We understand that adopting a pet is a big decision with many factors to consider. We offer full refunds for animals returned within one week of adoption in order to give everyone in your family an opportunity to see if it is a perfect fit. We also offer full refunds if your free veterinary visit reveals medical issues you are not able or willing to take on. (Please note that it takes a few weeks to process a refund.)
