How do you all feel about zootoo allowing the sale and of puppies? Also the giving away of animals on their classified ads? I noticed today for the 1st time they have a classified section. I saw the free kittens and dogs in it. Please give me your opinion on it? I am concerned about it to be honest. I have no idea why answers are being deleted. I am not deleting them. As I wasn't even home the day these were done. I would assume it would be zootoo? I was surprised when I read today that it was stated that answers were deleted. All I can say is to retype them. Again, I have no idea who or how they became deleted by.

My answer was deleted on this one too, I said I was uncomfortable with giving away ferr pets it leaves allot to be desired and allot can be done with free animals that I don't want to mention because is there is a wacko out there I might give them ideas, but I'm sure that an animal person will understand, I don't think people should be deleted because someone might not agree, or may not like the persons other answers, this is an open forum right??

The classified section would be a great feature if it didn't allow the sale/giving away of animals! It would be a great way for people to sell/trade unwanted supplies, etc. but it should absolutely NOT be for the selling/giving away of unwanted animals!

Unfortunately, giving away an animal to someone you do not know can end in disaster! Often times, people giving away animals do not do the necessary background checks in attempt to ensure a good home. This is not what I thought Zootoo was about when I signed up, and quite frankly, I'm disappointed!
If this turns into an animal selling/swapping site then I'M OUT. Simply put. I will not stand for that! This site is supposed to be a place animal lovers can come to converse, share stories, tips, talk about adoptions, etc... NOT a place where people come to get rid of/ buy animals!

It would be nice if rescues could post their animals in need on Zootoo to increase awareness and increase an animals chance of finding a home.... but it should stop at rescues/shelters.

I'm not too fond of being able to give away animals because it will promote people giving away "oops" breedings, especially if they're able to put a price on it. I know they don't allow breeders to advertise, etc, but if you allow a price to be put on the animal, of course people are going to sell their litters, accidental or intentional. I just don't feel good about it.

This is the first time I've looked at it and I can't say that I like it either.
