No. We don't require 501 (c) (3) non-profit status of organizations that list pets with us.
However, you must be a legitimate rescue organization and not engaging in activities counter-productive to the cause of animal rescue such as breeding pets, encouraging the public to breed pets, or selling pets for profit. You must be in possession of any local or state-required permits necessary for your operations. You must not have any pending or confirmed animal control or criminal citations or violations.
We have other requirements too! You can read our rules for using our service at
