Be Careful of Pet Scams

Pet scams are rampant online and many scammers are using the names of legitimate pet transport companies to get your money. Here are some things to watch out for and resources you can use.

Starwood Does Not Sell Animals

Starwood does not sell any puppies, kittens, or any other type of animal. We typically do not work with breeders or transport puppies. We work directly with clients who already have a cat or dog and they need to relocate them for a variety of reasons.

Starwood does not ask for last-minute "transport" or "insurance" fees nor do we ask for any "refundable" fees for any service, especially a "thermal electronic crate." If someone is communicating with you about these things, they are NOT legitimate and you are likely being scammed.
