Q: What happens if my travel plans change, and I can't be there at my scheduled appointment time?
A: We understand that travel plans change due to the variables involved such as traffic, flight delays, etc. This is not a problem. Just give us a call or text Cindy, and we can choose a new time.
Q: Why do you schedule appointment times?
A: We are a very small and unique facility that cares for your pets 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Appointment times allow us to plan our day and give each guest our undivided attention.
Q: What if I arrive outside of my scheduled time?
A: Obviously, if able, we will accommodate you to the best of our ability at that time. If there is a dog in the tub or we are on a nature walk, you may have to wait 30-45 minutes. We like to have all the dogs out and about with us and in the yard, so you might have to wait while we get everyone put up. You also might find the door locked if we have had to run business or personal errands.
Q: Are there any requirements of me or my pet?
A: All pets must also show proof of current vaccinations. Those vaccinations include Bordetella, DHPP, and Rabies for dogs; and FVRCP and Rabies for cats. And all pets must be parasite free. All pet owners must fill out a few forms of agreement before we can render any services to your pet. There is a page on our website to download and fill out these forms ahead of time if you wish (see Forms tab at the top of the page under Contact ). These forms include the Health Agreement, Boarding Agreement, and Play Agreement.
Q: Do we need to bring anything from home when my pet visits Heavenly Care Kennels?
A: Yes, we require that you bring a collar, lead, and harness (if you have one) for your pet. We provide premium bedding, toys, food, games, food and water bowls, and treats for our guests. You are always more than welcome to bring anything for your pet that will help them be more comfortable while staying with us. If they have a favorite toy, special treats, medication, specific food, etc. please feel free to bring them with you as well.
Q: Do I bring his/her food?
A: The price does include our food being served. We feed Purina Smart Blend, Beef & Rice. Some people prefer to bring their own food from home to keep him/her on the same diet. We do not charge extra to feed the food you bring.
Q: My dog is on medication, is that a problem?
A: No. We can dispense your medications as instructed, and there is no additional charge.
Q: How many times does my dog go out?
A: We let out a minimum of five (5) times per day. First let out starts at 7:00 am and the last let out done by 9:00pm. They are exercised individually on what is best for that particular pet. Every let out consists of us either hand walking on a lead or letting them out to run in the yard.
