In general, the rates are based on the number of pets as well as their temperaments. Of course we’ll try to do whatever activities you request within the time allotted – and prioritized by you. Even with cats, we can arrange a longer time frame, such as a regular visit, if your needs require it. Please take the time to read the POLICIES page (drop-down under MORE). They cover fees for late booking, holidays, keys and more.
The first order of business is the initial consult. Of course there is no charge and these last about 30 minutes. The purpose, of course, is for all of us to get to know one another – including allowing the pets to become familiar with us as caregivers. Usually you will have had necessary paperwork emailed to you ahead of time or it can be downloaded from the Contact Us section of the website. We can go over questions and make certain that all of the essential signatures are completed.
Because of its importance this is a required meeting – and it should be scheduled at least 48 hours prior to our service. We request that TWO keys be provided. The keys are held in a lock box in the office. Many decide to leave the keys with us so that repeat visits don’t require a key exchange. That may be something you’d like to consider. A fee for pick-up and drop-off will be added after the first exchange.
PLEASE BE CERTAIN TO CHECK THE POLICIES PAGE!
Now… what do we do – and how long do we need in order to do it??
