End: Finished with your animal history Although I understand that every animal adopted has been inspected and its history reviewed, I appreciate that you can make no warranty in regard to the pet and that you can give me only such information as you have received with regard to the pet. If, for any reason, I am not able to care for my adopted pet, I will contact the Animal Care Society for acceptance Into the Center and re-adoption. The Society will determine whether or not the pet can be accepted for re-adoption. If the Animal Care Society demands the pet's return for any reason, I agree to promptly return the pet to the Center.
