Pets Safety Tips

  • Before you buy a pet from anyone, know the operation by visiting personally. A breeder should always be willing to show you their pets in person.
  • Always look for the local deal.
  • Check references, which can include veterinarians and others who've purchased pets from this breeder. And make sure you deal directly with a breeder, not a broker.
  • Use common sense. If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Never hesitate to seek advice from a breeder or kennel association or your local pet shop if you're sceptimist about an ad that you have seen.
  • Avoid up-front payments via money order, wire transfer or moneygram.
  • Don't deal with anyone who promises a free puppy for just the cost of shipping. Scammers in these types of transactions often ask you to send more money because the nonexistent dog is "stuck at the airport" for various reasons such as customs complications or problems with the crate.
  • Never purchase a puppy with the promise of getting the AKC (American Kennel Club) papers from the seller at a later time. It takes 6 to 8 weeks for puppies to be ready for a new home, which is ample time for the breeder to receive the papers. It takes a couple of weeks through the mail and only a week if registration is done online. The AKC cannot help you get papers after the sale. In other words, if the seller tells you the dog is "register-able"-run the other way.
  • Internet scammers can deceive buyers by using readily available online photos or stolen photos of other people's pets to represent the nonexistent animal.
  • See if any complaints have been filed against the breeder/seller with The Humane Society (http://hsus.org) of the United States or Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS)(http://www.caps-web.org).
