I understand that Schertz Animal Services does not guarantee the temperate or my new pet, as we not have any behavioral history on the pet before it arrived at the shelter. I understand that my new pet may require some behavioral training, which I agree to provide and to give my pet time to adjust to its new home.
Adoption returns for extenuating circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis and must be pre-arranged and approved by a supervisor.
I understand that all vaccinations, tests, and vet care from the time I take my new pet home will be my responsibility and that Schertz Animal Services will not be held liable for any present or future illness or any needs of my adopted pet.
I understand that if my application is not approved, it is not for reason of personal bias, but for the welfare of the animals and part of the policy set forth by our department.
I understand that all adoption fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.
I understand and will abide by all ordinances, animal limitations, and requirements in compliance with the jurisdiction in which I and the animal will reside. I understand that failure to do so may result in seizure of the adopted pet, and any other animals which are out of compliance in accordance with local ordinances.
I understand that until my newly adopted pet leaves the Schertz Animal Services campus with me, the animal still belongs to Schertz Animal Services. As such, any medical decisions will be made solely at the discretion of SAS Staff and they are not under any obligation to consult me for approval on any procedure.
I agree to be a responsible pet owner and that I will abide by all ordinances for the jurisdiction in which I reside, including requirements for rabies vaccinations and microchips.
I understand that if I need to re-home my pet, I will do so responsibly. I will assist the new owner in transferring the registered microchip information. I understand that SAS is not responsible for taking the pet back.
I am aware that the pet I am adopting may be reclaimed by his/her owner AT ANY TIME before I arrive to pick up the animal, even if it is passed the legal hold time.
