I understand that Country Acres Dog Boarding and Grooming LLC charges per day and not by the 24 hour period. I understand I will be charged for each day my dog is boarded and it does not matter when pick up and drop off occurs. I agree to complete payment at time of discharge and that within ten days of notification to above address, my pet will be considered abandoned and will be handled in accordance with Iowa State Law, and this does not relieve me of my financial obligations.

All pets must meet the following requirements:

  • current on DHPP, Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations (1st time boarders if not current these must be done 2 weeks prior to stay)
  • free of external parasites such as ticks, fleas, and mites and up to date on monthly flea medication. Topical or Chewable, no collars beside Seresto, are accepted.
  • free of contagious diseases
  • has not bitten a human within the last 10 days
  • free of parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, and whip worms etc.

I understand that each pet is without supervision at certain times of the day/night at Country Acres. I recognize that there are inherent risks of illness or injury when animals are allowed to be in close contact with one another and away from their normal environment. Such risks include, but are not limited to, problems resulting from stress of a new environment, play and canine cough (doggie colds).

If the animal becomes ill or hurt, or Country Acres suspects animal is ill or hurt, the owner shall be notified at once, if possible, or such attempt shall be made to so notify the owner, and if owner does not immediately inform Country Acres regarding measures to be taken or if the state of the dog’s health requires quick action, the right to all a veterinarian or to administer medicine or to give advisable attention within the discretion of Country Acres, and such expenses shall be promptly paid by owner.

All dogs are cared for by Country Acres Dog Boarding and Grooming LLC without liability on Country Acres Dog Boarding and Grooming LLC’s behalf for loss or damage from disease, theft, fire, death, escape, injury, or harm to persons, other dogs, or property by said dog(S), or for other causes. I understand I am able to bring my pets personal items such as beds and toys but Country Acres is not responsible if items are damaged during pets stay.

I fully and forever release and discharge Country Acres Dog Boarding and Grooming LLC and its respective members, managers, employees, agents and insurers and all others involved in the boarding and grooming of my dog (including death), losses, damages, claims (including negligence claims), demands, lawsuits, expenses and any other liability of any kind, of or to me, my dog, or any other person directly or indirectly arising out of or in connection with grooming or boarding of my dog at Country Acres, even if it is due to negligence, injudicious act, omission or other fault of the Released Parties.
