Paws for Consideration

Take a Dog or Cat home for a sleep-over

The main goal of the Geogia SPCA is for all our rescued pets to find their forever homes. To help us achieve this, we have the "Paws for Consideration" program to give adopters more confidence as they choose the best animal for their home.

Adopters who take an animal home and discover that it is not a good fit may return the animal for a refund or exchange within seven days. This time may not give you all the answers, but we think it will help the adopters and the animals find a great fit. 

How does the program work?

Any animal adopted from us can be returned to the adoption center during regular operating hours. Adopters will receive a full refund for the adoption fee as long as it has not been more than 7 days from the date of adoption. Adopters may also choose to work with the adoption staff to select a different animal that will be a better match for their home. 

Finding your new best friend might happen quickly, or it might take time.

While we believe this program is very helpful, sometimes it takes dogs and cats a while to settle in at a new home. You might not see the true personality of the new pet for a good while, but we hope that being able to have a trial period with them in your home will go a long way in determining if they are a good fit.
