Please charge at least a $100.00 Re-homing "REASONABLE" fee per dog. This does not guarantee that your dog will be safe but it is better then not charging anything at all or too small of a fee.
Why is this reasonable fee so important not to be reduced??? You see the dog fighters will look for the "free" or "low cost dogs" first as opposed to having to pay for the dog. Reason being they do not plan on keeping the animal alive. Dog fighters will even send out "Posers" women with a child or kids posing as people having the dogs best interest at heart. Could this fee be reduced with a smile??? NOOOO!!!
The weaker dogs will be used as pitbull bait. The stronger dogs will be used for fighting. Bait dogs can also be any dogs not just pitbulls. They even like to use "ANY FREE OR LOW COST BREED" of "DEFENSELESS" puppies as bait dogs OR ANY ANIMAL that they can get their hands on just to give the pitbulls the taste of blood really cruel and "IN-HUMAN" to say the least. Fighting pitbulls can also be mixed pitbull dogs so don't assume they are only looking for purebred fighting pitbull dogs. (As a matter of fact any breed of dog that shows signs of aggression/fighting back to save their life will be used.)
Free dogs may also go to people that can not afford proper vet care so that is ill advised as well.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DO A HOME VISIT FIRST BEFORE SAYING YES. DO THEY HAVE A CLOSED-OFF SECURED 6 FT FENCE, ETC? YOU NEED TO SEE THE CONDITIONS IN WHICH YOUR DOG WILL BE LIVING. YOU MAY ALSO GET A NOTARIZED SIGNED AGREEMENT OF VISITING RIGHTS IF YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW A NOTARY THAT WOULD DO THIS FOR YOU WHEN YOU MAKE YOUR DECISION. (DON'T MAKE YOUR SELF FEEL FUNNY PUTTING YOUR SELF ON THE SPOT THAT SECOND.) BEFORE EVEN GOING TELL THE PERSON/FAMILY YOU WILL NOT BE MAKING THE DECISION ON THAT DAY AND WILL LET THEM KNOW BY PHONE THE FOLLOWING DAY WHAT YOUR ANSWER IS GOING TO BE. YOU SHOULD NOT CARE WHAT THE PEOPLE THINK IF THEY DIS-AGREE WITH THIS!!! THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THE WELL BEING OF YOUR INNOCENT DOG THAT NEEDS YOU TO DO THIS. IT WOULD BE NICE TO OFFER TO TAKE THE DOG BACK IF IT DOESN'T WORK OUT FOR ANY REASONS IF THAT IS EVEN POSSIBLE TO DO. NO ONE CAN EVER GUARANTEE SAFETY ALTHOUGH WE CAN DO OUR BEST TO TRY TO DO THE RIGHT THING.
