Pets posting policies

  • ✔ 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.
  • ✔ Ads posted in the “Pets” section may not be listed as FREE except it is posted in the "Pets for adoption" category.
  • ✔ PetsPlace does not allow the sale of puppies and kittens under 8 weeks old. Date of birth  for these animals must be stated in the description. 
  • ✔ 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.

Any dog that is a mixed-breed of these breeds, and has the characteristics substantially similar to pitbulls.
