Financial terms for payments
Listing/Community Membership Fee for Guardians: There is no fee when a Guardian posts a Pet Profile. A Guardian can only incur a charge on getyourpet.com if they choose the option of Boosting their pet’s profile. Otherwise the service is free for Guardians.
Membership Requirement for Adopters: When an interested Adopter is ready to establish contact with a Guardian(s), request an in-person meet-up, and eventually set up a pet adoption, the Adopter must first join the Get Your Pet community. This entitles the Adopter to message in-site with as many Guardians as he or she wishes, with a view to eventually making meet-ups and an adoption.
Adoption Fee for Adopters: When a Guardian and Adopter agree on an adoption, which is signified by the Guardian physically transferring the Animal to the Adopter, the Adopter is asked to finalize the adoption by paying the adoption fee (“Adoption Fee”) and confirming transfer of ownership. The Adoption Fee entitles the Adopter to the “Adoption Package,” which covers the cost of a physical examination of the Animal by a Get Your Pet participating veterinarian, a legal adoption/transfer of ownership document, a certificate for 30 days’ pet insurance from Trupanion (offer varies in California), and, should the adoption not work out, the right to re-list the adopted Animal on Get Your Pet. Regardless of which, or how many, of these services the Adopter elects to take advantage of, the Adopter must pay Get Your Pet a fee ($199 for a dog, $49 for a cat). Get Your Pet is not responsible or liable for the services performed by any veterinarian.
Any adopter who fails to pay getyourpet.com the adoption fee when they adopt a pet through this site understands that their account may be placed with an external collection agency. They will be responsible for reimbursement of any fees from the collection agency, including all costs and expenses incurred collecting their account, and possibly including reasonable attorney’s fees, if so incurred during collection efforts.
In order for Get Your Pet or their designated external collection agency to service their account, and where not prohibited by applicable law, the adopter agrees that Get Your Pet and the designated external collection agency are authorized to (i) contact them by telephone at the telephone number(s) provided, including wireless telephone numbers, which could result in charges to them, (ii) contact them by sending text messages (message and data rates may apply) or emails, using any email address they provide and (iii) methods of contact may include using pre-recorded/artificial voice message and/or use of an automatic dialing device, as applicable.
“Payment Method” means a payment method that you have added to your Get Your Pet Account, such as a credit card or debit card.
“Service Fees” means the Adoption Fees.

Guardian conduct and prohibitions
A Guardian may, in our discretion, list an Animal (“Pet Listing”) for adoption by Adopters. By listing an Animal, each Guardian agrees, and each Adopter understands, as follows:
- When you, the Guardian, transfer the Animal into the possession of the Adopter, you are no longer the Animal’s owner. By transferring the Animal you agree that you have no right to the Animal and are not responsible for the Animal. The Adopter owns the Animal, is responsible for the Animal, and owes Get Your Pet the Adoption Fee.
- You are the legal Guardian of the pet whose profile you are listing, and legally authorized to transfer possession of that pet to an Adopter.
- You are at least 18 years of age or legal age in your state of residence (whichever is greater).
- All information you provide will be truthful, accurate, complete and up to date to the best of your knowledge at the time provided and you will update any Pet Listings to keep them truthful, accurate and complete. You are solely responsible for the accuracy and completeness of such information.
- You are wholly responsible for fulfilling obligations both implied and stated in any Pet Listing you create and you may not post any Pet Listing that you do not intend to honor.
- You are solely responsible for complying with all applicable laws in connection with the delivery of an Animal to an Adopter.
- You understand that Get Your Pet reserves the right to suspend your account or revoke your right to use this Site or cancel a Pet Listing at any time for any reason and to report suspicious listings to appropriate law enforcement agencies.
- Animals are listed and adoptions made at the Guardian’s own risk and discretion. Get Your Pet has no decision-making authority with respect to the adoption process. The Adopter and Guardian are solely responsible for any and all communications and interactions, including, but not limited to, meet-ups.
- You acknowledge that the collection of a Final Adoption Fee helps to ensure, but does not guarantee that the Adopter’s intentions for the Animal are in the Animal’s best interest.
- You will not accept or receive any payment, in the form of cash, services, or property, for the adoption of any Animal listed on this Site. Your account may be suspended or your right to use this Site revoked, in Get Your Pet’s discretion, if you breach this covenant.

- You may not list any Animal on our Site that has been found to be “dangerous” or “vicious” by any court of law or government agency. You also agree that each Animal you list on this Site does not pose an imminent threat of serious aggression towards people or other animals nor has the Animal shown any behaviors that could be defined as “dangerous” or “vicious.” Specifically, no dog listed by Guardian has been determined to be a “Bad Dog” or like determination under applicable law.
Additional Adopter conduct and prohibitions
Adopters may, in our discretion, contact Guardians for the purpose of pursuing the adoption of an Animal posted in a Pet Listing. By using this Site, each Adopter agrees to the following:

- Animals are adopted at the Adopter’s sole and absolute risk and discretion, including, but not limited to, the compatibility of any Animal, the health of any Animal, its temperament or fitness for a particular home or family circumstance. Get Your Pet does not conduct any research regarding the Animals or the Pet Listings, including without limitation the backgrounds of any Animal featured in User-Generated Content, and we are not responsible or liable for any information regarding the Animals, content of the Pet Listings, or actions of the Animal. Get Your Pet has no decision-making authority with respect to the adoption process. The Adopter and Guardian are solely responsible for any and all communications and interactions, including, but not limited to, meet-ups. Get Your Get makes no representation that a request for adoption will be accepted by any Guardian.
- All information provided by you is truthful, accurate, complete and up to date to the best of your knowledge.
