R.I.P Kiya( Puppy Doe)! Shame on you Craigslist!
Does this make you sick? Is this hard to read? The vet that conducted the necropsy said this was the very worst case of abuse she had ever seen.
Craigslist has received pressure in the past from animal lovers to ban these free listings. While there may be many people looking to add a pet to their home there are many looking to cause them harm. Craigslist has now received increasing pressure to ban these adds because of the horrible case of Puppy Doe. There are many petitions being circulated and this case has received media attention from the Boston, MA area news outlets. This case needs to be made nationwide through mass media. If Craigslist won't change then the public needs to be aware before they decide to discard one of their family members for free thinking they are going to a loving family.
Kiya's former owner is now working with authorities to try to find the person that had "adopted" Kiya from her. I wonder what would have happened to Kiya had she not been given away for free on Craigslist? Would she be a happy, loved dog? Would she still be alive and well?
Rest in peace Kiya. May your horrible death not be in vain. May your end be the beginning of the end to these listings and the start to educating the public on the dangers that are out there for these animals.
