Holiday Policy

When determining holiday rates, we take into account whether or not a holiday is a major holiday (government offices and schools are closed) or a minor holiday (only schools are closed). While we enjoy caring for your furry family member, our rates are higher on days when we are leaving our own family gatherings or missing out on travel plans in order to come and care for your pet. As we continue to grow, we strive to keep our prices reasonable and our clients satisfied, even on holidays. Yearly holiday rates will be listed below for your convenience. Thank you for understanding!
