Craigs List pets section

Craigs list is a popular website to buy, sell and trade. Everyday I visit the pets section to browse, everyday I see people complaining about their post being flagged off, and others claiming they flag post because of the cl rules which states: no pet sales or breeding please -- rehoming with small adoption fee OK ] [ please take discussions to pets forum ] [ PERSONAL SAFETY TIPS ] [ AVOIDING SCAMS & FRAUD ] [success story?] Ok. But heres what I always found odd breeders sell @ what from $80-$2000 a pup? shelters "adopt" out at what? $75-$200? maybe higher? So called "pure breed rescues" adopt out at $100-$500 That I have seen , pets on cl "rehome" at the same prices anywhere from free to $500. its ok for a ""rescue"" group to want 200$ but its NOT ok for you to ""rehome"" @ $200 They even complain if you post a pet for "free" Keep in mind The words rehome , adopt and sell, While taking this poll...
