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. *
