Got this as a PETFINDER response to a pair of ferrets and their cage up for adoption. The adoption fee for the ferret nation, both fully vetted ferrets and their supplies is $150. The response from this man (And yes, I am listing name and email address because this needs to be passed on to other rescue groups in the area)

I will give you $25 for it all.

----------------------------------------------------
Normally I ignore stupid emails like that, but I decided this time to respond and I said.

Hello-

Our adoption fees are non-negotionable. We are charged with finding excellent homes for these animals, and we feel that if someone has a problem with a minimal adoption fee of $150 for all supplies and the kids, they will not be interested in spending much larger ammounts on good food, care, and vet bills in the future. If you do have interest in one of our animals, please fill out an adoption application available at www.adoptcarol ina.com and someone may contact you.

---------------------------------------------------

Of course, I wouldn't approve him, first impressions are key and all, but I was trying to be friendly. This is what I got....

hey ferrets are illegal any ways on her!
or didn't you get the memo.
Good luck selling that any ways.

-----------------------------------------------------

Sooooo needless to say added to the DO NOT ADOPT OR GO ANYWHERE NEAR WITH A 10 FOOT POLE list. (And no, ferrets are not illegal in NC, or to have on petfinder.) OMG the nerve of some people!!!!! I cant believe how stupid, cruel, ignorant and stupid stupid stupid people can be. Did I mention stupid?!

GAAAAAAAAAHHHH HHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow--- google this guys name. He's BAD BAD NEWS.

http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62298&page=1&pp=5
 
There's just one section I found with about 200 complaints on him.

He apparently has a bunch of alias' but besides what he has been trying to do here, he is also a fraud/thief in the reptile buisness, AND he claims to be a reptile rescue. Time for me to get to work and hunt him down.

It chills me to the bone to have to realize that there are people out there like that. I know people have large reptiles. I know they have to be fed. I feel bad enough for the rats and rabbits. But ferrest, puppies (sorry - I meant "puppys") and kittens?Huh I am sick...

I'm sure he said Puppies and Kitten just to be a pr*ck.  But can someone please find him and then feed HIM to a snake?  I think that's only fitting.  Angry

Hi,

While i don't doubt this happens, and from reading the link o this particular low life excuse for a human!!

Try not to get to worked up over an e-mail reply!! Some people type these things just to get a rise from the reader!! Obviously it worked in this case!! again I am not saying this guy isn't scum, I am just pointing out that just because it is typed doesn't "necessarily" mean it is happening.

Just my thoughts!!

I don't really doubt for a second that this guy would answer ads for puppies and kittens that were free or nearly free.

He may have done it just to be an A$$, thats what I am hoping, but someone stupid enough to say that to a rescue deserves to have h*ll rained down on him. My email was flooded by him with horrible comments and childish retorts.

This was in response to me saying he was denied and added to the DO NOT ADOPT list.

" BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH.
And i have no idea what you are talking about.!
You are a fool lame to the core.
So keep on guessing .
Hey you never know who buys your ferrets!! "

And also:

"FERRETS ARE FOOD NOT FRIEND!!!!!!! "

And:

" And if you had a license and was real rescu you would be known by someone!!
Every one i ask about you doesnt know you!!
So who are you again??? And where did you get your license--Oh i;m sorry at WALMART!!!
Tell whom ever you want!! "

I'm really glad no one in his "circle" knows me. I wouldn't want my name even in their mouth. I love that he said tell whom ever I want- I've already reported him to animal control and if he is feeding puppies or kittens it IS abuse, so they will be sending an officer over to check. Nothing will come out of it im sure, but maybe he will learn to take what he says on the internet more seriously. This morning I sent his info out to the 364 other rescuers that I am networked with, with urgency to cross post. Sorry if some of you get it in your box, but I'd like to get this guy completely away from animals.

And feeding puppies and kittens does happen, a lot- There have been multiple cases here in NC where they both tell the people "Hey, let me just take the whole litter of your hands for my snakes" or they pretend to "adopt" two or three free puppies from a couple litters at a time. Besides the creulty to the puppies/kittens/ferrets etc, its also really bad for the snake. Prey animals are built entirely different then predator items.

BLAH BLAH BLAH and "lame to the core"?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAH AHA

What is he, like 13?

Oh, I would love to be one of the flies around his "home" when animal control comes knocking! I hope they confiscate all his reptiles and find something to charge him with!!

Ewwww, what a sicko!  Angry
And I don't doubt for a second that he's doing shady business on the down lo.
It is not uncommen for uncouth reptile folks to feed out whatever they can get their hands on to their snakes, esp. the large pythons/constrictors.  And the best place to do this is on craigslist where people often give away or have very small fees for animals.

Teaches people to really research who they are "adopting" their animals out to.

That makes me sick!  I read it to my husband and he didn't even believe it.  But having originated from a rural area where spaying and neutering hasn't/hadn't quite hit home yet and free puppies and kittens are/were a dime a dozen, I can imagine it.  Jerk.
