At our discretion we may stop and end service at any time for a pet that poses a danger to the safety or health of itself, other pets, other people, or the pet sitter. If concerns prevent the pet sitter from continuing service for a pet, you authorize the pet to be placed in a kennel, or previously arranged locale if possible. All subsequent charges, including but not limited to shuttle, kenneling, tranquilizing, treating, accessing, and liability, are to be the responsibility of the pet owner. Depending on the circumstances you may or may not be charged for your pet sitting services.
