The Returns Process

1. Contact Us

If on receiving your order you are not absolutely happy with your purchase or we have delivered the wrong product or a faulty product, please email us at petdepotza@gmail.com or call us on 0815277894 immediately.

2. Return the Item(s)

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail but sometimes we get things wrong. If we have delivered an incorrect, faulty or expired item to you, we will arrange to collect and replace or refund the item, at our cost, as quickly as possible.

If you are wanting to return an item because it is unpalatable to your pet, doesn't fit your pet or you have changed your mind and don't want it any more, you will need to arrange to return the item, at your own cost, to our office at 8 Viooltjiestreet, Blomtuin, Bellville, 7530.

We reserve the right to charge a 10% administration fee for returned orders should the returns process incur significant administration expenses.

3. Receive a Replacement or Refund

If the return is due to an error on our part, we will replace the item or process a refund (where available*) as quickly as possible after receiving the returned product. A refund will typically take a maximum of 10 working days from the date of receiving your returned item, and we will notify you by email when the refund has been processed. Unfortunately, we can't send you a proof of payment as this is typically handled by a third party payment processing partner. * IMPORTANT NOTE: Any orders paid for by EFT cannot be refunded into your bank account as a result of fraud risk. Instead, an online gift card can be offered for the amount of the refund value.

4. Repairing an Item

If your product is out of its warranty period, you will incur shipping and repair costs. There will be a minimum fee of R100 to collect and return it to you. The amount you pay will be based on your collection and delivery location. If the product is still under warranty, the collection and return costs will be on us.

Any repairs not covered by warranty will be quoted on for your approval, and we will require payment before any work is done.

5. Hills 100% Money Back guarantee

We will accept claims for the following reasons:
• if the pet refuses to eat the food.
• if there is visibly something wrong with the food or packaging that was not caused by incorrect storage after opening.
• in the unlikely event that a pet parent believes that the food has caused harm to their pet.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept claims where:
• almost all the food has been used.
• the wrong food was purchased and the bag opened.
• the food has expired.
• the bag or food has been damaged after purchase.
• the pet has passed away and there is no longer use for their food.
• there is an obvious abuse of the guarantee on the part of the client.
