On very rare occasions, some puppies and kittens are not spayed/neutered prior to adoption due to their age, weight, and/or breed. If this is the case, the spay/neuter appointment will be pre-scheduled and included in our adoption contract and will need to be a date that you can accommodate upon adoption. The alteration surgery is still included in our adoption fee. In this instance, we will require that you sign a spay/neuter contract agreeing to the alteration surgery. If the requirements of the contract are not met, we will consider this as a breach of contract and reserve the right to retain legal ownership of the animal and have it surrendered back into our care at the new owner’s expense. No adoption refunds will be provided for breach of contract.
