I understand that Fetch & Releash is a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to rescuing homeless animals and agree to pay an adoption fee. *
I understand that if within 2 weeks of adoption, I feel that I cannot provide the best living conditions for this dog, I will immediately surrender the dog back to Fetch & Releash and receive a refund of my adoption fee, less a $100 administrative fee. After 2 weeks, an owner surrender fee may apply. *
I understand that any misrepresentation of the above information is just cause for Fetch & Releash to deny my application, and/or reclaim the dog that is in my home. I acknowledge that Fetch & Releash cannot guarantee any dogs against parasites, diseases or destructive behaviour. I will not hold Fetch & Releash responsible, nor seek any compensation for damages, medical fees or other liabilities incurred by the pet I adopt. *
I understand that once an application is approved, adopters will have 72 hours to complete the paperwork, provide the adoption fee and bring their new family member home. After 72 hours, Fetch & Releash reserves the right to move on to the next application. *
