    I agree , the sale of pets should not be allowed. Animals have been sold, abused and maimed even killed that are listed on other for sale sites. It would be a shame to have your site be in connection to this.

    Posting pets is inappropriate. Free or low cost pets often time are used as bait dogs for dog fighting rings. This is not the appropriate platform for pets in any capacity. Don't breed or buy while pets in shelters die!!!

    This issue has bothered me very much. I don't prefer this app because of a sense of lack of social conscience regarding the selling of animals. Other reputable apps do not allow the sale of animals and i prefer to use those apps over this one. Actually this is my last choice. And I have been tempted to delete this app as well as advise my friends not to use it at all because of this very reason. Plus there does not seem to be a "reporting" option on this app.when I have come across questionable items. Why is that?

    This seems like a "free for all" ghetto kind of an atmosphere on this app so again I would recommend other apps before this one, if at all.

    Will you PLEASE Stop allowing the sale of PETS and ANIMALS ON 5Miles. The majority of these animals are STOLEN AND ARE SOLD TO PEOPLE THAT USE THEM AS "BAIT ANIMALS " USED TO TRAIN KILLER FIGHTING DOGS. PLEASE HAVE RESPECT FOR THESE HELPLESS ANIMALS AND DELETE THESE POSTS AS THEY APPEAR.

    I really think this may be the ONLY App now that does allow pets to be sold or given away.
    This poses harm for all involved on the receiving end. People will often even steal popular pups to turn a profit. This is a pissibility due to the fact 5 miles provides the platform. Then there are those that are selling non - registered pups for the price of a registered pup. The pups are often not vetted and some are iLL or not the age mentioned, all types of scenarios are seen.
    This site has doubled (or more) in the puppy for free or for sale post due to all the other resell platforms have enforced a no - sale policy for pups/dogs and cats.
    Changing your policy to reflect a NO PET SALES ALLOWED Rule helps the pets and also STOPS those who are putting two dogs together just so they can profit from selling the offspring on a platform that continues to support this disgusting practice. If everyone, including the reselling sites, were to ban this practice, all these babies being born to be sold might reflect lower numbers of unwanted pets. There just seems to me that a noticeable explosion of all types and ages of pets are being posted without strict humane rules being imposed. This sure leaves the innocent lil ones vulnerable to God only kbows what.

    Please consider a ban on the sale of domesticated animals on your site. It IS the right thing to do. 💜💜

    ATTENTION: to have your voice heard you can do the following things:
    1. complete the pet survey located at the top of the screen when u open app, vote no on selling pets and add a comment
    2. threaten to take your business elsewhere if they continue allowing this

    3. if you're willing to do more, report all posting of animals for sale.. if they get enough reports they will have to listen
