PetSmart : What is Their Return Policy For Pet Snakes?

PetSmart Return Policy

Do you have a pet snake?

In this case, you should know about PetSmart’s return policy. It offers a 14-day guarantee on all pets, but there are a few catches.

The animal can only be returned if it is sick or dead and not healthy.

This may sound like a lot of work to keep up with your pet’s health for just in case purposes, but as long as your snake has obvious ailments such as being lethargic or losing its appetite;

PetSmart will accept them back and try to find ways to reimburse you whether through store credit, another pet or money!

People often buy things from the store, only to change their minds and return them, and it happens with animals too.

In general, you aren’t sure when first getting a pet whether or not you will love having one, if it is healthy, or if it would be a good fit.

So I did some research in this area, and here’s what I found.

What is PetSmart’s Return Policy On Snakes?

All small animals at PetSmart come with a 14-day money-back guarantee. 

Unfortunately, pets that are healthy cannot be returned to PetSmart. Healthy animals will not be accepted. 

As long as the animal has some obvious ailments, though, the store will accept them. 

They often find a way to reimburse you whether through store credit, a new pet, or money.

If your snake falls ill after purchase but before day 15 of its life with you then  proof from an accredited veterinarian within 72 hours in order to refund your money and/or give you another snake free of charge.

It is not necessary to return your pet to the store you purchased it from if they do not let you do so.


Keep It

First-time pet owners may find handling and care for their new animal a bit nerve-wracking.

Why not learn more about your pet before you make a snap decision to get rid of it? 

you may not have a pet for long.

Pets, or animals in general, are often creatures of habit and can become quite attached to their surroundings if they spend enough time there.

Pets may also start to show signs of neglect if not cared for well enough.

This is when you might want to consider giving them up–usually, the animal’s health will be better off without you than with you as an owner who cares less about it than your other belongings.

wait for a bit.

If you’ve had the animal for a while and they start to show signs of neglect or other problems, it may be time to part ways with them.

Waiting can help give a pet some time to adjust and make their life as comfortable as possible before taking such an extreme measure–though this is not always enough if they are in immediate danger (such as being aggressive).

Don’t take drastic measures too quickly.

Remember, the return policy from PetSmart should cover any creatures that don’t work out, so keep calm and keep your temper in check!

Try to find a pet that’s a better fit for your home.

-If the animal doesn’t seem healthy at all, immediately return them to PetSmart as soon as possible so they can clear out more inventory; sometimes stores are understaffed in this area and may even need help cleaning cages before accepting new animals into Petsmart’s return.

Be sure to visit PetSmart’s return policy site for more information on what to do when it comes time to return a small animal.

PetSmart also recommends spaying or neutering your pet if you are unable to find someone else willing and able to take care of the responsibility–and some shelters offer this service, as well!

You can also request their Care Agreement booklet with all the details in one easy-to-find location (it’ll even have pictures!).

Often this is difficult for people who’ve never had a pet before because they don’t know how difficult caring for an animal is; that said, all animals deserve love, regardless of their origin.

If Petsmart’s return policy states that you can’t return your pet, it might be because of a health issue.

You should contact them to clarify the details and see if they’ll offer you any other options for returning your animal–or at least try something else before giving up on him or her altogether!

Consider Selling It.

However, you cannot release a healthy snake into the wild, not even if it is otherwise in good health. You will have to sell your snake.

If your snake is healthy, but you still wish to get rid of it, go ahead.

Instead of selling the animal, you could put it up for adoption on sites like Craigslist if you don’t wish to.

A person looking for a pet will see your posting and contact you with interest in adopting them from there!

Animal Control

A shelter or animal control may ask for your snake if you cannot keep it, return it, or sell it.

Reptiles are classified as wild animals, not domesticated pets.

So there is no guarantee that the animal control will take your snake if you tell them it’s just a pet and you want to give him or her away.

So please be sure of what kind of place you’re giving the snake up for adoption to!

You might have better luck with an exotic bird rescue agency than at a local animal shelter–sometimes shelters don’t allow reptiles because they can carry salmonella or other diseases in their mouth when they bite down on things like food and toys.
