Terms and Conditions

Our Goal

Our ultimate goal is to get you your animals ALIVE! We bring a lot of shipping experience to the table, but ask that you guys give your animals the consideration they deserve when picking up and unpacking your order. We don't have policies to be difficult, but many of the animals we ship are rather fragile, especially invertebrates, and the time frames we ask people to follow is what they can safely withstand in the stress of shipping any time of year. 

Heat packs are designed to keep your animals warm when its cooler outside (under 45 degrees F). However, when these heat packs are in a room temperature environment, they can very quickly dehydrate and overheat your pets, which can quickly decline their health. 

Cool packs are designed to keep your animals cool when its excessively warm outside (over 85 degrees), and when placed indoors can too create an environment for your pets that is hazardous. These are the reasons we have our "2 hour rule". 

Note: If something comes up last minute let us know ASAP. We work with you guys because life happens sometimes, but we can't cover every situation in our terms so please just contact us if something comes up last minute. - EU Team
