Oz Doggy Noticeboard Rules & FAQ's
No dogs for sale OR dog wanted messages on notice boards
No dog for sale listings are allowed on the message boards. See dogs for sale page for this paid classifieds service. Cost $10 per month. All other noticeboards remain free. There are no dog wanted messages allowed to protect you from scammers who sell fake dogs.
Please ensure your email address is correct.
If your address is wrong visitors cannot contact you. Unfortunately we can't contact you to tell you this because your address was incorrect. Ye olde catch 22! We have to go on the theory that you know your email address better than anyone else, so please check. We delete messages with incorrect addresses.
All Oz Doggy noticeboards apart from dog for sale are a free public service. We are not required to carry all paid or free notices placed and absolute discretion remains with Oz Doggy at all times. If a paid listing is rejected for whatever reason, a full refund will be given via same payment method within 7 days, if not sooner. Dog for sale messages that try and upload onto FTGH will be deleted and the email address blocked.
We do not enter into debates about dogs which best re: pure breed or not. We have a simple, clear policy of supporting all dogs which are loved, exercised and generally looked after by their owners. We support the five freedoms promoted by the Australian RSPCA.
Noticeboard users are encouraged to report misbehaving users to Oz Doggy if they are hassled or receive emails which cause concern. We log all reports and where possible report abusers to their ISP's. If you have a scam attempt - we recommend the Australian Government SCAMwatch website: http://www.scamwatch.gov.au
