Warning: re-homing fees not going to animal welfare

Letter: Dori Dixon, Mary Ann Davidson Animal Ark

Animal Ark is aware that dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are being offered for sale on Craig’s List, Facebook and other social sites for a “re-homing fee” of up to $150. These sellers are also selling pets in parking lots in Lewiston and surrounding areas. They are telling potential buyers the re-homing fee goes to Animal Ark, Helping Hands and other animal welfare organizations. This is not true!

Animal Ark is in no way associated with these sellers. Animal Ark does not advertise on any social media sites and never uses the term re-homing fee. We do not sell animals. We ask for tax deductible donations from adoptive families. These donations go to the vet clinic to help pay for shots, spaying/neutering of the next pet that comes into our care.

Of great concern to Animal Ark is where and how these sellers are finding pets to sell. We want all of you to be aware of these sellers and hope you will help us stop them from selling these innocent pets for a re-homing fee.
