Returning an Adopted Pet

Adopting a new pet can be a big change for both you and your animal. Before you considering returning your pet, please contact us at trainer@griffinpondas.com! There are ways we can help keep you and your new friend together.

 

You have just taken an animal home and are very excited to shower them in love and affection, and that is great! However, some animals require an adjustment period in order to get acclimated to their new environment. Your new pet may not be super active or affectionate the first few days and that's okay. Animals going from a shelter to a home will usually become more comfortable in their environment after a few days, so just be patient.

We cannot stress enough the importance of crate training your new dog. This not only keeps the dog from possibly destroying items in your house, but it also keeps them from ingesting items while you're gone. An intestinal obstruction from a foreign object can be fatal to a dog if it goes unnoticed. Take a look at our "Crate Training" page for more info on training your dog, and a "How To" video.

Most issues with a new pet can be resolved with some patience, understanding, and training. Adopting a pet from us is a lifetime relationship, so if you need help contact us. We are here to help you and your pet at any time!

Sometimes things just do not work out. If, for whatever reason, you are not able to keep a pet you adopted from Griffin Pond Animal Shelter you MUST return the animal to us-NO EXCEPTIONS. This is clearly stated in our adoption contract. Please give us a call at (570) 586-3700 ext. 518 to schedule a return appointment. We do not offer adoption fee refunds.
