Craigslist cat adoption


Melissa Yarborough, 47, desperately wants to find a home for her kitty Scamper, but she says the shelter near her home reserves the right to turn away animals with special needs. “I spoke with them, and they said I can’t adopt just my cat,” she said. “I’ve looked everywhere online, but I’m still at a loss”.


If you’ve ever browsed Craigslist, you’ve likely seen ads offering animals “free to a good home” or for sale via a “re-homing” fee. These ads, commonly seen in the “pets” section of Craigslist, on Facebook community pages, or in the classified section of newspapers, have proved to be extremely dangerous—and in some cases, deadly—to animals. Although Craigslist prohibits the sale of animals on its site, it still allows animals to be given away for free or via a small “re-homing” fee. August 2021/Erie, Pennsylvania: ErieNewsNow.com reported that authorities were “working on more potential charges for an Erie woman accused of hoarding more animals just months after dozens were taken from her home.” A humane society had reportedly taken in 22 animals from the residence, including guinea pigs, kittens, rabbits, and rats. According to the report, the woman “already faces 90 animal cruelty and neglect charges from May. Animal cruelty officers took 46 animals from her home then. Officials at the Humane Society also said they believe [the accused] was getting this new crop of animals from Craigslist and said it is a good reminder to always do your homework when trying to rehome an animal.” A spokesperson for the group reportedly said, “There’s numerous shelters in the area. I know sometimes we’re full, and it may be a few days before we can take [someone] in but look for a shelter because we really do our homework when we look at where we put animals.” The woman was reportedly out of jail on bond and prohibited from keeping any animals as a condition of her bond. GoErie.com reported that when authorities seized 46 animals from the woman’s custody in May, the majority of them had been found “locked two per cage around their own feces and urine, and suffered from medical conditions,” according to an investigator. The report went on to say, “The investigation stemmed from an animal cruelty complaint” in which “two people said they witnessed a woman—believed to be [the accused]—in the backyard stomping a dog in the head.” Reportedly, no one was home when officers arrived but when they knocked on the door and looked inside, they could see a number of animals in cages. The investigator said, “It was just horribly unsanitary conditions that these animals were forced to live in. Many had flea infestations, skin and ear infections, internal parasites, deformities and respiratory infections.”

July 2021/Wolfeboro, New Hampshire: LaconiaDailySun.com reported that authorities had arrested Brendan Elwell on cruelty-to-animals charges “for allegedly killing four kittens and leaving their remains near a walking path.” According to the report, Elwell allegedly admitted to authorities that “he had been killing cats. He confirmed he got them through Craigslist and he started caring for them. But then after drinking alcohol, he decided to kill them.” During an interview with a police staff sergeant, Elwell reportedly “stated there were a lot of videos and pictures on his phone detailing what he did to the cats …. He said the contents on his phone would give the staff sergeant nightmares.” The news report stated that “Elwell said he had been killing a cat per a month for about a year.” A criminal complaint reportedly stated, “The defendant, Brandon Elwell used a knife to cut up and dismember a small kitten then transported some of the remains to the public Bridge Falls Path and intentionally placed the remaining parts of the dead kitten near the path.” Elwell reportedly told someone that “he was the person who placed [dismembered animals] in the park and that he has thrown them at cars while he has driven down the road. Additionally, Mr. Elwell stated he has thrown parts of the cats in the previous owners’ yards.” According to the report, during a search of Elwell’s bedroom, “police found guns, air soft guns, knives, swords, hatchets and a hammer.” The police staff sergeant reportedly stated in an affidavit, “Many of the cutting weapons and the hammer had what appeared to be animal hair on them as well as blood.” Authorities “also found two live young kittens in a plastic container, which they brought to a humane society. Police also found an adult cat and [the police staff sergeant told Elwell’s grandmother—with whom he apparently lived—that] the police would make arrangements for [the animal], as ‘it is likely he may not be able to have access to cats while he is out on bail.’” The criminal case against Elwell was pending. April 2021/Riverside, California: KTLA.com reported that authorities had arrested a man who allegedly tortured a dog whom he said he’d acquired through a Craigslist ad. According to the report, Angel Ramos-Corrales was arrested “on a federal charge alleging that he slit the throat of a dog and posted a video of the dying puppy on Snapchat.” At his home, police “found him with ‘fresh blood stains’ on his clothes and fresh cut wounds on his hand, according [to a U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California] news release. Officers also found the severely injured dog [named Canelo] in the home, lying on a bed, along with blood spatters in both the bedroom and bathroom.” Animal control officers “removed the ‘barely alive dog,’ the news release states. A veterinarian then had to euthanize Canelo after determining the pup had fractured bones in his head and chest, officials said.” Ramos-Corrales reportedly “told FBI agents during questioning that he bought Canelo as a small puppy from a Craigslist posting several months earlier.” The case was ongoing.
