Safe Shopping

Pets:

Animals are living creatures and should be treated with respect and cared for properly. Always do your research before committing to owning a pet. If you are not sure or in any doubt about your ability to provide proper care for any animal you should not consider acquiring a pet via our classified adverts nor any other source. Talk to a pet professional before committing to providing a home for any animal.

General:

Do not send money using wire-transfers. This payment method is often hard to trace and do not offer refunds if your item is not genuine or not received.

Always meet the seller/buyer in a public place and show vigilance with regards carrying cash or high-value items with you.

Research the seller

You should always look for signs that you person or company from where you source your items online is reputable. With regards pets, always ask to see a baby animal's parents where possible and speak to others who have been provided with a pet animal from the person or company.

Remember: If you are in any doubt, don't!
