eBay classifieds provides puppy mills and backyard breeders an online marketplace to carry out their unethical sales, yet eBay claims there are policies in place to protect animals and buyers. Because a federal law loophole requires no USDA regulation for online animal sales, this promise is impossible for eBay to uphold.
So how can you help?
First, sign the change.org petition urging ebay to stop these sales.
Then, take a minute to Tweet @eBay or write via snail mail
(e-Bay, Inc, 2145 Hamilton Ave, San Jose, California 95125) and encourage them to change their ways.
And of course - encourage your friends and family to always adopt, never buy!
