Account Types

It is important that you sign up to the correct account type to take advantage of the full benefits associated with each account type. Below is a description of each account type and which one is right for you:

Individual (Default)

This account type is the default account type for individuals who want to use Pets4Homes, and should be used by people who want access to the extra features on Pets4Homes including the ability to save adverts or search, contact sellers and much more. This is also the account type for those who will only on a few occasions advertise pets for adoption or sale (less than 3 different pets in a 12-month period).


This account type is for professional breeders and hobby breeders who expect to frequently advertise pets for sale or adoption. You will be able to upload a logo and breeder profile on your account. Note: If you do upload 3 or more different pets in a 12-month period you will be required to be licensed and upload proof of your license (see this article for how to do so).


This account type is for UK registered charities and rescue centres. A valid Charity ID is required. You will be able to upload a logo and your rescue centre information on your account.


This account type is companies who want to use Pets4Homes to advertise. Pets cannot be advertised with this account.
