Illness or Injury: In case of illness or injury, I do hereby give my consent for Hopewell Veterinary Hospital to treat, prescribe for, or operate upon my pet(s) while they are being boarded. The hospital is to use all reasonable precautions against illness or escape of my pet(s), but the hospital will not be held liable under any circumstances on account of the care, treatment or safekeeping of my pet(s) as it is thoroughly understood that I assume all risks with regard to disease or injury, including those associated with aged pets.
Dog Licenses: I understand that by PA state law, all dogs over 3 months of age are required to have a license (available through county of residence). If my dog is not licensed, I understand that I am responsible for payment of the fine and costs (at least $300) that may be charged for my pet in the event that Hopewell is auditted for dog licenses during my pet's stay. Our kennel is inspected by the state of Pennsylvania twice a year and dog licenses are checked at that time.
Abandonment: Should circumstances arise that my pet(s) remain unclaimed after the date which I have stated as the pick-up date, I understand that written notice will be mailed. Fourteen days after such written notice, the pet(s) will be considered abandonded. It is further understood that such action will not relieve me of paying the costs of all your services, including the cost of boarding.
Personal Items: I understand that Hopewell Veterinary Hospital does not allow personal items other than food or medication to be left with my pet(s). Hopewell Veterinary Hospital is not responsible for any such items. For the safety of your pet(s), we do not allow choker or prong collars to be left on dogs.
