By entering my name below, I acknowledge that I have read and agree to this Adoption Contract and that I am of legal age and have the capacity to make a binding contract.
10-day grace period policy: If, within the first 10 days of adoption you determine your adopted pet isn’t a good fit or you find yourself unable to provide necessary medical care, you may return your animal to Pet Haven and receive a 100% refund of your pet’s adoption fee. Please understand that if you choose to return the animal you will not be able to re-adopt the animal at any time.
Post 10-day return policy: If you decide to return your adopted pet to Pet Haven after the 10-day grace period, Pet Haven will make every effort to find a suitable foster home for the animal as quickly as possible. Adopters are welcome to place their animal with friends and family - returning to Pet Haven is not a requirement.
Since Pet Haven is a foster-based organization with limited foster homes, we request at least 14 days to secure suitable placement in a foster home. We may ask that owners provide boarding for their animal in the interim, if necessary.
If an animal has posed a threat (i.e. bite history) Pet Haven may request the animal to be assessed by a professional trainer to ensure the animal is safe to place in a new home. Pet Haven may also offer to provide support services (such as offering a professional trainer assessment or a discounted class at a local training facility) to owners willing and able to work with through their animal’s behavior issues.
Once an animal is returned, Pet Haven becomes the legal guardian and is solely responsible for using our judgment and discretion in placing an animal, including euthanasia decisions.
