Today's Tip – missing pets sometimes turn up for sale on Craigslist

This week, a Colorado woman looking for her lost dog found the dog for sale on Craigslist. This is a growing phenomenon, and the same thing has happened all across the country, including Ohio. The practice is known as “dog flipping.” Found pets, or sometimes stolen pets, are advertised for a rehoming fee by someone claiming to be the owner.

One of the first places you should look when you lose a pet is in the pet ads on your local Craigslist.

The Cleveland Pets Examiner runs a Lost & Found Friday column each week. Check the list every Friday here in the Cleveland Pets column and share it with others who you think may be able to help or network the information.
