or kittens and asking $150-$600 , it is considered Prohibited as Selling and or Breeding/ Breeders.

I am sure the Seattle/ Tacoma Area isn't the only area of Craig's List that is having this Pet Selling VS Re-Homing Problem . I am sure that your Site will be much more productive in the purpose you have intended it to be if this matter was settled by your setting an amount and possibly sections too .

    A re-homing fee is one thing, but a lot of people are just selling their pets.

    rehoming means finding a home, the fee should be well under $100, you can't expect to get back what you put into a "friend" but want a safe hom.

    how can you charge a re-homing fee, when you are saying you cannot take care of your dog. I dont understand making someone pay to take your dog off your hands. Making money off of a bad decision is wrong! Think of the animal and the future owners saving y
