|Payment is due by the first day of care (via Pay Apps, Cash, or Check). If you are financially unable to pay all by the first day, then half is due by the first day, with the remainder paid via a postdated check, dated no later than the last day of care. If care is for 3+ weeks, final payment must be made by the first day of the 2nd week.
NOTE: If payment is not made as noted above, a 10% late fee will be assessed.
|All rates above are for Thurston County residents and are for overnight stays. Add an additional $5/day* for travel if you just want us to do check-ins on your fur-baby/babies throughout the day.
NOTE: *If my fuel costs rise to $6/gallon, I will need to charge a fuel surcharge for check-ins. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
|Add an additional 25% for all other counties serviced in Western WA (listed on the ‘About’ page). Outside of WA, please request a quote.|
|Each visit/stay day is considered one day. For example, the 1st – 5th would be considered 5 days, no matter the start or end times.|
|Extra duties such as watering large gardens, cleaning up after non-house broken pets, etc, please add an additional $5/day/duty.|
|Unless you give us 7 business days notice, if you have to cancel your fur-baby/house sitting needs, for whatever reason, there will be a $25 cancellation fee charged. I apologize for this, but if we’ve booked you, we may have had to turn others away due to lack of availability.|
|Bad Check Policy: A $50 fee is assessed on all returned checks. All fees and care charges are due promptly and must be paid via Pay Apps, Money Order, Cashiers Check, or Cash.|
|Please make sure your vet is aware that DB-Designs will be taking care of your fur-baby/babies, and that you have arranged payment with your vet should a need arise to bring your fur-baby/babies to the vet.|
