Policies and Frequently Asked Questions
Animal Deposit Policies
ALL DEPOSITS ARE NONREFUNDABLE. Deposit money is credited to the total cost of the baby, balance is due before shipping or at pickup. If you choose to move your deposit to another animal you will lose 50% of your deposit. Once an animal is ready to go, you have 7 days to schedule shipping or make arrangements to pickup the animal. A $5-$15 per day fee will be added onto the price for any animal not picked up or scheduled to ship after 7 days of being ready to go.
