Hi everyone:

I just rejected a post from a member about this subject. However,
after giving it some additional thought I decided to look into it a
bit further and will now post it. If any of you are looking to find
homes for your pets, please read below. I did go to
www.snopes.com,
a web site that confirms if something is an urban legend, and the
search I did provided no results. I also went to www.google.com and
put his name in and there was an abundance of information about this
creep.

If anyone in the group feels that this is "spam" please stop reading
it right now and delete it. Please, don't write to me as we have
had many people offer pets on the site and feel that this subject is
worth sending out to the group.

There is a recent photo of Shon Rahrig

(8/30/06):

Convicted animal abuser Shon Rahrig has moved to Long Beach. He uses
craigslist to find animals to torture, both posting and answering
ads. He favors calico cats but will also take kittens, adult cats,
puppies and older dogs instead. He tends to focus on 'free to good
home' ads so he can get free victims. He is believed to post ads
full of manipulative lies. In addition to craigslist he attends
adoption events and shelters and may use newspaper and bulletin
board ads so please warn non-craigslist people you know.

His acts of torture are extremely disturbing. He has been doing this
for years and moves to new locations (even across the country) when
the locals learn too much. In addition to jail and probation his
sentence for torturing kittens in Ohio in 1999 included the decision
that he could never again own living things and had to attend
mandatory counseling. Instead he skipped town and moved to another
state where police, neighbors, shelters and animal control did not
know him! This was after pleading guilty (in order to avoid
the publicity a trial would have brought him, which would have
hindered him when he sought more victims).

NOTE: following sentence describes some of his gruesome crimes so
you may wish to skip ahead.

Among other terrible acts he takes kittens and pokes their eyes out,
breaks their bones and cuts off their feet. He claims he is sane and
has offered no justification for his actions. Of course there is
none, but he is rational and aware enough that the court agreed he
is sane.

HE GETS HIS VICTIMS ON CRAIGSLIST. DO NOT GIVE OR SELL HIM ANIMALS.
CALL ANIMAL CONTROL IF YOU ENCOUNTER HIM. WARN OTHERS.

As of April 2006 he was known to live at:
5901 East Ocean Blvd, Unit D
Long Beach, CA 90803

He has set up a dog walking service at the Long Beach dog park, he
has been getting ref. and dogs from the other dog walkers at the dog
park. Maybe it be best to leave your dogs in your own care until
they catch the creep!

Shon Rahrig was spotted at an adoption event in the area. Keep in
mind that a person who will repeatedly move to knew states in order
to continue torturing animals will likely go to any length to
acquire victims!


He could show up anywhere. He has lived in a number of cities in
California and elsewhere, including down in San Diego, so he is
familiar with a range of places. Don't assume you won't encounter
him! He used to have a real estate license and company and lived on
Sunset Cliffs Blvd in San Diego so it is familiar territory for him.
His license expired last year but may have been renewed,
this is in or around OC, LB, SD.

cats and leaving them outside.....
