When you the pet owner meets with adoption applicants, this is an important topic for you to discuss and come to a mutual agreement before you agree to finalize the adoption to them. When you "finalize adoption" to sign the agreement, you must check one of these two options:
If this adoption does not work out, please choose one of the following:
____ Return Pet to Owner
____ Rehome using Adopt-a-Pet.com
If you are going to check "Return Pet to Owner" be sure to come to a mutual agreement with your adopter for exactly for how many days, weeks, months, or years after the adoption that applies, or if it is for the lifetime of the pet.
If you are going to check "Rehome using Adopt-a-Pet.com" discuss what happens if the adopter tries or is unable to rehome that way, what additional steps the adopter agrees to take before the adopter relinquishes the pet to an animal shelter.
