In adopting this pet, the owner agrees to:
1. Accept and keep the dog / cat as a companion.
2. Provide humane care – giving pet proper food, water, shelter, exercise, and attention.
3. See that a veterinarian gives this pet regular preventative care and immediate medical attention when it becomes ill or injured.
4. Not permit the animal to be used for vivisection or experimentation.
5. Comply with all state, county, and municipal laws pertaining to animals.
6. Indemnifies and holds harmless Waverly Pet Rescue for any damages which the pet may do to any person or property.
7. Return the animal to Waverly Pet Rescue if it can no longer receive adequate care (food, shelter, affection and attention).
8. Understand that adopting an animal is a 12-20 year commitment.
9. If not already done, spay or neuter the pet within 30 days.
10. If for any reason it does not work out with the pet adopted, you MUST return the animal ASAP. Even if it is 5 or 10 years later, we need to have the animal back if you cannot keep or for any reason.
No refunds given for an adoption return unless a medical problem develops within seven (7) days. The animal may then be returned with a veterinarian’s statement regarding the problem, and the adopter may request their adoption fees be refunded.
Please make sure you are 100% sure this pet is the one for you before you adopt it. It is very hard on an animal when they get returned.
