This adoption contract is a legal and binding contract between you, the adopter, and the Stephens County Animal Welfare Center.  By submitting this adoption application online, you are saying that all the information you provided is true and correct.

If for any reason the animal does not work out for you, you agree to return the animal to the Stephens County Animal Welfare Center.  The animal cannot be given to a third party, turned in to another shelter, or otherwise disposed of.

You have 30 days from the date of adoption to vaccinate, spay or neuter the animal (if old enough at the time of adoption or by 7 months of age), and purchase a city tag (if you reside in the city limits).  You are to provide proof of this to the Animal Shelter or the Human Society at (254) 559-2106.  Failure to do so may result in the removal of the animal by the Animal Control Officer.

At no time may this animal be chained, tethered, used for breeding, used for fighting, or used for hog hunting.

The Stephens County Animal Welfare Center and the Animal Control Officer may, at any time, check on the welfare of the animal.  If you live out of town, we will contact Animal Control in that city if necessary.  If for any reason the animal is not being properly cared for, the animal may be removed from its environment or from your possession.

The Stephens County Animal Welfare Center and the City of Breckenridge believe the animal to be in good health at the time of adoption.  The animal will have received its first shots and bordetella.  We do not guarantee the health of any animal.

Adoption fees are nonrefundable.

You may contact the Stephens County Animal Welfare Center if you have any questions or concerns.

By submitting this online adoption form, you agree to the above conditions and terms of adoption of the animal listed.
