We request 2 keys at the consultation so we have a backup for any emergencies that occur. All of our keys are stored in a locked safe and labelled only by the pet(s) name(s). If you would like your keys returned, we can leave them at the residence at the last visit or mail them to the Client free of charge. If you would like the keys dropped off at their residence in person, there is a $10.00 drop-off fee. There is also a $10.00 pick-up fee if we need to travel to the home to pick up keys for future services.
The Client gives Tails on Time the authority to use the services of a locksmith in the event of malfunction of the lock, keys, or automatic door opener and must reimburse us for all costs incurred.
For the safety of your pets and home, no other person is permitted to care for your pets during the service period unless given express permission by Tails on Time. We shall not be held responsible for any injury to, loss of, or medical expenses for pets that have been left under our care.
