Day Care Policies & Procedures

General Policies Applicable to All:  Rates and policies are subject to change at our discretion and without notice.  For current rates please check "Services & Rates".  Payment for all services is accepted in cash, checks or major credit cards.


Day care Contract:  Each participant in day care must be accompanied with a completed Day Care Registration Contract, which will be updated and signed annually by January 1.  Program Payment Options may be changed annually with contract renewal.


Day Care Hours:  Monday through Friday hours for drop-off and pick-up of day care dogs are any time between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  Saturday and Sunday hours are available by appointment only.


After Hours Service Policy (as it applies to day care):  A service fee of $10.00 will be charged for any pick-up between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.  After 7:00 p.m. your dog will be transferred to the boarding kennels for the night and a boarding charge will be added to your invoice.


Vaccinations Plus:  All dogs must be current on required vaccinations and written proof provided to the kennel.  Iowa Code sections 159.5(11) and 162.16 state documentation must be obtained that the dog has been spayed or neutered, if the dog is over six months of age.


Parasites:  all pets must be free of all external parasites, such as fleas and ticks, and are expected to be on a monthly preventative.  Pets will be checked for these parasites and will be treated at the time of admission, if necessary, and at the owner's expense.


Medication:  Any pet requiring medication will not be charged an administration fee.  Instructions for dispensing medication, however, must be received in writing along with the name and number of the pet's regular veterinarian.


Medical Care:  When you sign the day care contract, you are consenting to emergency medical care in the event your pet(s) become seriously ill.  We will make every attempt to contact you at the emergency phone number provided.  However, if we can not reach you, you can be assured your veterinarian, our on-call veterinarian, or The Animal Emergency Clinic will provide the best possible care for your pet(s).


Permission to publish your pet's picture on our Web site:  When you sign the day care contract you agree to allow Greenbelt Kennels to place your pet's picture on our Web site.  These pictures will be taken during the regular course of day care activities each month and posted to our Web site for the owner (and others) to view.
