Q:

Dear Animal Foundation/Meghan... Thank you for your response, but I also contacted Groupon directly, because I forgot to include one other question, and I thought it best have a written response from them as well... and I am very disappointed to learn from Groupon that IF after looking numerous times before August, if I don't find the right dog with you... but I DO find the "right" dog at a different rescue/shelter OR if I find one with you, but younger than a year old... my $55 is GONE... because Groupon stated emphatically that they will NOT issue a refund after 7 days from date of purchase! Since this isn't a restaurant or simple retail purchase, special considerations SHOULD be made... this is a very important decision about adding a permanent, lifelong family member, and our money should not be held hostage, as that may force someone to adopt the wrong dog for fear of losing their money!! Groupon's decision has greatly disappointed me, and has made me weigh if I will ever buy anything from them again, and I hope this comes as a surprise to The Animal Foundation that Groupon would be so rigid on such a delicate decision. If Groupon doesn't change this policy for 'specialized' purchases like this, I would advise The Animal Foundation from using Groupon again in the future! You are better off just offering a special yourselves, like the cat adoption special you talked about. Because I find it downright wrong that they won't refund this money if I am unable to find the right dog with you, it's not fair that you/they would just KEEP that money. Since I already made my purchase, I am hoping to make ONE more visit soon (I've already visited twice before this special, as well as looking at numerous other shelters & rescues, but haven't found the right one yet), and if I don't find the right dog on this next visit, I will have no choice but to request a refund within the 7 days, because there is NO guarantee that I will find the right dog with you in the future, and I can't afford to just lose this money! Whoever makes these decisions at the Animal Foundation should really reconsider using Groupon again, or any company being this rigid on such an important "purchase"!! It's unfair to your customers and potential new parents!

Hi Brian! We apologize for the miscommunication. We got our facts a little crossed! As the largest animals shelter and pet adoption agency in Nevada, we see more than 200 animals entering our shelter each day during the summer. We encourage you to stop by and visit, regardless of whether or not you purchase a Groupon, to meet our pets. With so many available and needing homes, chances are you'll fall in love with one of them...maybe not on your first trip, but eventually! You are correct: Groupon will only refund for the first 7 days after the deal is purchased, and will not refund if you choose to adopt a pet from another organization. We will, however, honor your $55 Groupon and if you choose to adopt a dog younger than 1 year, or adopt a pet after August 31, will discount that adoption fee by $55. Hope that helps! And we do hope to see you at one of our adoption locations soon! The shelter pups would love to spend time with you!

Q:

Is there an Age or weight limit for the spay deal? thanks, Mike P

Mike P.  asked on  Jun 3, 2013

A:

Hi Mike! Dogs must be 2 months old and at least 2 pounds to qualify for surgery. While it doesn't happen often, we do sometimes turn away older patients that our veterinarians deem too high risk for surgery. If that happens, you'll be able to contact Groupon and receive a refund! If you have any other questions, let us know!

Q:

Hi ~ I have 2 chihuahua dogs, so I have couples of questions regarding your neuter procedure deal 1. My first dog is about 14 months old, so is $45 neuter deal included everything? Is there any extra fee on medications, ICU recovery fee or blood works? We just don't want to be surprised by other extra fees when paying. 2. My other puppy is about 8 months old but his balls are not dropped. We could feel them but according to other vet doctor, a surgery seems like the best option. So is the $45 deal covered for this case? And in case it is not covered, how much will you charge us for the procedure? Should we bring him in advance to take a look at first or we can just make appointment for him for the surgery? Thank you so much :)

Tramy N.  asked on  Jun 2, 2013

A:

Hi Tramy! Thanks for reaching out! For your 14-month-old dog, yes, the $45 deal includes EVERYTHING - pre-surgery exam, IV fluids, pain medications, e-collar, etc. Per the fine print in the Groupon, all pets must be up-to-date on vaccines when they arrive for surgery and provide proof via vaccine records from their vet. If your pet isn't up-to-date on vaccines, you may purchase them at the time of surgery. It sounds like your 8-month-old would need a cryptorchid neuter. There is an additional charge of $10-$20 (determined on a case-by-case basis). We perform cryptorchid neuters all the time, so we don't need to see your little guy before he comes in for surgery! If you have any other questions, just let us know!

Q:

Adopting a dog is a very special process, finding just the right dog, making the perfect connection... I went through it once, but sadly my amazing friend has passed... now I'm in the middle of the very slow process of finding a new dog... what if I buy this Groupon but then I don't find the 'right' dog in time? What if I keep searching until Aug, but still don't find the right dog to adopt? Will the Groupon be refunded? Also, what if the "right" dog for me is 10 mos old? Or 5 mos old? I don't understand the 1 year rule. The adoption fee for dogs under 1 year can still be less than $250 so I don't understand the difference? If it IS more than $250, would we be able to just pay the difference (above the $250) & still use the groupon? Or if not, again, would the groupon be refunded if I found one under 1 year old?

Brian A.  asked on  Jun 1, 2013

A:

Hi Brian! We're so sorry to hear about the loss of your pet. We totally understand that finding the right dog takes time. The $55 purchase of a Groupon would cover the full adoption fee for any dog 1 year or older through August 31, 2013. Dog adoption fees range from $105-$250, and your Groupon purchase would cover that cost completely, if you take advantage by 8/31/13. During the summer months, the shelter gets really, REALLY full, and dogs a year old and up have a harder time finding homes. If you fall in love with a pet younger than 1 year old, you can either request a refund from Groupon OR use use your Groupon as a "coupon" at its face value, and take $55 off the adoption fee of a dog younger than 1 year (i.e. if the regular adoption fee for a 5-month-old dog you're interested in is $155, you can take $55 off that adoption fee using your Groupon, and only pay $100). We receive more than 200 animals each and every day, and new animals are always being made available for adoption, so we don't think you'll have a problem finding the perfect pet by August 31, but if you do, you can keep your Groupon voucher and redeem it at its face value ($55) when you're ready to adopt.

Q:

Can the $55 adoption fee be applied to a cat adoption?

Kathleen G.  asked on  Jun 1, 2013

A:

Hi Kathleen! The $55 adoption fee is only for dog adoptions. We are running a Cat Adoption special during the month of June for Adopt A Shelter Cat month - $30 adoption fees on all cats 6 months and older! For more information on that special, visit us online at www.animalfoundation.com/sidekick/! You don't need a Groupon to take advantage of that deal! Let us know if you have any other questions!
