If the adoption does not work out, can I bring it back and get my money back?
  • AAS makes every effort to match the animal and family; therefore, we urge families to spend as much time as possible with a new pet, in order to make the best selection. You are strongly encouraged to have your family meet the pet before the adoption.  We encourage you to bring in any pet(s) that you currently own so the animals have a chance to meet and interact before the adoption occurs.
  • We will never turn your pet away; you can always return it, but we do not offer refunds.
