Shipping and Returns
We value our privacy and we value your privacy.
We are selfish - we do not share information.
We do not, and will never - sell, lend or rent our customer information to anyone.
Your address, telephone number, email address and ALL your information is safe with us.
We do not SPAM our customers.
We do have an occasional email sale, however, we only email the customers that have signed up to receive our emails of these sales and you can subscribe or unsubscribe at your will.
You can trust that your order will be quickly processed and safely delivered. Most orders are processed and shipped within 1 business day.
We can ship products anywhere in the United States using the shipping method of your choice.
When you place an order we will estimate delivery dates based upon the availability of your item(s), shipping method selected and your shipments' destination.
Our shipping charges are determined by the total weight of your order and the method of shipping - UPS of USPS - you have chosen.
Any item with free shipping will be shipped by the carrier of our choice.
International orders and all orders outside the 50 States will incur additional shipping charges. If you would like a shipping quote, please email your location (along with a postal code) and the items you wish to purchase to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive a quote within the next business day. All international orders are shipped with USPS International. Customer is responsible for any customs, duties or taxes.
Some products cannot be shipped to international destinations so please submit a message to us from the Contact Us page if you would like to discuss international ordering options
Some products, such as aerosol products, can not be shipped by air and
they are marked by the "ORM-D" Symbol.
We stand behind the quality of all our products.
Unfortunately we have had customers buy items only to use them and return them when they no longer need them, consequently we have created a return policy for all legitimate returns.
If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with a product, simply return it within 30 days from the date of delivery to countrysidepet.com for a no hassle exchange or return. We will replace or refund the purchase price (less any shipping & handling charges if the order is not a countrysidepet.com mistake) by crediting your credit card only. All returned merchandise must be in original unused condition with all manufactured accessories. All warranty cards must be left blank. Original merchandise box must not be defaced or altered in any way.
ALL returns MUST receive a RETURN AUTHORIZATION (RA) NUMBER prior to returning an item. The RA number can be obtained by emailing us at email@example.com. If we receive an item without the proper authorization number, we will NOT issue any type of credit and we will dispose of the product.
Please notify us, by E-Mail only, to obtain a RETURN AUTHORIZATION (RA) NUMBER. Please do not telephone us for a return authorization number - we need the date and item verification that is available only on E-Mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will not accept any returns without a valid RA number.
Purchaser is responsible for shipping to our returns department.
All merchandise that is returned, unless defective or due to our shipping error, is subject to a 15% re-stocking fee. We have found this necessary due to the fees that are charged to the merchant (us) by the credit card companies - not only for the initial charge but for the credits when issued. We can no longer absorb this expense when you change your mind about a product and return it or refuse the shipment. There is no re-stocking fee if you receive a faulty or defective item, and there is no re-stocking fee if we made an error and shipped the wrong item.
We recommend our customers use a form of traceable delivery (tracking number or delivery confirmation). Also when returning an item, it is a good idea to insure the package, we can't be held responsible for lost packages.
All returns that are issued the proper Return Authorization number must be returned within 14 days of receiving your RA number. Refund will not be issued for items returned without RA's or received after 14 days of the RA being issued.
Faulty or defective merchandise:
If an item is faulty or defective, we will replace the item with a new identical item providing the item is returned with a valid RA number within 30 days from the date of delivery. Once the 30 days have passed, you must follow the manufacturer's policy.
