We’ve all heard more devastating stories of animals being dumped than we can count. And scarier yet is the reality that more and more people have turned to the internet in order to “get rid of” their pets for one reason or another. When you post your cat or dog online to try to re-home them, you never know who is going to answer that ad…

One Craigslist user from Arkansas was sick and tired of seeing people try to take “the easy way out” by giving away or selling their pets to strangers online. So, she took matters into her own hands, and posted an epic rant inspired by those who use the site to ditch their pets.

According to Little Things, this is what it said:

This is my dog…

…I have had her for six years. She has been frustrating and infuriating at times. She has cost me money I wanted to spend on other things. She has been inconvenient at times. I’ve had to arrange my life with her in mind. I wouldn’t trade any of it for anything in the world, because I love her and she brings me joy. Now, to get to the point of this post. I want to tell you about something amazing that I did. I MOVED. I moved three times actually. Amazingly, I KEPT MY F***ING DOG! Can you imagine? Did you know someone can move and still keep their dog? What an amazing concept, isn’t it? Oh, I also got married, had a baby, and changed jobs, AND STILL MANAGED TO KEEP MY DOG! Am I the only human being alive who’s been able to do this? See that little cat next [to] my dog in the picture, well we just found out she has AIDS, yes, feline AIDS. She will require expensive medicine for the rest of her short life. Guess what? I’M KEEPING THE F***ING CAT TOO. I’m not going to dump her off on Craigslist to assuage some mild hint of guilt I feel because I’m too lazy, weak and irresponsible to fulfill a commitment I made to a living, loving animal. To all you who do otherwise, F*** YOU! I hope your spouse leaves you, penniless and alone. May God keep you, though you don’t deserve it.”

Wow, she didn’t hold back! This no-sugarcoating ad really makes an impression, doesn’t it? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
