If you want to be the proud owner of a cute little Pomeranian or a great big St. Bernard, Craigslist may just be the place for you. As an animal lover, there are two major categories you should be concerned with, the first being "services" and the second being "community". In both these sections you will find a sub category for "pets".
The question here is - what does Craigslist have to offer for animal lovers?
If you are a pet owner, and you need someone to look after your beloved cat when you leave town, all you have to do is look under the above mentioned categories for a reliable person who is willing to take your cat in for the time you will be away. You can meet with the person and see if you feel comfortable leaving your pet with him/her.
If you are a pet owner and you want to buy accessories for your pet, you can find that on Craigslist too. Many pet owners who have lost their pets may want to give away leashes, bowls bedding etc.
If you are a prospective pet owner and you want to buy an animal, you will find tons of people on Craigslist selling pets. Some may be selling them for a price while others are just looking for someone to adopt theirs. If your cat or dog has just had babies and you want to give them away for free or sell them, you simply have to put up an ad in your area and soon enough someone who is interested will contact you.
