Do NOT use craigslist! Many animals have been picked up by creeps who torture them. This does not happen as often to shelter dogs as they come with an adoption fee and do interviews etc.

My local human alliance actually sends dogs to the GA shelters quite often, there shelters are sometimes low on dogs in areas! Try calling a shelter and seeing if they have space for him, plus there adoption rules and policies. Some shelters will call you if he is not adopted in a set amount of time. Will he pass all there tests? My shelter runs a few simple tests before trying to find a dog a home, not all shelters do this. Can you foster him through a local shelter? This would allow you to meet his new family and give you the benefit of an easier adoption since he can go to adoption events and be listed on their website.

I think Craigslist can be okay if you screen properly. Several years ago, my aunt rehomed a dog via Craigslist. She is still in contact with the family today. We had an extensive questionnaire and interview process. The dog is in a wonderful home.

Be careful with shelters, even no kill shelters often send their dogs to kill shelters. I'd recommend trying to find a rescue first.

I've had zero luck with shelters around here. Have not received one call back or email response. I had to post an on Craigslist this morning.

Something to think about. If there is someone here that could take him, maybe set up a place for donations to off set the cost of flying to his new home?

Note that fundraising of any type or even links to fundraising is not allowed on here, it would have to be elsewhere.

I think a few members have previously talked about taking him, if he were closer.

Good luck with him, I hope he finds a great home

Hi Jane.

Yeah, I'd hate to see distance be a factor in him finding a loving home. I'd be willing to donate to his flight if its something of interest to anyone.

T - fundraising of any type is completely banned from here - any further talk of donations or fundraising will get this thread or any other thread closed.

We had huge drama and a lot of hurt feelings a couple of weeks back due to donations and fundraising - so it's a complete no go area!!
