General

How does this website work?

Petclassfieds.com brings together sellers and buyers. Sellers can create free classified ads for which they are responsible. Petclassifieds.com acts as a bulletin board and does not guarantee the completeness and accuracy of the information provided by sellers and buyers.

Interested parties can contact the sellers via the information provided on each ad.

If seller and buyer have come to an agreement, always use caution, meet in a safe place, such as in front of a police station. Never pay money in advance to someone you do not know.

To protect buyers, we rely on your help. In case of fraud attempts by a seller, please send your evidence to [email protected] so that we can delete the corresponding ad and block the seller.

Please also send your evidence to [email protected] in case of fraud attempts by a buyer through our messaging system so that we can block the buyer and protect sellers.
