Petfinder's been notified... again.
|Yes! And, I have pointed this out before as well. It is specifically with this All God's creatures. They have had mixed OES/poodles puppies before as well.... for sale..... |
I think it is wrong unless someone here can defend what they are doing? It looks like selling puppies to me!
|Are these puppies being bred deliberately to sell on petfinder? If so, it seems to contravene the purpose of petfinder.|
|Yup, Shari. We've discussed this here in the past. |

I don't know what they're doing, David. I only know that it harms rescue in general. Not
sure why they're allowed to continue to list dogs on Petfinder if they also sell them on
This is a site where you can seek transport services. Read the first listing on the Arabian-
|Cheers for Petfinder |
They have been quick to respond and the OES puppies have been removed.
To misuse Petfinder this way is really offensive to anyone who does rescue and
charges a reasonable rehoming fee.

|Spoke too soon... they're back up. |
I don't know if it was a Petfinder glitch or if they added them again.
I saw that too Jade.
|They weren't there when I clicked on the link either, they probably put them back up.|
|Thanks, Jade. I appreciate the confirmation.|
|they are backup|
|Thanks so much for checking. |
Petfinder wrote again... the listings are no longer appearing and they're "investigating the matter".
Hoping this nonsense will stop.
|Found this post and have to add, no the nonsense has not stopped.|

You guys posted this in July 2012. Now Micah Thompson is still going strong as we begin 2013.
Her puppies are posted everywhere and people are still falling for the "rescue" blather.
These sheepadoodle puppies were on Petfinder and were quickly pulled. All I know is her
story keeps changing on why all these dogs are for sale to fund her "rescue" operation.
If you read the shipping site (every transaction) you will see she even tried to "trade" some
shipper any of her teacup puppies for transport of another animal.
I am pissed only because it is people like this that damage real rescues! If she wants to sell
her poor mill pups, and people are stupid enough to buy, that's one thing. But fronting as a
rescue has to stop.
The Pony is even for sale. I don't get it...if she really wants to help find homes for animals,
why breed more to sell? Money that's why. It's disgraceful and I pray for the animals in her
|Thanks for letting us know. Hopefully people will Google for this before they buy. But they won't.|
|I had also written Petfinder about this group on February 12, 2009 and January 17, 2012. In July 2012, I sent screen shots of the OES puppies pictured on Petfinder that were also being sold on Puppyfind for $1,000. They even used the same photographs. And I included the UShip links... believe me, I read through them all. |
I apologize for never updating this. Toward the end of July I was trying to save my own dog and I'm sure due to privacy reasons, I was never told the outcome of this...
Petfinder wrote on July 2, 2012 that they were "investigating the matter". All God's Creatures (the one in Weatherford, TX) no longer has any pets listed on Petfinder at their previous website addresses. Below are the two links to All God's Creatures adoptable pets and those already adopted...

But I've seen pets listed elsewhere since. You'll note another name in the email address that is shown on the following WayBack Machine archived Petfinder page...

All I can say is that if dogs/cats for sale are also showing up on any rescue sites, write to the rescue site and provide proof.
|Started seeing ad's in local venues for sheepiedoodles from these people shortly after arriving in Tx. They contained the same rescue BS. I met a couple of her pups that ultimately ended up in legitimate rescue or were free to good homes. Great dogs but not worth $1,000.|
|Anyone who doesn't believe that Petfinder.com is selling dogs has mush for brains. The same goes for Craigs List. Breeders both legit and backyard families trying to make a buck off their family pets are constantly selling. They hide behind the work "Re-Home". That word should only be allowed for "FREE" placements. |

|Susan, if you've found dogs being sold on Petfinder, please take |
time to report the group to Petfinder and provide them with proof.
PUPPYfind is a dog/puppy selling site... and dogs are also sold on Craigslist.
But PETfinder is for rescues, shelters and pounds to rehome dogs that didn't
have the support of responsible breeders...
