What I believe is that the person who adopted the pet from Cerz wasn't genuinely seeking a pet, but to get animals for free/cheaply and proceeded to sell them.

I think this is often difficult to filter especially for a group like Cerz that is rescuing and rehoming so many pets each week.

It might help reduce the problem if the rescuers visited the adopter's house prior to the adoption, and created a contract that prohibits the adopter from selling it else the rescuer reserves the right to take it back immediately, as well as stating that they would pay the adopter surprise visits a few weeks down the road. Of course, such procedures require more time and effort, and might not be an easy task to undertake.

Also, I think that for pedigree dogs especially young ones, an adoption fee should be imposed to ensure more genuine adopters.

as i believe cerz also charge an adoption fee for 300 if not mistaken...but if anyone hav contact of cerz pls inform and rescue this dog back....and i suggest cerz not to give back the adoption fee money...
this is such a shame especially to sincere adopter out ther...i am sure this will affect the reputation of adopters....i think by setting up a grp of ppl lik wat dog is my buddy said may be able to help but still we don hav the power to do much but keep an open eye....maybe some one will go on disguise and call this raymond fella and check it out....but i do hope cerz can do it as he or she knows the dog better than anyone of us....
i will also don mind volunteer myself for the area of subang jaya (cos i live ther)...

I agree with dog is my buddy. There are bound to be black sheeps everywhere, but if we make the procedure too tough or troublesome, it might deter away a lot of genuine adopters.

So in the end, what I believe matters most is that as many dogs as possible get a chance to be rehomed. I'm sure the happy and successful ones far outweigh the unlucky ones.

In fact, if you think of it, the "unluckly" dogs aren't really that unlucky. Once they get re-sold, they will still likely get a proper home in the end, right?

mw_pon, great news!

I hope the person doing this reads this post sometime down the road.

Andy and Dog is my buddy,

Yeah, my sentiments as well. In the end, the person who bought the dog will provide a good hom as well. So, if the seller gets the dog a good home, I think in the end, that's what matters most.

Whoa... if that is the case... adopt for free and resale again... damn cilaka wei... really damn cilaka la that fellow. Gimme his address... I go rescue the doggie...

Yep... it's hard to filter out people like this. All we can do is to interview the potential adopters and make sure that this kinda things don't happen.

This is what I suggest and we'll likely install it into Petfinder.my later.

Whenever you have a pet adopted, key into the pet profile who adopted the pet. The section when you close a pet adoption will contain the adopter's:

Name
Address
Phone
IC
and possibly Photo.

And if we later found abuse by the adopter, their profile will be flagged in PetFinder.my and placed in the Abuse List. That way, eventually we can check up on a possible adopter to see if they have been flagged before or not.

If the abuse is bad, we'll even post it on the Hall Of Shame.

Roy,
Cool down, it was 10000:1 case. They only target for young pure breeds, we still have many dog lover plan for adopt homeless dog. We won't make they difficult or nightmare. They might think "What the hell so hard to get homeless dog! I better buy from pet shop mix breed rm200-300" you can see the affect.

Yeah... I suppose... it's just that it's like spitting at our hard work. I agree with Ezer's plan....

having a track system for the adopters and putting them in the hall of shame (or worse) if they abuse...

They can't lie about it because when they collect their animals, the rescuers needs to see their IC and key in their info in the pet profile so that it can be stored permanently... We'll see..

Raymond, I am glad the issue has been resolved. Adopting the dog involves your commitment to take good care of him for life, and you should not give him away for such trivial reasons.

If problems recur, I hope you will still take up the responsibility of Truffles, or at least get in touch with Carnea again and request assistance from her.

Raymond, thanks for getting back to us about this misunderstanding. I hope you resolve your issues with your girlfriend.. :)

Pets are really our companion for life!

And since this issue has been resolved, I am moving this thread out of the Hall Of Shame and into the Success Stories forum because, well, we have successfully resolved this issue after all and thanks to Raymond's quick response to this problem.
