The RSPCA encourages potential pet owners to find pets from reputable sources – such as the RSPCA and other well-known rescue organisations – that exist to promote animal welfare, rather than for profit. Or look for a registered breeder and ask for references from previous clients. Check out our guide to finding a good breeder: rspcapuppyguide.com.au.
Of course, not everyone can get out and about these days, so many people will turn to the internet, our go-to place for browsing before we shop. Our Adopt-a-Pet website (adoptapet.com.au) is a safe and secure place for you to ‘meet’ your future friend online.
However, buying a pet is nothing like other online shopping – and, sadly, not everyone advertising animals on-line is as careful about their animals as we are. While the internet is a great way to research and look for your new best friend, you should absolutely avoid buying a pet without meeting them in person first.
Otherwise, you could inadvertently be supporting puppy farms or poor breeding practices – not to mention the fact that you could fall victim to a scam, leading to emotional (and financial) heartbreak.
And scammers are quick to take advantage.

The West Australian government have compiled a list of puppy scammers, which is nationally relevant.
