Listing Guidelines

We appreciate your cooperation and adherence to our community guidelines.
Failure to comply may result in the deletion of your listing without prior warning.

ONE animal per listing. Please only list one animal in your listing. If the animal is in a bonded pair, you can select “bonded pair” in the list of description options provided. In the written description box, please include a link to the other animal’s listing or just their name.

Only type the NAME of the animal in the name field. Please don't add things like "urgent" or any additional information. You can include this in the description field. Please use only English characters. Do not post the animal’s name in Hangeul. Also, to avoid errors in your upload, please keep the name short (example: "David", not "David formerly Socks").

Only post LANDSCAPE photos. Please post photos taken in landscape view (“long” ways). Photos in vertical view (“tall” ways) will be cut off and site viewers will not see the full image of the cutie you’ve listed.

The animal MUST be in your possession. Only list animals that you have in your possession. Please do NOT post about animals you’ve seen on the street if you did not take the animal in. Please also do not post for animals in a government pound. We know you want to help these animals, but the best way would be to take them in as a foster family or take them to a local no-kill shelter. If you are posting on behalf of a no-kill shelter, you must provide written authorization from the shelter owner that you are the designated contact for posting listings.

Use YOUR e-mail address and respond to ALL inquires. The contact email for each listing MUST belong to the person that created the listing. This person should have authority to process adoption applications for the listed animal. The contact person must speak English. If you are posting on behalf of a non-English speaking acquaintance or facility, please be sure to follow all other guidelines. After listing an animal, you have agreed to answer all inquiries in a timely fashion. If several complaints are received regarding an unresponsive lister, the listing will be removed from the site and the user will be issued a warning. Several incidences will result in the user being blacklisted.

DELETE your listing after adoption. Please delete the listing for the animal when adoption is no longer needed. Rescue Korea has received several complaints from would-be adopters regarding abandoned listings and unresponsive listers. Keep in mind that unhappy adopters will lead to less visits and recommendations to use our site. To make sure our furry friends here have the highest chances of find loving homes, please use the site responsibly.

You will be sent “Check-in” e-mails periodically to make sure that you comply with this request. Failure to respond in a timely manner will result in deletion of your post as it will be automatically considered “abandoned”.

**Whenever possible, listers will be notified if their listing does not follow our guidelines and given the opportunity to edit. However, they may be deleted without prior warning. **
