Six months later, dozens of other pet bloggers have supported the cause and more than 100,000 people have signed the petition on

Here are some ways to let eBay know you don't agree with selling animals online:
  1. Twitter: Hey @eBay: 100,000+ people oppose pet sales on @eBayClassifieds. Help #endpuppymills
  2. Facebook: Post a comment on eBay's Facebook page, letting them know you don't support pet sales on eBay Classifieds.
