Welcome to our Site located at www.pawslikeme.com(the “Site”), which is operated by PawsLikeMe Inc. (referred to as “PawsLikeMePawsLikeMe", “we,” “us” or “our”). The Site contains information, statements, tools, articles, features, functionality, software and services (collectively, the “Content”) we believe instrumental in providing a platform (i) to list and search for adoptable pets, (ii) to take compatibility tests to find the right pet, (iii) to complete adoption applications, (iv) to communicate with adoption organizations and individuals looking to rehome their pet to facilitate pet adoption by others, and (v) to make available and perform such other services as the Site may offer.
Users to the site may include:
References to “Users” includes Organizations, Guardians, Adopters and any other users visiting this Site. Only Users located in the United States of America and Canada are currently able to provide information (other than Email address) necessary to become Organizations, Guardians, or Adopters.
This Site is not intended for use by any person in any jurisdiction or country where such use would be contrary to law or regulation, or that would subject us or our directors, officers, employees or agents to any registration or licensing requirement. Only Organizations, Guardians and Adopters located in the United States of America and Canada are eligible to use this Site for purposes of listing, or applying to adopt, any animal.
Please note that we may modify these Terms and Conditions from time to time and each modification will become effective once posted. Your continued use of this Site after the effective date of any such modification constitutes your acceptance of such modified agreement terms. We suggest that you review this Agreement on a regular basis to ensure that you understand your current rights and obligations under this Agreement. We also suggest that you print or save a copy of this Agreement for your records.
We are an Internet-based service that (i) allows Adopters to search for animals that are available for adoption from Organizations and Guardians and match Adopter personalities with potential pets, (ii) allows Organizations to list available pets for adoption, and (iii) allows Guardians to list their pets for re-homing in order to find Adopters. Our goal is to create a venue that effectively serves the needs of Adopters, Organizations and Guardians. We derive our revenue primarily from processing fees related to pet adoptions.
We are NOT, and will NOT be, a party to any transaction between any Organization and any Adopter or a Guardian and any Adopter, even though we provide tools that may enable such transactions to occur. As a result, we do not warrant or guarantee any part of any actual or potential transaction between any Users of this Site, including the health of any animal, the fitness of any pet for a particular home or family circumstance, the legality of any adoption or the truth or accuracy of any information provided by any User.
Our proprietary pet matching algorithm (the “PMA”)is intended to provide general guidelines regarding likely pet and Adopter compatibility and is in no way a guarantee that any particular pet will be compatible with any Adopter.
We are not liable for interactions by and between Users or third parties with whom Users may become aware as a result of their use of this Site. We specifically disclaim all liability relating to any use of this Site or any transactions entered by Users of this Site, including, but not limited to, delivery of goods and services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with pet listings.
If any dispute arises between or among Users, each User hereby releases PawsLikeMe, its officers, employees, owners, agents and successors in rights from claims, damages and demands of every kind, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and our service.
Organizations and Guardians are wholly responsible for fulfilling obligations both implied and stated in any pet listing they create. We reserve the right to cancel a pet listing at any time for any reason and to report suspicious listings to appropriate law enforcement agencies.
Users should note that PawsLikeMe is not responsible for the accuracy of pet listings. Pet listings are either scraped from the websites of the Organizations with which we have relationships, third party websites that make their pet listings available via API, or otherwise provided by Guardians. PawsLikeMe makes reasonable effort to correct any listings that we learn to be inaccurate or outdated, but responsibility for the listings rests with the User providing the information.
In addition to the other rules and requirements described in this Agreement, Organizations must follow the rules listed below when participating in the referral based re-homing service.
From time to time, we may offer additional services (“Enhancements”). Some Enhancements may allow certain pet listings to be modified using special fonts, characters and functionality. Other Enhancements may improve the placement of particular pet listings on this Site for a specific period of time by, for example, placing an advertisement at the top of an Adopter’s search results or within prominent “featured” areas within this Site. Other Enhancements may be made available from time to time, and we reserve the right to make any Enhancements we deem necessary or advisable and to immediately cease offering any particular Enhancement at our discretion. Any party considering whether to purchase an Enhancement must make sure they fully understand the conditions, cost and, as applicable, the duration of the Enhancement prior to purchasing.
Organizations may, in our discretion, list pets in their care for adoption by Adopters. By listing a pet, Organizations agree:
Guardians may, in our discretion, list their pets for adoption by Adopters. By listing their pet, Guardians agree:
Adopters may apply to adopt pets via this Site and in the discretion of each applicable Organization and/or Adopter. By using this Site, each Adopter agrees:
