It doesn't happen often that online ads for pets find their way to the right people - and it's most certainly a terrible idea to sell an animal on Craigslist. But this ad managed to get to the best people possible.
"Somebody sent me a link with two little white puppies being sold on Craigslist," Jackie O'Sullivan, cofounder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, tells The Dodo. "So I reached out to the [seller] to see if we could take them."
"He said we could take them both for $350."
O'Sullivan scrambled to find someone who could pick up the siblings.
"I could tell they were not in good shape," she notes.
But by the time, a volunteer from Rescue Dogs Rock NYC arrived at the seller's home, there was only one puppy left. Sugarplum.
