Even Keel Exotics Purchase Agreement
Even Keel Exotics, a USDA licensed facility, is confident in the health of each of our animals and a licensed veterinarian examines our animals regularly. As a result, we do not offer any type of guarantee on our animals. Exotic animals require a very specific type of care and once an animal leaves our facility we cannot be guaranteed what type of treatment they may receive.
Even Keel Exotics will provide you with care information in regards to the animal that you are purchasing but this is not a substitute for veterinary care. We reserve the right to refuse the sale of any animal if we feel like the purchasing party is unable to meet proper care requirements of that animal.
In the case of shipping, we do offer a live arrival guarantee. If there is a problem with the animal, you must contact us within 3 hours of arrival, there are no exceptions to this rule. If no one is available to take your call, a message must be left stating the exact nature of the situation. There is a of risk of added stress and possible injury involved in shipping an animal on an airplane and by requesting shipping, the buyer acknowledges these risks and any possible consequences to the health of the animal.
Deposits made for animals that are not yet born are non-refundable, except in the case that Even Keel Exotics is unable to provide the animal that was agreed upon in the deposit. If the person placing the deposit fails to obtain proper licensing or permits, or cannot legally own the animal within their state of residence, the deposit will be forfeit. The person placing the deposit has a period of 10 days from first being contacted by Even Keel Exotics, when the animal is available, to make arrangements for pick up or shipping. Failure to make arrangements for shipping or pick up after 10 days after first being contacted by Even Keel Exotics results in a forfeit of the deposit. Deposits cannot be transferred to another animal or litter.
