MEDICAL CONDITIONS:

If your pet requires medical attention while in our care, we will make every attempt to contact you to inform you of the situation. If we are unable to contact you at the emergency number provided, your pet will be treated as we deem necessary either at our on-site veterinary facility or at the neighboring emergency clinic depending on the nature of the condition. We are happy to provide an allowance of up to $300 for any accidents, injuries or illnesses that occur as a result of staying at our facility. The pet’s owner will be responsible for any medical charges over and above this amount or if the condition is deemed to be unrelated to their stay with us. This allowance will also provide appropriate medications should your pet develop problems from environmental or dietary changes during their stay or within 7 days of discharge. We take great care so that these problems won’t occur. Despite our best efforts, however, sometimes issues like vomiting, diarrhea, coughing and sneezing may be noticed.

ABANDONMENT:

Please notify us if there is any change of plans in your pet’s scheduled release date. If you do not notify us of a change in your pet’s departure date or we are unable to reach you or your authorized agent for a period of 14 days after your pet’s scheduled release date, we will consider your pet abandoned. Please be advised that the pet owner will be responsible for the fees accrued and any other fees or legal services incurred by the facility as a result of the abandonment.

GROUP ACTIVITIES:

Our outdoor exercise area has small enclosures for private activities in addition to large, open, fenced areas. We will take every precaution when evaluating a pet’s potential for safely interacting with other pets. Pets can also be leash-walked only if owners prefer this option. Please notify us at check-in if your pet has a history of not playing well with others.
