Pet Care Cancellation Policies

Our pet care cancellation policies help us manage our schedules and allows us time to book new services if cancellations are made.

Many of our clients reserve pet care services in Muncie, Yorktown and Anderson, Indiana area days, weeks, months and sometimes, years in advance. We have pet sitting clients that plan family reunions and vacations around our availability and for these reasons our pet care cancellation policies are an important part of our business. They help us serve pet parents in the most efficient way possible and allows us flexibility with our scheduling.

Note: Changes or visit cancellations to confirmed pet care visits must be updated prior to sit-stay-play starting services or the original invoice amount will be due. We rely on the visit schedule we set forth originally and any deviation from that could cause us to miss visits or visit your home when visits aren’t needed.

Clients booking more than 3 days of services (for any type of service) must send payment to the office to reserve their visits. Payment options include: PayPal, Chase Quick Pay, cash or check. Openings will not be held without payment.

We’ll confirm payment amount when you request your services and you can mail your payment to the address at the bottom of this page.

Again, visits are NOT confirmed until payment is received.
