If your pet is receiving medication during your boarding stay, it must be provided in the original veterinary labeled container with instructions. As the owner of the above stated pet(s), I agree to pay any Fees associated with medications that need to be refilled during the time my pet(s) is boarded at this facility.

Statement of Kennel Policy

  • Boarding will be charged on a per night basis
  • Pets must be checked out or in by 4:45 p.m. Monday-Friday. Audubon Veterinary Hospital recommends you drop off your pet early enough to get medications if needed, walked, and settled in. Boarding charges start the day of drop off regardless of check-in time.
  • Discharges after hours or non-business hours are not allowed. If you are late you must pick up the next business day.
  • Pet(s) that are not picked up on the day of discharge, will be charged a late fee unless prior approval has been given. Please call immediately if you will not make your pick up appointment.
  • If we are not notified within 10 days after checkout day, the pet will be considered abandoned and will be handled in accordance with state law.

If personal items are left with your pet, you do so at your own risk and are solely responsible for loss or damage.


I understand Audubon Veterinary Hospital charges for boarding space per night. I agree to pay the rate of boarding in effect on the day my pet(s) is checked into the boarding facility. Payment is due upon checkout unless prior arrangements have been made and approved by Dr. Morgan. If any charges are not paid when due, interest will accrue at 1.5% per month, or the maximum rate allowed by law. All collection expenses, including attorney fees, will be paid by the owner.

This facility cannot guarantee the health of any animal, but pledges to provide appropriate care to all boarders. I agree to not hold this facility responsible for conditions that are unavoidable or any harm to my pet(s) from acts of nature beyond their control, such as hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes etc.
