Services. Red Barn Pet Retreat (“Red Barn”) provides dog boarding, daycare, grooming and are able to accommodate additional special services upon request.

Red Barn reserves the right to immediately change your Pet(s)’ type of boarding, daycare or grooming needs if we believe it is necessary to protect the health and well-being of your Pet(s), other pets, or our staff, and Owner agrees to pay any additional costs associated with the change. We will exercise reasonable judgment as we provide the Services.

Payment for Services. You agree to pay us for the Services we provide to your Pet(s) during each visit at the rates set forth at the start of such visit. Prices are subject to change without notice and seasonal rates may apply.

Payment will begin on the day and time you leave your Pet(s) and continue until the day and time you pick up your Pet(s).

If you do not pay your bill in full at check-out, Red Barn is required to return your Pet(s) to you at the time of check-out. You understand, however, that you will remain liable for all charges incurred during your Pet(s)’ stay, and Red Barn reserves the right to collect any unpaidbalance.

Pets not picked up on Departure Date. If Owner does not pick up your Pet(s) at the agreed upon date and time you hereby authorize us to continue to provide the Services as set forth in this Agreement at your expense. If Red Barn determines, at its sole discretion, that an extension of Services is required, payment in full may be required prior to extending such Services. Notwithstanding the law, we will follow the Pet Abandonment procedure. Daycare Pet(s) will be converted to boarding services if the Pet(s) has not been picked up within lobby hours and you shall pay the expense.

Pet Abandonment Procedure. Unless otherwise required by applicable law, if you fail to pick up your Pet(s) by the designated time all services will stop with the exception of medication administration necessary to ensure Pet(s) health and safety and basic boarding services (water, food, relief time & shelter). We will attempt to contact you by telephone and/or writing using the information you provided, advising you that if your Pet(s) is not picked up within a reasonable time period, your Pet(s) will be deemed abandoned and that we will deliver the Pet(s) to a third party adoption partner, Animal Control, or other similar agency. You understand that you may lose ownership of your Pet(s) under these circumstances.

Check-In and Check-Out. The lobby is open for check-in and check-out during regular business hours (Monday through Friday: 6:30 am to 7:00 pm; Sat. 8 am to 6 pm; and Sunday 9 am to 6 pm., and modified Holiday hours).

 

Daycare Pet(s) check-in or checked-out after Red Barn’s lobby hours will be charged an additional fee of $18.

 

Check-in time for boarders is 2:00 pm or later Monday thru Sunday and Red Bard will have modified Holiday times. Check-out time for boarders is 1:00 pm Monday thru Sunday and Red Barn will have modified Holiday times. Any boarding Pet(s) checked-in or checked-out outside these hours will be charged an additional fee of $18.

We may require government issued identification before releasing the Pet(s) to ensure we only release your Pet(s) to you, your Emergency Contact.
