Guidelines & Privacy
- Your advertisement (listing or profile) must be informative and truthful. Information regarding health, physical attributes, breed history, vaccinations, microchipping, and photos, must be accurate and not in any way misleading. Photos must be your own, or you must have permission for any photos used in your advertisement. If you are using photos that are not of your animal/s, you must state this explicitly in your listing so as not to deceive potential buyers.
- Any suspicions or reports of maltreatment, unacceptable living conditions, or serious health conditions will be reported to the appropriate authorities and membership will be cancelled, and without refund of any membership fees.
- The Perfect Pets platform is not intended for large scale, commercial breeders breeding purely for the pet market. Any suspicions or reports of a breeder operating in this way will result in membership being cancelled without notice, and without refund of any membership fees.
- Some animal breeds cannot be advertised on this site as they are prohibited in Australia. This includes some breeds of dogs (e.g. Pitbulls, Dogo Argentino), as well as a whole range of foreign exotic species (anything from gerbils to chameleons). Advertisements for such breeds and species will be removed. It is solely the obligation of the advertiser to ensure that their advertisements are within the law, and PerfectPets.com.au takes no responsibility for the advertisement of pets that are deemed ‘illegal’. Also please note that different states may have differing laws with regards to pet legality, and it is the seller and buyers responsibility to adhere to these laws as apply to them.
- Advertisers are responsible for ensuring that they are fully registered and current (as appropriate and required), and pet/s being sold via Perfect Pets are appropriately micro-chipped, vaccinated, de-sexed and wormed according to the laws and regulations of the seller’s state or territory. Additionally, where a microchip, vaccinations, and/or worming is required, certification must be supplied to the buyer. Cat and dog breeders listed on Perfect Pets must also supply Pedigree papers and any other relevent paperwork as required by their registering body or council. If found in breach of any of these requirements.
- Advertisers must provide all information regarding any health issue/s on their advertisement and must provide all documentation to the buyer.
- Advertisers must be the legal owner of the animals/s being advertised for sale, or have the authority to advertise on behalf of the owner.
- Buyers are responsible for ensuring that they obtain the appropriate paperwork and information from the seller according to the laws and regulations in their state or territory.
- Advertisements must not contain promotions or advertisements for any third party without written consent from PerfectPets.com.au.
- PerfectPets.com.au accepts advertisements of animals at any age, however; at the time of purchase, the dog/s must be a minimum of 8 weeks old, cat/s must be a minimum of 12 weeks old, rabbits must be a minimum of 6 weeks old, guinea pigs, and rats and mice must be a minimum of 4 weeks old.
- PerfectPets.com.au takes no responsibility for animals that may become ill or deceased for any reason following purchase. Again, it is the responsibility of the advertiser to provide truthfully the condition of the animal, and the necessary health documents to the buyer.
- Information on this website is provided for general interest and education and should not be substituted for professional advice. PerfectPets.com.au recommends that you obtain advice from the relevant authorities for definitive information.
- A refund will be considered, but not guaranteed, in the case of technical issues where a problem has occurred with the submission of your profile or upgraded listing if due to no fault of your own.
- PerfectPets.com.au reserves the right to cancel the membership of any person if there is any suspicion or report that the above guidelines are not being followed.
- PerfectPets.com.au reserves the right to remove any profile or listing at any time.
Refunds - No refunds will be given once a paid profile or listing, or upgraded listing has been placed on the site. Perfect Pets reserves the right to edit or remove any profile or listing if necessary or deemed appropriate, at any time and without notification.
