Can you sell pets on Craigslist?

Just found this out after I signed up for an account. Does anyone know a good way to sell without paying for a classified ad? I prefer to use the internet, but open to any suggestions.
Thanks

  • hoobly.com is a GREAT way to sell animals online. I have used this site to sell puppies, and it is free to use. hoobly.com is very easy to use. I've breed Shih Tzus in the past, and have sold all of them using hoobly.com

  • That's more for adoptions isn't it?
    Someone on yahoo answers suggested local.com and I posted an ad on there so far.

  • You can sell them on craigslist...if you just go to browse under "pets" you'll see there are tons. I think the way they word it is that you are allowed to require an "adoption fee" but not allowed to sell...so IDK. Go look though!

  • no, you can not "sell" pets on craigslist. And you don't have to have an account to post. If you post an ad that even people THINK you are selling, they will flag it and it will be removed without question and there is nothing you can do about it. You can, however put a SMALL rehoming fee and nomatter what people say, it does not ensure a long term, loving home (pitty fighters can afford a 50 dollar animal!!), but it reduces the chances of unethical treatment to your pet.

  • Also beware of people on there who are take your animals and then SALE THEM back on craigslist. We had to rehome our shih tzu and we did to what we thought was a woman excited about the new addition to her family.I also told her that if she changed her mind or had any issues that she could call,come by, or email us anytime. About 2 days later I saw an ad for our baby claiming she is an animal rescuer and rescues ABUSED animals(liar), and rescued him from a PUPPY MILL(liar) and was rehoming him for 150!! I was upset and tried emailing and calling and she just ignored me.Her ads were flagged anyway because of her "price" but that still doesn't change the fact that she lied to us and then lied to craigslisters in order to gain sympathy and get into their pocket books. She also has posted ads for other people pets, too... Anyway, just be careful on placing your pets. And if anything else...try to keep them with you!

  • BabyCakes that is horrible. I used to breed APBTs and with that breed you have to be VERY wary of those you sell puppies to. I did background checks, home checks, and references. I also sold every pup with a contract.
    Good Luck in finding homes for your pups. What breed are they?

  • They do not allow people to sell animals on Craigslist because of the overpopulation problem. There are thousands of dogs dying every day across the country in shelters, because people purchase dogs from breeders rather than adopting. You should be responsible and spay or neuter your pet, rather than adding to the problem.
