Whilst we really hope that you will be completely satisfied with your purchase, should you wish to return any item(s) this must be done within 14 days of you receiving your order and we will aim to make the process as easy as possible for you. Please note that we can only offer the refund if the returned items are in a resalable state. All items must be in their unopened, original packaging with any labels still attached. Sadly, we will be unable to offer the refund if the items are not returned in this resalable condition.
To make a return, please contact email@example.com detailing your order number and the item(s) you would like to return and the reason for the return. This must be done within 7 days of receiving your order. The items must then be returned to Mind the Paws within 14 days of receipt of your order.

Damaged or faulty goods
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours of receiving a damaged or faulty item. Please give your order number, a description of the damage or fault and where possible, a photo or video. This will help us take up a claim with the manufacturers or delivery service as appropriate in a timely manner. Initial postage costs for returns for damaged or faulty goods will be reimbursed to you by your original payment method, if we are unable to exchange the item for you. We will require a return postage receipt in order to process this. We strongly suggest any returns are sent using a tracked service. Mind the Paws will not be responsible for items that go missing in transit whilst being returned and in this instance items will not be refunded.
Due to ever changing stock levels, we are not able to guarantee that we will be able exchange items. If you would prefer to exchange an item rather than return it, please email us at email@example.com to discuss and we will do everything we can to accommodate your request.
