Adoption Return Policy

Adopter's have a 30-day adjustment period if you determine your recently adopted pet isn’t a good fit or you find yourself unable to provide necessary medical care; you may return the animal to KNC and receive an adoption credit certificate that can be used toward the adoption of another animal. If at any time you can no longer care for your adopted pet, you may surrender the animal to KNC. If the 30-day return policy has expired, you will not receive an adoption credit certificate. Because we offer foster-to-adopt opportunities and our adoption fees become a tax-deductible donation, our adoption contract states adoption rehoming fees are non-refundable. Some refunds are possible for returns, if eligible, and must be submitted to and approved by the board, less an administration fee of $55. Refund process does take some time as internal approval is needed.
