This Is No Joke: “Pet Flipping” Is Stealing Dogs to Sell Them

Pet flipping might have an innocuous name, but it’s a incredibly evil practice. Pet flipping occurs when a criminal acquires a pet, either through theft or claiming to be the pet parent of missing pets seen in “pet found” ads, and then quickly sells the animal for a profit. Flippers often target purebred dogs, because the resale value reaches into the thousands of dollars, but they’ll take any dogs.

Dogs who are stolen but aren’t flipped quickly often live in terrible conditions.
