Injuries & Illness: At Fur-Ever Friends Doggie Daycare & More, LLC (known as FF from here on out), we strive to provide your dog with excellent care and a fun experience during their stay. Although animals are supervised at at all times, injuries can still occur while dogs are playing together such as scratches, cuts, or sprained joints. Such injuries are rare, but they happen at all doggie daycares. In addition, while infrequent, dogs can get into fights, even under close supervision. Common areas for bites as a result of these fights are snout, ears, tufts of the neck and paws. At FF, we have procedures to screen dogs for aggressive behavior and we do not allow aggressive dogs to play with other dogs. However, even the friendliest dogs can get into fights with very little or no warning. In addition to injuries, it is possible for dogs to transfer illness such as a upper respiratory infections and kennel cough, even with the required vaccinations and boosters. This is just like a daycare for children where illness such as pink eye and the flu can be transferred from one child to another. Such illness do not occur often and all dogs must have necessary vaccinations to check-in.
Age & Gender: Dogs of all ages are allowed at FF as long as they meet the facility's criteria of vaccinations. All dogs participating in doggie daycare must be spayed or neutered if over 6 months of age.
Abandonment of animals: I understand if I do not pick up my dog by 5 days after the agreed upon pick up date, a certified letter will be sent regarding the animals abandonment. Should the animal not be removed within the specific time, I, the client, hereby relinquish all claims to my animal, but shall not relieve me of my contractual liability of any treatment, boarding or care furnished.
