By signing, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the following:
You agree to pay the rate of boarding in effect on the date your pet is checked into the kennel (not the date reservation is made). Rates are subject to change without notice. All boarding fees are based on a per day rate, starting from date of check in up to and including the day of departure. You agree to pay for any additional services requested. All fees for boarding and additional services are due in full upon departure, and must be paid before pet leaves premises. In addition, any expenses incurred by Hickory Kennels on behalf of the pet while in the care of Hickory Kennels are your responsibility and due upon the date of departure.
You understand that extra charges may be added to the bill at the discretion of management for special handling or treatment that is above and beyond routine care. Special handling is defined as services beyond our standard boarding care due to behavior problems, health, or other unexpected care not anticipated at time of check in. You agree to pay all such charges in full at time of departure before your pet leaves the premises.
Any pet remaining five(5) days beyond the designated departure date will be considered abandoned, unless proper notification is received by the kennel. A registered letter will be sent to the above address notifying you that have relinquished your ownership rights if not claimed within five(5) days of the date the letter is sent. This does not relieve you of all costs associated with boarding, caring for and disposition of your pet and you agree to pay all such expenses in full at time of departure before your pet leaves the premises.
You are solely responsible for any and all acts of behavior of your pet at any time within the term and time of the contract. You are financially responsible for any damage done to the kennel premises and/or property by your pet, normal wear and tear excepted.
Hickory Kennels agrees to exercise due and reasonable care and to keep our kennel premises sanitary and properly maintained. Your pet is to be fed properly and to be housed in clean safe quarters which are open to your inspection at any reasonable time.
All pets are boarded or cared for by Hickory Kennels and/or Hickory Veterinary Hospital, Inc. without liability on their part for loss or damage from disease, death, escape, theft, fire, injury to persons, other pets or property by said pet or other unavoidable causes, due diligence having been exercised.
