Some items sold by Hero’s Pets cannot be shipped internationally due to import restrictions or size; for example pet food and products containing animal by-products cannot be shipped internationally.


For products shipped internationally, please note that any manufacturer warranty may not be valid; manufacturer service options may not be available; product manuals, instructions and safety warnings may not be in destination country languages; the products (and accompanying materials) may not be designed in accordance with destination country standards, specifications, and labeling requirements; and the products may not conform to destination country voltage and other electrical standards (requiring use of an adapter or converter if appropriate). You are responsible for ensuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from Hero’s Pets, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.

Customs, Duties, and Taxes

Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.

Must I sign for my delivery?

Signature is required for Motor Freight; however, signature is not required for other shipping methods. Thorough inspection must be made upon delivery and all damage noted on the delivery receipt. If an item is damaged, delivery should be refused and Hero’s Pets must be notified immediately. You must save all shipping and merchandise packaging.

May I choose my shipping carrier?

No. You may choose only the delivery method.

Who do I call if my merchandise arrives broken or damaged from the carrier?

If your order is broken or damaged, refuse delivery (if possible) and call Customer Service at 1.303.972.1926. You must save all shipping and merchandise packaging.

Is expedited shipping available on all products?

Expedited shipping is only available on those products that can be air shipped in accordance with shipping service provider requirements. Products exceeding weight or girth limits and products falling under the hazardous materials (hazmat) guidelines for dangerous materials cannot be expedited. These products are duly noted on the product information page.

What is the Free Shipping policy?

*Free Economy Shipping applies to select items at Hero’s Pets as indicated on the product description page. Look for the “FREE SHIPPING!” on qualifying item product pages. Offer valid only for orders shipped within the contiguous 48 U.S. states. May not be valid with any other discount or offer. Terms and conditions of this offer are subject to change at the sole discretion of Hero’s Pets.

Why does “Next Day” or “2nd Day” deliveries sometimes take longer than that to arrive?

Next Day and 2nd Day Air orders placed after 2 p.m. Eastern Time will not be shipped until the following business day. Next day air packages arrive by end of day on the first full business day after shipment, and 2nd Day air packages arrive the second full business day after shipment.
Placing your order very late in the day, after the shipping service provider has picked up their last shipment, is one factor that can affect shipping time. As a rule, you can expect orders shipped Next Day to take 2-3 business days to arrive, and orders shipped 2nd Day to arrive within 3-4 business days.

Are there any shipping restrictions based on delivery location?

*Economy shipping available to the 48 contiguous United States.
*Ground shipping available to the 48 contiguous United States and Canada.
*Air shipments (2nd Day and Next Day) available to the 50 United States.
*Priority Mail available to Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
