Terms and Conditions for Boarding

Our acceptance of your pet(s) for boarding with us is subject to the following terms and conditions. These are for the protection of you, your pets and the pets of other customers. As the health of the animals that stay with us is our main concern, we will turn away customers who cannot produce proof of current vaccinations, and will be unable to refund your deposit.

Please ensure the dates you reserve are correct, as we may be unable to accommodate last minute changes, especially during busy periods.

You will be asked to complete our boarding contract confirming your acceptance of these conditions when you drop your pets off. If you would like to complete the contract before arrival, a printable copy can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. If somebody else will be dropping your pets off, please complete the contract yourself and send it with them.

Deposits are non-refundable. All bookings from new customers will require a deposit. We may at our discretion charge deposits for other bookings including those from existing customers, especially during busy periods.


 

Payment terms

Board is charged  per night, this is subject to pet(s) being collected no later than 11.30am (11:00am for bungalow units) on the final day; collection after this time will result in a further night’s charge being levied.  All boarding fees and any other expenses or charges incurred must be settled prior to pet(s) being collected. Where pet(s) are collected prior to the end of the booked boarding period the full charge for the agreed term will still be payable.
