To ensure your pet sitter has access to your house to care for your pets, we recommend you maintain a lock box with two sets of door keys on the outside of your home. The box may be attached to your door, or railing, or another location easily accessible by your pet sitter. It must have a combination lock. Lock boxes are available from Pet Assist for a $35 deposit (refundable up to one year).
If you prefer not to use a lock box, you may provide us with two sets of keys; one for the pet sitter and one to keep on file at the office in case of emergency.
Please provide two sets of keys. A backup set is necessary in case a key should break or your pet sitter accidentally locks themselves and your pets out of your house. Should this occur and you have not provided Pet Assist with backup keys, we will call a locksmith. There will be a minimum $125 fee for this service. In addition you will be charged for the time the Pet Assist pet sitter has to remain with your pets. This fee is subject to increase on holidays and weekends. Please test all keys; making sure they work.
Please have keys ready at the Get Acquainted Visit. There will be a $20 fee if another trip to pick-up keys becomes necessary. Pet Assist can have duplicate keys made for $12 per key.
To keep the cost of our small pet sitting service down, Pet Assist does not maintain an accounts receivable department. Please pay for your pet sitting service when registering. We can email a link for secure online payment (MasterCard, Visa and Discover accepted). Payment may also be made by check or money order and mailed directly to the main office. Make checks payable to "Pet Assist, Inc" and mail to 2 Albemarle Rd, Norwood, MA 02062. When payment is received pet sitting reservations will be confirmed.
Should unforeseen circumstances arise: heating system failure, power outage, etc., you, as our client, understand that Pet Assist Inc. is acting in your interest to the best of our ability. You will be responsible for any fees that result from unforeseen circumstances.
This Agreement is subject to force majeure, including without limitation, accidents, acts of God, illness, storm, weather conditions, orders or acts of military or civil authority, national emergencies, insurrections, riots, wars, or other delays beyond the reasonable control of Pet Assist Inc. Neither Pet Assist Inc. nor the pet sitter shall be held responsible for reasonable delays caused by such events, but shall use reasonable efforts under the circumstances to avoid or remove such causes of non-performance.
Medications will be administered to your pet according to your written instructions. Medications are charged at a rate of $3 per administration.
Should your pet run out of food or urgently need any supply Pet Assist will purchase it. You will be responsible for the cost of items purchased plus a $25 fee per shopping trip.
In the event of a medical emergency we will transport your pet to your veterinarian if possible or to another open veterinary clinic. You, as our client, understand that Pet Assist Inc. is acting in your interest to the best of our ability. In this situation there will be a $50 emergency medical charge plus an hourly rate for a Pet Assist pet sitter to transport and remain with your pet at the veterinary clinic. You will be responsible for any and all veterinary charges. We will make every effort to have the veterinarian bill you directly.

For the safety of our small pet sitters, your service may be canceled in the event of inclement weather. You will be notified in the event that this becomes necessary. We will make every effort to get to your pets as soon as it becomes safe to drive. You will not be charged for visits which are canceled due to inclement weather.
In the winter months please make sure your walkways are clear of snow and are sanded so your pet sitter can safely get to your pets. If you are going to be away make certain someone will plow, shovel, and sand as needed.
