365 days every year animals are bought and sold on Gumtree.  Most of the people that are selling these animals trust their new owners to look after their beloved pets, puppies, kittens etc that they are going to be looked after.  Unfortunately this is not the case.  People promise that they will look after the animals, then especially if they are given away FREE sell them on for profit.  I see it all the time the same animals are sold in a different area thinking the previous owners wont find out.  Just now there is an example of this happening with a French Bull Dog.  Yes there are times when it is not possible to keep a pet due to unfortunate circumstances but please think twice about just handing a pet over to a stranger.  Think about rehoming through a family member or pet homing centre where you know they will be looked after and families vetted before, instead of just being handed over at your front door.  I am certainly not saying that all people buying and selling animals on Gumtree do this but there are nasty people out there, definately NOT animals lovers.
