Contract
Below you can view the details of my contract. I require a hard copy of your signed contract in my hand at the time of or within 7 days of a deposit being made on any joey(s). I also require a photocopy of your state/federal issued license/permit/identification card with your contract. I will provide you with a digital copy of your signed and completed contract VIA Email to keep for your own records. You are welcome to store this digitally or print it out.

Entering a contract entails the release of private information to one another for both parties. Neither breeder nor purchaser are to share or release any personal information or contact details with any outside source or third party without prior consent of the other party member. This is to ensure privacy of each members personal information.

All buyer must be at least 18 years or older. If you are buying for your child, please look elsewhere as I do not advise sugar gliders for children. They can be noisy, require a special diet and a great deal of time and care. My contract is designed for the primary caregiver and owner of the glider, if you buy a glider and transfer ownership to a friend, family member or child that is considered a breach of contract and legal action can and will be taken.

If you are purchasing a sugar glider from me, I will provide you with the contract and mailing address before you make your deposit.
