Gumtree is an online classified advertising site, allowing users to buy, sell or give away anything and everything. Sadly this includes animals. The ‘Get Gumtree Animal-Free’ campaign aims to end this policy.
But what can you do?
1. Monitor the website and report any breaches to their policies of banning the sales of: puppies or kittens below the age of 8 weeks, pregnant animals, livestock, animals from breeders and working dogs. They also don’t allow animals to be swapped. Report anything you see.
