Pet Shipping and Pet adoption Internationally
For the last few years I have warned of a popular Internet scam, pay shipping and get a pup for free. First off it is a wonder to me why anyone would go out of the United States to adopt a pet, it really is ridiculous, when you consider the amount of pets available for adoption here with in the U.S. I have written blogs, done radio interviews and warned many people who contact us about this fallacy, yet every day I still get the same email, and phone calls about adopting pets from Cameroon, Africa and a few other remote places. Let me set the record straight for all who read this post. There is no way to ship a pet for under one thousand dollars from another country to the U.S. and it will almost always cost even more than that, people who claim to be missionaries and good Christians that suddenly have to get rid of a pure bred expensive puppy, do not exist, they are crooks. You should never send a money order to anyone who you have not met in person, or are able to confirm the legitimacy of the claims they make! These crooks go to any length to dupe you, they use real legitimate companies information to trick you, always go directly to the source that they claim will be handling the delivery of a pet to you, never just take someone at their word. Feel free to contact us at our pet shipping company web site, or by phone, if you ever are unsure about anything involving the transportation of a pet, you will be glad that you did! I have seen people loose thousands of dollars from this scam, please always make sure to think, and do your homework before sending anyone any type of check or money period. Once you lose this money it is gone, these people are not Americans, or in America, and not much can be done to get your money back. The best defence against these crooks is to simply stay away from this scam, please use common sense, when pet searching.
