Terms of Use

Updated: May 12th, 2018

The Pets category is to help people find good, safe and caring homes for their pets.

The Animal Pedigree Act makes it a federal offense to sell an animal of a recognized breed as, purebred, registered, or eligible to be registered if it is not. 

The term "purebred" is a confirmation of genetic background and adherence to breed characteristics, in accordance with the requirements of the Act and the by-laws of the authorized breed association. When posting your ad, this means that you can only advertise your animal as purebred if it applies to this definition.

The term "registered" is confirmation that all the rules of eligibility of the authorized breed association in Canada have been met.

If an animal of a recognized breed is sold as purebred, registered or eligible to be registered, the seller is obligated to provide a duly transferred certificate of registration to the buyer not later than six months after the sale.

PetPost does not permit any type of Breeding service (such as stud services) for any domestic pets.

It is important to us that everyone who adopts an animal can afford the care of the animal, and that they are committed to providing a safe and responsible environment to any animal they take in. Ads posted in the Pets section may not be listed as Free.

PetPost does not permit ads that indicate signs of or encouraging animal cruelty. We will listen very closely to our community for any reports of suspected cases of illegal practices or animal cruelty. Accounts may be suspended if the complaint is deemed legitimate. Thereafter, if appropriate documentation (e.g., health inspection) is not provided within 3 weeks, PetPost reserves the right to ban the account. 

PetPost prohibits the sale of puppies and kittens under 8 weeks old. Date of birth for these animals must be clearly stated in the ad. 

Please do not post for sale any animals that are on the endangered species list, Environment Canada CITES website, are wild animals, or animals that are not permitted to be owned or sold in any city in which the ad is being posted or could be considered dangerous to others. 

PetPost is not intended to facilitate uncontrolled breeding or irresponsible commercial pet trading. For this reason, dog breeders are permitted to post a maximum of three (3) breeds only on PetPost (including mixed breeds). Posting more than three, even if only three are advertised on the site at one time, is not permitted. 

PetPost does not allow the sale of dogs or cats by Pet Stores. All other animals however are acceptable.

In the province of New Brunswick, all kennels, shelters and boarding facilities must have a valid Pet Establishment License. The NBSPCA defines a kennel as premises where dogs are bred or boarded for consideration. This license number must be included in all PetPost ads from a breeder, shelter or boarding facility within New Brunswick.  For more information about this regulation, please see the NBSPCA page here.


PetPost does not allow any ads that offer shipment of animals. Animals may only be sold locally so that the transactions can occur in person.
