The Adopter/s hereby agrees to adopt the above listed Pot Bellied piglet(s) from Misti Rose Ranch. In the unlikely event that any harm should come to the piglet/s and the piglet/s become unavailable do to an illness, injury or death while still in the possession of Misti Rose Ranch, Misti Rose will issue a full refund. For ALL other circumstances the payment and/or deposits are non-refundable. Once you have received and signed for your piglet/s, Misti Rose and Misti Rose Ranch relinquish all responsibility as the piglet/s is legally yours.
PIGLETS LEAVING THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:
It is the Adopter/s responsibility to provide Misti Rose with advanced notice if a Health Certificate or any other documents or tests are required to bring a piglet/s into your state.
*For piglets flying via air carriers, Misti Rose will research which tests are required.
Every state has their own laws governing what tests and documents are required.
Misti Rose is not responsible nor can be held liable for persons choosing to refuse the required testing or a Health Certificate crossing state lines.
In most cases health certificates are only valid for 30 days. When piglet/s are transported via air cargo the Health Certificate is only valid for 10 days. It is the Adopter/s responsibility for all costs incurred for obtaining the health certificate, documents or tests. The Adopter/s will be provided with a receipt from the Veterinarian. If the Adopter/s fail to pay for/pick up the piglet/s within the time parameters of the validity of the Health Certificate, the Adopter/s will be responsible for the additional expenses incurred for obtaining an additional Health Certificate, document or test.
It is the Adopter/s responsibility to know the proper paperwork and required tests for a piglet/s entering their State. It will be the Adopter/s responsibility to notify Misti Rose with any paper work or tests that will need to be done. Misti Rose and Misti Rose Ranch shall not be held liable for any lack of paper work or improper paper work if the buyer failed to notify Misti Rose of the proper documents needed. Improper paperwork can lead to the confiscation of your precious piglet/s. Some states are very strict about their policies. It is YOUR responsibility to check your local zoning laws to be sure you are allowed to have a Pot Belly Pig. www.petpigzone.com is a website that can help with changing your zoning laws.
To the best of our knowledge and ability the piglet/s adopted are in good health and free from genetic defect.
Even though the piglet/s will leave in good and healthy condition, Misti Rose and Misti Rose Ranch can not guarantee the health of the animal if it is shipped via common carrier with other livestock or animals. If the buyer chooses not to have a Health Certificate Misti Rose/Misti Rose Ranch can not be held liable. All airlines REQUIRE a health certificate. It is not abnormal for piglet/s to have diarrhea from the stress of transporting. Be sure that the piglet/s are well hydrated. Be sure to bring a bottle of water with you to the airport. There will be a dish in the pet carrier. Have Gatorade/pedialite on hand. If the symptoms persist more than 48 hours contact a Veterinarian. Switching foods can cause diarrhea as well. If you feel that you have a problem with the piglet/s purchased, please contact Misti Rose immediately. Misti Rose will do the best to help you over the phone. (612-290-7539) We do not give cash refunds. Misti Rose/Misti Rose Ranch will not be responsible for any Veterinarian and/or any other expenses incurred after the piglet/s leave the possession of Misti Rose.
MALE Piglets: All male piglets will be neutered by my Veterinarian at 6 weeks of age. I DO NOT sell breeding animals.
FEMALE Piglets: All female piglets MUST be spayed by 6 months of age for the safety and health of the female. If you do not have your female spayed a $500.00 breeding charge will be added to the total cost of the piglet. You must send a receipt of her spay operation to Misti Rose, PO Box 74. Dent, MN 56528. I DO NOT sell breeding animals.
SHIPPING AND TRANSPORTATION: The Adopter/s is responsible for all costs involved in shipping/transporting of the purchased piglet/s including the shipping carrier and supplies. The Adopter/s do have the option of sending their own carrier in advance. The adopted piglet/s must be picked up or delivered on the agreed upon date. If the piglet/s are not picked up or delivered on the agreed upon date, and if the Adopter/s have not contacted Misti Rose/ Misti Rose Ranch for further arrangements, the piglet/s will be placed back up for adoption 3 days after the agreed upon delivery date and all monies will be forfeited.
The Adopter/s will be responsible for arranging any common carrier transportation. Misti Rose will arrange air transportation. Air transportation will depend on flight availability. Most flights only allow 2 animals per flight. Most airline carriers allow 2 animals per crate. Weather restrictions can cause delays in transportation time. Misti Rose/Misti Rose Ranch will not be liable for any expenses incurred to the Adopter/s due to flight cancellations. Misti Rose/Misti Rose Ranch will not reimburse the Adopter/s for fuel, accommodations, meals or any other expenses. Misti Rose/Misti Rose Ranch will notify you immediately of any flight delays or cancellations.
A personal or business check will be accepted for a deposit. All checks will have a 14 day hold period. All checks must clear the bank prior to delivery/pick up of the piglet/s. A personal or business check may be made for final payment of the piglet/s if sent in advance and the 14 day hold time has been observed. Again, all checks must clear the bank prior to delivery/pick up. A personal or business check will NOT be accepted as final payment on the day of delivery/pick up. If you are concerned about the payment arriving in a timely fashion it is suggested to mail your check via Priority Mail. All checks will be subject to a $25.00 NSF service fee. If the check is returned there will be an additional $25.00 RCK service fee.
Cash, money grams, cashiers checks and travelers checks are accepted. Due to counterfeit money orders, a 7 day hold time will be placed on the money order.
