Note about pet adoptions
Please read if you’re the type that forwards emails all over the place…
Only pets from Hoboken and adjacent towns!
Hoboken411 prides itself in having a very strong success rate for finding (legitimate) dogs and cats new homes!
And believe it or not, I get get multiple emails weekly – from readers that received a “save this sad puppy from being euthanized!!!” email, and forward to me for posting on Hoboken411. Seriously like three or four unique animals per week! Nearly all of these “sad animals” are usually listed within a two hour radius of Hoboken. However, pretty much 99% are either hoaxes – or have long been adopted. Email spammers love inserting a script that puts a geographical location into the body of the text – to make it “seem” local.
411 says NO to lame hoaxes or outdated info!
For that very reason, I developed a policy a long time ago that restricts the animals in need of a home to Hoboken or the immediate area. Additionally, please observe the following rules when forwarding pet adoption emails to Hoboken411:
- Like I said, Hoboken is preferred – even better – from trusted people that I know personally.
- Either be in possession of said pet, or personally know the person in possession of that pet. Provide phone number and/or location for verification purposes.
- If you still feel the need to send it, even out of guilt – please check snopes.com – there’s a good chance it might be on there already.
I know you have it in your heart to find these super-cute animals a home – but please use common sense, and don’t assume each email you receive is legitimate.
