Pet Agreement Cancellations

Professional Pet Sitting Etc

Service Agreement

Cancellations and Changes to Reservations

 

The VERY first time you log into your profile, you MUST agree to our complete Service Agreement before creating your Online Profile and making a reservation,

After that, every time you make a reservation, you are agreeing to our entire Service Agreement, Policies, Procedures and Cancellation Policies.  You can review everything any time you wish, 24/7. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

 

CANCELLATIONS/CHANGES – 

Please, update your online reservation as soon as possible for all cancellations/changes.  If it is less then 14 days, please backup with an email and/voice message.

ALWAYS give as much notice as you possibly can, so that we can have enough time to fill in your slot(s) with another client

It is very rare for clients to cancel.  We understand if you need to cancel a reservation, plans change, emergencies and illness happen.

Our schedules fill up fast and each of our pet sitters only have just so many slots in their day.

If you cancel, this can mean that a sitter will lose out on work.

This also means that when those slots are FULL, we must turn other clients away who need and want pet care

With this is mind, we have needed to implement our cancellation policy below.

These time frames, give us enough time to ensure we can fill in your empty slot on our schedule.

Many Cancellations for Vacations/trips –

two or more reservations cancelled within a 12 month period

As mentioned above, It is very rare for clients to cancel.  We understand if you need to cancel a reservation, plans change, emergencies and illness happen.

Our schedules fill up fast and each of our pet sitters only have just so many slots in their day.

If you cancel alot, this can mean that a sitter may lose out on work.

This also means that when those slots are FULL, we must turn other clients away who need and want pet care

Our suggestion –  

  • is if you have cancelled more then twice in the past 12 months
  • be respectful of the other clients who may need pet care and may be turned away, also to our pet sitters who really enjoy their work and need their paychecks
  • make your reservation within 7-14 days of your start date
  • you may run the risk of us not being able to help you with pet care
  • but you will be definite on your dates and what you need
  • plus you won’t have to worry about a cancellation fee because you will definitely know what you need.
  • For clients that do need to frequently cancel, credit cards will be charged before confirmations are sent.  See cancellation policies above.

 

Regular Ongoing Schedules

If you are on our schedule  for mid day service on a regular schedule, for 1-5 days per week, for example every Wednesday or every Tuesday/Thursday, or every Monday through Friday, if you need to stop regular service for whatever reason, we need a 30 day notice to fill in your regular mid day slot.

 

Home Early from trip

If you have a vacation/trip reservation and come home early, there is no refund/credit given.

 

Late Cancellations

If you have cancelled late and we are able to fill your reservation with another reservation, you may receive a credit for future services.  If your credit card has been charged, you will ONLY receive credit for future services.

If we are unable to fill your reservation, you will not receive a credit for future services.

As always, the more notice you give us, the more time we may be able to fill your slot to give you a credit for future services.

 

Cancellations due to a storm of any kind

If our OFFICE cancels your visit due to an extreme storm for the safety of all involved, you will receive a credit for that visit.  Generally, this will pertain to a mid day visit where you will be home or will be home soon that day. You will be notified via email and/or our Facebook business page (make sure to like our page for all notifications).

If you cancel due to a storm and our OFFICE has NOT cancelled, our regular cancellation policy will be in effect.

 

Credits and Refunds

Again, all credit/refunds are ONLY given for future services.

NO refunds given on credit cards, check, or any other way.

Compliance with credit card companies & Chargebacks

We are in compliance with all credit card companies  that we will offer a refund for future services for those giving enough notice as mentioned above.

If you insist on a refund on your credit card, there will be a 50% of total reservation as a cancellation fee applied.

Any and All chargebacks will incur a fee of $150.

We prefer to try to work things out with you rather than a chargeback.  So please talk with us.

We do not confirm cancellations
