Parcels will be delivered to you at a requested address. Delivery charges apply. During festive seasons, a delivery surcharge of $8.00 may also apply. It is essential that when an order is confirmed, arrangement is made for the deliveryman to complete the delivery at the specified time interval. If for any reason you are not able to allow delivery to complete at the time of delivery or when you have provided an incorrect, inaccurate or incomplete delivery address, we will endeavour to re-deliver, however this may subject to a re-delivery charge of $10.
We cannot be held liable for any damage that is rendered to the good(s) at the advised destination once we have left the premises.

We do not deliver to Jurong Island, restricted airline and cargo areas, BBQ pits as well as locations outside of mainland Singapore except Sentosa Island. Any orders made to the excluded locations will be cancelled.
In circumstances where you erroneously, or otherwise, specify the Region / State of your delivery address as Main Island when it is actually Sentosa Island, you will be liable for the additional delivery costs incurred in making a delivery to Sentosa Island.
Neither we, nor any delivery service that we use shall be liable for any failure to perform, where such failure or delay results from any circumstances outside our reasonable control including but not limited to any fire, flood, explosion, accident, adverse weather conditions, traffic congestion, mechanical breakdown, obstruction of any private or public highway, riot, government act, act of war, terrorism, act of God, or from any industrial dispute or strike whatsoever.
6. Storage & Consumption
We pride ourselves in bringing you pet food in its best condition maintained by their respective suppliers. We are unable to make a warranty as to the length of time for which the food will remain fit for consumption. We do however recommend our pet food and treats to be consumed within 1 month from the date of delivery. We do not encourage pet owners to keep the food beyond the recommended duration. It is the responsibility of the customer to keep the food items in the manner prescribed by the manufacturers.
7. Re-Packaging of Dry Food
Pawfection will offer only vacuum-sealing packing service. The material we use is high-quality food-grade plastic. This is to ensure that we keep the food in the best condition possible after it is removed from its original packaging.
While vacuum packaging preserves clean food prevents bacterial growth, it does not get rid of some bacteria which may have already infested the food while it is in its original packaging. Some bacteria grows in room-temperature, low-acid and low-oxygen environments.
Please be aware that how you store dry food affects your dog’s health. It is the same logic as storage of food for our own consumption.
As much possible, always buy pet food that comes in original packaging. Premium quality pet food are originally packed into special packaging with special inner lining to keep moisture out. Always air-tight seal the bag to slow down food degradation. As much as possible, avoid asking pet shops to repack your pet food. AVA discourages re-packing of imported pet food as it increases the risk of traceability and contamination. You are still highly encouraged by Pawfection to buy reusable air-tight food containers to store your pet food if you really need to have them redistributed into small portions and store them in a cool and dry place.
By requesting for Pawfection to repack your pet food, you agree that we will not be held liable in the event that worms, weevils, beetles or moulds are found in the re-packed food after purchase.
We take all complaints seriously however we ask for patience with factors that may be beyond our control as we cannot be held liable for any such issues.
