To ensure that animals find permanent, loving, responsible homes, the staff at the Snake River Animal Shelter will spend time getting to know the potential adopters. We want the best match for the animals and humans involved. All applicants will be asked to complete an Adoption Application to help place the animal in a forever home that is compatible with its needs. If applicants, looking for a dog, already have a dog(s) or children, it is mandatory for the potential adopter to bring their dog into our facility for a meet-and-greet between the dogs before the adoption is finalized.
Due to the cost of processing, refunds are not offered. If you need to return your adopted animal for any reason within 14 days, you will receive a certificate for the amount paid which can be used towards the adoption of a different animal within one year.
If the adoption is not a good fit or is not working out for some reason, the adopted pet may be returned to the Snake River Animal Shelter within 30 days from the date of adoption by the original adopter. Sorry, no refunds or gift certificates will be given. Please call 208-523-4219 to arrange your return. If you choose to leave your animal at our shelter in an inhumane way, including abandoning the animal on our property crated or tied without notice, you will be banned from future adoptions and volunteer opportunities at SRAS.
If it is past the 30-day return window, you agree to contact the Snake River Animal Shelter to surrender the animal. At the time of surrender, you will be obligated to pay the current surrender fee. If we cannot take in the animal immediately, you agree to home the animal until we can take it in. You also agree not to give away, sell or trade this animal, or otherwise abandon it.
