Gum Tree adverts for Free Cats

Post by Patricia Jones » Wed Mar 25, 2015 2:53 pm

I run a small Facebook group to contact anyone who is posting their cat for free on the pages of Gum Tree. I would like to invite anyone who is on Facebook to join me.
Admin puts all the days cat offers on our page.
The idea is to contact the advertiser on the email link they provide on the Gum Tree advert.(You can opt not to receive a reply if you wish, they don't get to see your email address)
Ask them politely to remove the advert , mention the likelihood of dog fighters using cats for bait, and advise on a reputable rescue. Lists of rescues are slowly being built up by the admin.
To join you need to be "Friends" with me on Facebook because I have made the group secret in order not to get hassle . I am looking for ten or so people to make an impact.
The group I run for the Dogs has managed to get well over 300 adverts removed in under 4 weeks.
this is my link , if you wish to help please send me a friends request.
