My goal in providing daycare and boarding services is to provide an environment that makes your pet feel at home. I want your pet to enjoy their stay and have a good time. I do my best to keep your pet happy and to ensure their visit is as stress-free as possible. Not all pets are well suited to the typical boarding facility where they are kept in kennels/cages the majority of the time with limited interaction with humans or other animals and with limited physical or mental activity. I strive to offer a more home-like experience and provide the type of environment I would desire for my own pets! Please review the information below and feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for clarification or with any questions!
Boarding – The rate charged for BOARDING is per DAY (not per night). A DAY is anything over 8 hrs between 12AM & 11:59PM. Anything 8 hrs or less during the same period would be charged a daycare rate. Note: I often discount the rate on the day of pick up depending on the time.
Boarding – Dogs – $20/day Boarding – Cats – $10/day
Daycare – The rate charged for DAYCARE (up to 8 hours) for dogs is $15/day.
The rate charged for partial day DAYCARE (4 Hours or less) for dogs is $10/part day.
Multiple Dog(s) – I will offer a discounted rate per day for boarding multiple dogs from the same household at the same time.
Extended Stay – If booking a stay that exceeds 2 weeks (14 days) I will offer a 5% discount.
New Client – All new clients received a 10% discount off of their FIRST booking.
Referral Program – If a current client refers a NEW client that makes and follows through with a booking, the client that made the referral will receive 1 free day of daycare for 1 dog (up to 8 hrs) or a discount of $15 from their next bill.
Adopted from Kat’s Kritters Rescue – All animals adopted through my Kat’s Kritters Rescue receive a lifetime discount on all daycare and boarding services through Kat’s Kritters Pet Daycare & Boarding.
If you need to cancel, please provide as much notice as possible, preferably at least 48 hrs. Failure to provide adequate notice of cancellation may result in a cancellation fee.
Food/Medication/Specialty (Hypoallergenic) Treats:
You provide your own food, medication, and specialty treats (if required) for your dog/cat. Regular treats are readily available 🙂 If possible, please bring food in a sealed container.
There is no additional charge for administering medication.
Please make sure your dog is wearing a secure collar at the time of drop off and is on leash.
All cats must be in a secure carrier.
Please advise IN ADVANCE if there is any important information regarding health or behaviour that you feel I should know so that I can plan accordingly.
*Please note that at this time I am not able to accommodate boarding or daycare for dogs that have exhibited aggressive behaviour towards other animals.
*All dogs over 8 months of age must be spayed or neutered.
During their stay:
Dogs – My location offers many options for the dogs to have a safe, enjoyable experience. There are multiple fenced areas, including access to a sheltered area so that we can enjoy outdoor playtime even on days where the weather isn’t cooperating. All fencing is secure and is 6 foot high, commercial grade fencing. Dogs will spend time in play groups with other dogs IF they are capable of socializing well with others. Dogs that are trustworthy off leash can also join on supervised walks exploring the entire 8 acre property which includes a large pond. In the house, the dogs have access to the main floor and multiple sleeping and play areas are available.
*Please advise in advance if your pup has problems with other animals (either cats or dogs) so I can plan accordingly.
Cats – Cats are given free range access to a large room with multiple windows. The room is equipped with furniture, scratching posts, toys, litter boxes, etc. They will receive daily attention and playtime.
During your pet’s stay, I will regularly post photo and/or videos to the Facebook page facebook.com/katskritterspetdaycareandboarding. You are also welcome to text message (204-745-7842) and or email for updates.
On the documents you will be required to complete, you can indicate your preference for your dog’s sleeping arrangements. There are a variety of options available.
*Please do NOT bring your dog’s bed or crate. I will provide whatever is needed and have every size of crate imaginable if you prefer your dog be crated.
Drop off/Pick up:
I try to be as flexible as possible regarding drop off and pick up times but do require advance notice of both. *PLEASE BE ON TIME.*
For drop off time, a minimum of 24 hours notice is appreciated. I do not allow for pick ups after 10PM. If you are going to be late for the scheduled drop off or pick up times, please provide adequate notice. If adequate notice isn’t provided, a late fee will be charged.

**Visitors by appointment ONLY.**
There are TWO separate forms that need to be completed (an application and a waiver) for EACH pet and MUST be brought along at the time of drop off. These forms will be emailed to you when you contact me to arrange to book a stay for your pet. Please complete the forms IN FULL. They only need to be completed once and then stay on file! Please review them carefully. *Please note that the physical address on the top of the form is not yet updated to the new location. The physical address is the Sperling address as described above.
