We do, however, kindly ask that as soon as you know you don’t need your visits please notify us immediately.
EXTREME WEATHER POLICIES / RECOMMENDATIONS
If a hurricane or tropical storm is projected to make possible landfall in the vicinity of our area Animal Admiration will contact active clients. Regular daily visit clients will not take place until “all clear” has been given by state and/or local authorities. For those clients who are traveling, we will contact client and/or emergency back-up to advise of the situation. Arrangements should be made for that contact to meet the sitter and retrieve a key and animals turned over to that contact.
Another plan, especially for cats would be for us to leave extra food, water, and litter down. When possible move items upstairs as well as having items downstairs. For dogs it is possible to arrange extra food and water. Your sitter will give a nice long energy burn off and potty break before the expected landfall.
In an effort to help the customer, our staff will secure as much as possible outside your home to keep it safe. Such as gathering things under the patio close to the house (flip chairs and patio tables if possible) or bring things inside the home or garage.
Animal Admiration recommends you have an extra supply of any medications for your pet as well as food if you are leaving during the hurricane season.
Everyone understands that a hurricane event (or even a “close call”) creates tremendous anxiety. It is never easy and many decisions are very difficult. However, we must be prepared to act quickly and intelligently in accordance with well designated policies and procedures. Stay tuned to local weather stations as these types of storms can change directions quickly. The singular purpose of this policy is to protect client’s pets, home and our staff.
Please note should a hurricane make landfall, flooding, etc while your home and pets are in our care Animal Admiration is not responsible for any damage or injury to your home or pet(s) due to Mother Nature.
