Pets & animals policy update
In July we'll be rolling out new features to allow sellers to indicate that they comply with the recently announced Trade Me Code of Animal Welfare.

We'll be introducing a cap on the number of cat and dog listings that can be made per membership: 40 dogs or five dog litters, and 40 cats or six cat litters per 12-month period. This cap is designed to target breeders who may be breeding animals too frequently, which could be unhealthy for the animal.

If you're involved with animal breeding and list on Trade Me, we suggest you hop onto our Trust & Safety blog and familiarise yourself with the changes.
