PLEASE READ ALL OF THESE IMPORTANT POLICIES


BOARDING VACCINATIONS


All dogs must have current proof of vaccinations that include:

  • Rabies
  • Distemper/Parvo
  • Bordetella
  • Canine Influenza


Veterinarian provided proof of vaccinations must be provided prior to your dog’s initial stay. Vaccination records can be emailed to [email protected] or faxed to us at (540) 347-8591

Should your pet come in without the proper vaccines, they will be administered at Animal Care Center. You will be charged for the vaccinations plus an exam fee.


BOARDING CHARGES

Boarding charges are calculated by day, similar to human hotels, clients are charged for a full day the day they check their pet in. Early check in before 1 pm incurs an additional $10 fee. Clients who check out by or before our check out time (1 pm) on normal business days will not be charged for that day. Clients who do not check out before 1 pm are charged for the full day. Most clients pay when they pick their pets up, however, you can choose to pre-pay when you arrive. We accept cash, personal checks, travelers checks, debit, visa, mastercard and discover.


RESERVATION CANCELLATION POLICY

Our boarding facility has limited space and is frequently at 100% occupancy. This forces us to turn potential boarders away. When clients pick-up their dogs early, cancel reservations, or change reservations without adequate notice (at least 72 hours), it is frequently too late for us to fill the space that we reserved for them because the boarders that we turned away have already made other arrangements. This causes us to lose a tremendous amount of income. Due to the loss of revenue as a result of no-shows, untimely cancellations, schedule changes, and early pick-ups, we have implemented the following cancellation policies.


EARLY PICK-UPS OR RESERVATION CHANGES

Clients who reserve space that fail to provide us with at least 72 hours notice for cancellation will be charged for three days of their scheduled reservation and/or lose their deposit.  In addition, clients who pick up early without at least 72 hours notice will be charged our regular daily rate for any days that the space reserved remains vacant, or up to the 3 day cancellation notice period. We are sorry that it has become necessary to implement such a strict cancellation policy; however, we cannot continue to incur the tremendous loss of revenue do to untimely cancellations, early pick-ups, and reservation schedule changes.


DEPOSITS

ALL RESERVATIONS MUST BE SECURED BY A DEPOSIT

We require at least 72 hours notice for cancellations. Clients that cancel reservations without at least 72 HOURS NOTICE WILL AUTOMATICALLY FORFEIT THE DEPOSIT
