The client agrees to clearly label with their last name any personal belongings brought in with their pet(s). MVVHC is not responsible for any lost and/or destroyed personal belongings and does not guarantee the return of such items.
To qualify for a ½ day on the first day of boarding, the client understands they must schedule their pet’s arrival time for 2:00 p.m. or later. If the arrival time is not specified when the reservation is made, or if the client arrives prior to 2:00 p.m., the client understands a full day of boarding will be scheduled and charged.
To qualify for a ½ day on the last day of boarding, the client understands they must schedule their pet’s discharge time for 11:00 a.m. or earlier. If a discharge time is not specified when the reservation is made, or if the client arrives later than 11:00 a.m. to pick up their pet(s), a full day of boarding will be scheduled and charged. The client also understands these deadlines are not flexible and will be strictly enforced. This is necessary to provide the kennel personnel sufficient time to thoroughly clean, sanitize and prepare boarding accommodations for the next guest.
To ensure and healthy environment for our boarding pets we require written documentation of an examination by a veterinarian within one year of the pet’s stay.

MVVHC provides a high quality adult diet for boarding animals. Clients may bring special diet food for their pet. All pet food brought into the clinic must be in an airtight, re-sealable container. There is no discount for bringing your pet’s own food. In the event of non sufficient food for your pet’s stay, we reserve the right to open and charge you for a new bag of food, if a prescription diet is required, or to feed your pet an appropriate wellness diet for the remainder of the stay.
MVVHC is happy to arrange for after-hours drop-off or discharge of your boarded pet for an additional fee. However, the availability of this service is dependent on the attending animal caretaker’s schedule. If the client opts for this service, fees for all boarding and other services must be paid in advance.
MVVHC will call the client approximately 2 days prior to arrival date to confirm the reservation. Any cancellations or no-shows that occur after the confirmation call will incur a late cancellation fee equal to one day of boarding for each cage reserved. Client agrees to pay all such fees. Should client fail to arrive on the beginning day of the reservation, the entire reservation will be cancelled.
The undersigned shall indemnify MVVHC against any and all expenses, liabilities, and claims by or on behalf of any person or entity arising out of a failure to disclose a communicable or infectious disease, the spread of any disease, or any other injury occurring to the client’s pet(s) while being boarded.
The agreement will remain in effect from this date forward, until such time as the MVVHC Officers change the policy.
We will gladly prepare a written estimate if you desire, (please ask our client relations personnel or doctor). ALL PROFESSIONAL FEES ARE DUE AT THE TIME SERVICES ARE RENDERED. There will be the maximum lawful service charge for any check returned unpaid. Any balance over 30 days will receive a $5.00 monthly repeat billing charge and accrue interest at 1.75% per month (21% per year). Any balances referred to a collection agency will incur a 40% collection referral fee.
To prevent the spread of infectious diseases, all hospitalized/boarding patients must be current on all vaccines and free from internal and external parasites. The signature below authorizes this level of preventive care and the appropriate charges will be assessed in the discharge invoice.
