Master Boarding Agreement

This Agreement and the Supplements referred to apply to all visits by your Pet to Bahay ni Bantay (“BnB”). Unless specified, the terms of this Agreement covers BnB:

  • Services. We agree to provide the specific services (“Services”) to your Pet for each visit as indicated on the Service Card that will be filled out for each of your Pet’s visits. We will exercise reasonable judgment as we provide the Services.

  • Payment for Services. You agree to pay us for the Services we provide to your Pet during each visit at the rates set forth at the start of such visit (collectively the “Charges”). Prices are subject to change without notice and seasonal rates may apply. Charges begin on the day you leave your Pet. BnB check out time is by noon on the Departure Date and additional Charges will be due for late check out. If you do not pay your bill in full at check-out, BnB is required to return your Pet to you at the time of check-out. You understand, however, that you will remain liable for all Charges incurred during your Pet’s stay, and BnB reserves the right to collect any unpaid balance.

  • Reservations. Reservations are accepted but not guaranteed without verification of BnB requirements.

  • Cancellations. If you need to cancel your reservation, please do so at least (2) days prior to your arrival date. BnB reserves the right to charge late cancellation fees.

  • Pet Guardian (PG)*. You must provide an adult, over the age of 18, as your PG. Your PG  must also be someone other than the primary Pet Parent(s) and should not be someone traveling with you if you are leaving town. If we cannot reach you, you authorize us to contact your PG. You agree that your PG shall have your full and complete authority to make any and all decisions, including those related to the health of your Pet and the expenditure of funds, for or on behalf of you and your Pet.

  • Emergencies. In an emergency or natural disaster, every effort will be made to contact you or your PG to retrieve your Pet. You agree that BnB, at its sole discretion, is authorized to transport, and/or to make temporary alternative arrangements to house and care for your Pet until you or your PG can retrieve the Pet. You understand it may not always be possible to safely evacuate your Pet.

  • Check-In and Check-Out. BnB  is open for check-in and check-out as posted at BnB. We may require government issued identification before releasing the Pet(s) as we want to be sure we only release your Pet to you, your Pet Guardian or such other individual(s) designated by you in writing as authorized to pick up your Pet.

  • Pet Health and Behavior. We reserve the right to refuse to accept a Pet at check-in for any reason, including without limit, if it appears to us the Pet is sick, injured, in pain, or that its behavior could jeopardize the health or safety of other Pets or our staff.

    • No Pet can stay with us unless the Pet is healthy and we have confirmation from a licensed veterinarian or approved designee that the Pet has received all vaccinations required by BnB.

    • If at any time your Pet is found to have fleas or ticks, we may provide the appropriate flea or tick removal treatment, and you authorize us to provide such service at your additional expense.

    • We may accept certain older Pets and we may administer routine medication for chronic conditions, but we are not equipped to care for acutely sick Pets or aggressive or biting Pets.

    • You acknowledge that we may contact appropriate authorities if your Pet bites another Pet or any person.

    • You acknowledge and agree that in the unlikely event your Pet becomes ill or injured, or if your Pet has a pre-existing condition which is aggravated by its stay, and requires professional attention we will attempt to notify you or your Pet Guardian at the telephone numbers you provide on the reverse side. If we cannot reach you or your PG, BnB at its sole discretion, may engage the services of a veterinarian and/or administer medicine or give other necessary attention to your Pet, and you authorize us to provide any such service at your additional expense. In cases we believe to be critical, we may take your Pet to the veterinarian first before trying to contact you. If you refuse medical treatment for your Pet, BnB, at its sole discretion, may engage the services of a veterinarian and/or administer medicine to make your Pet as comfortable as possible until picked up by you or your PG, and you authorize us to provide any such service at your additional expense. If we cannot reach you or your PG, we will make healthcare decisions for your Pet based on the recommendations of available professionals.

  • Contact with Other Pets. While your Pet is staying with us, he or she will come into contact with other Pets. Every effort will be made to ensure the safety of our guests by enforcing strict restrictions on Pets as set forth in BnB’s procedures.
