Adoption Returns

Welcoming a new pet into your home can be so exciting. Your family just grew, and together, you have so much to learn! In the first week, you’ll likely start figuring out a routine, building trust, and exploring likes and dislikes. Perhaps you’ll choose to spoil your new pet, and training (and patience!) may be necessary.

For some pets, the transition is quick and easy. Others may need more time and assistance. Panhandle Animal Shelter offers a 30-day adjustment period which you can evaluate the pet’s progress and your adoption decision. If within those 30 days, you determine your recently adopted pet isn’t a good fit or you find yourself unable to provide necessary medical care, you may return the animal to PAS and receive an adoption credit certificate that can be used toward the adoption of another animal or if the animal is returned within 14 days of the adoption, you will receive a full refund.
