Thankyou for visiting the Pets4Homes free online pet classifieds website. We are the UK's most popular UK classfieds website for various kinds of Pets including Cats, Dogs, Rabbits and Horses to name a few. We are also totally free to use.
The Pets4Homes website was started in May 2005 by Mark Singleton and has quickly grown to become the UKs leading free dedicated pet advertising site. In 2018, the Pets4Homes website received 32 Million unique users viewing 880 Million pages.
The Pets4Homes.co.uk website is privately owned and operated by Pet Media Ltd ( http://www.petmedia.co.uk )
The Pets4Homes website provides a totally free to use advertising platform for private individuals, responsible breeders and rescue centers to list their adverts on. Potential buyers or adopters of pets can use the website to make initial contact with the advertisers. We also provide information and advice for potential pet owners.
Yes, we manually approve the majority of adverts that are placed on our Pets4Homes website. However we do not visit any of the advertisers homes or do any checks on the advertisers, therefore, it is the buyers responsibility to make any necessary checks on the advertisers before buying or adopting a pet. We also rely on our website users who visit the pets to report any suspicious advertisers.
Yes, we do our best to prevent puppy farmers from trying to use our website. We do this by monitoring the number of adverts we allow each advertiser to place, and check advertisers local authority breeders licenses to make sure they are valid. Just because a breeder has a valid council license to breed dogs, does not mean we will automatically allow them to use our service. If we believe a breeder is a large commercial breeder and not looking after their dogs, we will prevent them from using our website. We also work closely with local councils and animal welfare organisations like "C.A.R.I.A.D" to prevent known puppy farmers from using our website. Our Pets4Homes.co.uk website was setup for pet owners, responsible hobby breeders and rescue centers to use, we therefore do our best to stop irresponsible people from abusing our free service.
We have a list of standards we have created that we stick to when approving or banning adverts. You can read them by clicking here. We also follow the Pet Advertising Advisory Groups (PAAGS's) minimum standards.
