We ship most items by UPS ground. Some smaller items may be shipped by USPS 1st Class Mail, Parcel Post, or Priority Mail. PetsContained.com reserves the right to choose shipping method.
When You Can Expect To Receive Your Order
The map below shows approximate delivery time for UPS ground shipments, for most of our items, from our distributors warehouse to your area. Most of our items ship out of our two warehouses in Florida and Ohio. However, some items may ship from other warehouses in other states. These items will generally take a few extra days to ship. This is due to the extra processing time required. We will try to keep you informed as to the processing of your order.
April thru June is a very busy time for pet fences and other pet supplies. Order processing during these three months may be up to 48 hours.
Some items ship directly from the manufacturer. These items may take 5-10 business days.
Orders requesting Ground shipping will ship within two business days, (except where noted above) please add this to your estimated delivery time. For example, if you live in Michigan and place an order on Monday and request Ground shipping, your order will ship on or before Wednesday and should arrive three Business Days later.
Orders placed before 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time Monday-Friday that are shipping Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air or 3-Day Select will ship the same day. Orders placed after 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time requesting these shipping options will ship the next business day. UPS does not deliver packages on weekends unless you selected Next Day Air Saturday Delivery. In addition, UPS does not deliver packages on Holidays.
Next Day Air UPS does not deliver packages on weekends except for Next Day Air Saturday Delivery.

UPS charges an extra $12.50 for this service and this will be added to your shipping charges.
