Posey Humane Society aims to place animals in forever homes. It can be difficult for an animal to make a transition to a new home only to be brought back to the shelter, so we encourage you to consider your next pet carefully.
Your new pet needs time to adjust. A rule of thumb is it takes about three weeks for a new pet to get used to their new home, the people in it and their new daily routine. It takes a new pet around three months to fully be comfortable and settle into their new life. We ask that you give these pets a chance and let them acclimate to their new surroundings before making the decision to return a pet.
However, we do understand things don't always work out and if you find your new pet not to be a great fit, please reach out to us. We ask that you do not re-home your pet or surrender to any other shelter. Whether it's been a couple months or several years, we ask that you return the pet back to us!
