Warning on Pet Adoption Scams

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
recently issued a warning regarding online frauds targeting people interested in
adopting companion animals from locations outside of the U.S. Many of these
internet scams offer the purebred animals at no cost, as long as the prospective
pet parents agree to pay for the shipping expenses.

Typically, once the prospect pays the freight
costs, an extra charge will be claimed for additional vaccinations, necessary
for the companion animal to enter the U.S. legally. In some cases, not only is
the pet never delivered, he or she never existed in the first place! The CDC
urges caution when dealing with overseas pet adoptions. It is always best to
deal with recommended sources for purebred animals. If you don’t know who
to ask, check with your veterinarian, groomer or pet sitter for reliable
breeders.
