Safety and Liability:
All dogs will be required to be on a leash during outdoor walks; Danny’s Pet Care and Pet Sitters Associates LLC is not responsible for damage incurred by pet escaping because of a damaged leash or collar that is incorrectly fitted. All dogs are required to have a collar and tag with the owner’s contact information. In the event of inclement weather or natural disasters, Danny’s Pet Care is entrusted to use its best judgment in caring for pets (for example, days when the temperature is above 90 degrees, dog walks will be limited to a shorter period to protect the health of the dog or dogs as well as the dog walker). Danny’s Pet Care will not be held liable for consequences or costs related to these decisions. In addition, the Owner will waive and release Danny’s Pet Care from any claim for injury, loss, and/or death of Owner’s animal(s) and from any claim for loss and/or damage to owner’s property including, but not limited to, that caused by the Owner’s animal(s).
Veterinarian Care in case of emergency:
Danny’s Pet Care will attempt to administer medications as directed but cannot be held responsible for complications that arise as a result. Excessively shy, aggressive or scared pets with medical problems can be a serious risk. If you have such an animal, this must be thoroughly discussed PRIOR to the services rendered. We don’t medicate diabetic animals that need injections or with any sign of aggression. In the event of an emergency, Danny’s Pet Care will make every attempt to contact the client. In the instance when the client cannot be reached, I authorize Danny’s Pet Care to transport my pet(s) to the veterinarian or emergency animal hospital in the event of their illness or injury and authorize treatment deemed necessary by the veterinarian. Furthermore, I agree to reimburse Danny’s Pet Care for all related costs, including transportation, immediately following the incident. I authorize the vet clinic/emergency hospital to bill the client directly for all treatment expenses incurred during the visit.
By signing below, I, the client agree to the above terms and conditions and am releasing Danny’s Pet Care and its employees of all liabilities outlined above.
