How do I pay for service?

We accept Cash or Check. We require prepayment of all services at time of booking which is typically during the complimentary “Meet & Greet” Consultation appointment.

What are your general policies? How does it work?

A complimentary “Meet & Greet” consultation appointment will take place in YOUR home before any pet sitting job begins. This gives us (the sitter) the opportunity to get aquainted with your pets, and the pets get to know us and become familiar. Some pets are friendlier than others, and the ones that aren’t as friendly at first will have that time to sniff and approve of us coming into their territory. During this initial consultation, all forms will be filled out and keys will be provided to us for access while you are away.

All clients will be required to sign a Service Request which outlines exactly what services are being requested, what fees will be charged and the specific dates these services are needed. There is also a Veterinary Instructions and Release form that will be signed in case of an unforeseen emergency while you are away.

Please have a key ready during the initial “Meet & Greet” consultation. All keys are coded and locked in the office. If you decide to use our service on a continuing basis, you can leave your key on file with us for your future convenience. If you prefer to have the key returned after the service, we will do so at our earliest opportunity. We will not leave your key inside your home, in case you are delayed in returning and your pet needs more care. Please call, text or email us when you do return home, so we know you’ve returned safely from your time away and your pets are back in your safe and loving care.
