Remove the pet from the home if any conditions of the adoption contract have been violated or, if in the opinion of RFL, the environment is unsafe.
If at any time you cannot keep your pet, you must return it to RFL and not to any other individual or shelter.
We cannot guarantee the health of any animals adopted. Any time you adopt an animal, you should take it to the vet as soon as possible. Your animal has been checked by a vet, but will need to be started immediately on a program of
preventative vet care.
Please be aware that the animals available for adoption are rescue animals and, as such, have often been exposed to a variety of diseases. Like human illnesses, these disorders can have an incubation period of up to several weeks. If the animal you adopt shows signs of illness in the first weeks after it has been adopted, please inform us and take it to the vet for treatment. Once an animal is adopted, the adopter is responsible for all medical expenses. However under circumstances, which need to be approved RFL may pay part of the dogs medical care .
