Last-Minute Cancellations (Early Pick-ups)

At Dayton Pet Care, we understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise, and occasionally clients may need to cancel their appointments. However, last-minute cancellations and last-minute early pick-ups can disrupt our operations and affect the availability of our services to other clients. To ensure fairness and maintain efficient scheduling, we have implemented the following policy for clients who cancel last minute on multiple occasions:


1. Definition of Last-Minute Cancellation:

   - A last-minute cancellation refers to any cancellation made within the same day of the scheduled appointment time.


2. Three Strikes Policy:

   - If a client cancels last minute three times within one year, the following actions will be taken:


3. First Offense:

   - On the first instance of a last-minute cancellation, we will send a polite reminder to the client, emphasizing the importance of honoring scheduled appointments and the impact of last-minute cancellations on our operations and other clients. A late fee may apply on first offense if canceled close to the time of drop-off.


4. Second Offense:

   - If a client cancels last minute for the second time within the specified period, we will implement the following measures:

     - The client will be notified of their second offense and reminded of our cancellation policy.

     - A non-refundable cancellation fee of 50% for the remaining days will be charged to the client. This fee should cover the expenses incurred due to the cancellation and help mitigate the inconvenience caused to our business.

5. Third Offense:

   - If a client cancels last minute for the third time within the specified period, the following steps will be taken:

     - The client will be notified that they have reached the third offense and their account will be reviewed.

     - Depending on the nature of your business, you may choose to implement one or more of the following actions:

       a. Suspension of services: The client's access to our services will be temporarily suspended for a specific duration.

       b. Termination of the client's account: The client will no longer be able to book appointments or utilize our services.

6. **Pick-Up Policy**: Owners are expected to pick up their pets on the designated pick-up day as communicated at the time of booking.


7. **Late Pick-Up Fee**: A $25 fee will be imposed for each pet not picked up on the designated day if our facility is over capacity. This fee is to cover the additional care and resources required to accommodate pets beyond our capacity.


8. **Capacity**: Our facility has a limited capacity to ensure that every pet receives adequate care and attention. As such, any delays in pick-up can strain our resources and the well-being of all pets in our care.


9. **Notification of Delay**: If you anticipate a delay in picking up your pet, please notify us as soon as possible. Early notification helps us make necessary arrangements to ensure all pets are adequately cared for.

10. Invoice Due Date/Late Fees


All invoices issued by Dayton Pet Care must be paid by the due date specified on the invoice.


10.1 Late Fee


A late fee of $10 will be applied to all invoices that remain unpaid after the specified due date.


10.2 Notification


Clients will be notified via email or another agreed-upon method of communication when an invoice is approaching its due date and once it has expired.


10.3 Fee Application


The $10 late fee will be added to the total invoice amount immediately upon expiration and will be reflected in a revised invoice.


10.4 Payment of Late Fee


The late fee must be paid in full, along with the unpaid invoice amount, to bring the account back to good standing.

10.5 Communication and Documentation:

   - Maintaining clear and transparent communication with clients throughout the process is essential. All notifications, reminders, and actions taken should be documented for reference and future discussions, if necessary.

11. Flexibility:

   - It is important to exercise discretion and flexibility when implementing this policy. In exceptional circumstances, where cancellations are due to emergencies or extenuating circumstances, you may consider waiving the penalties or providing alternative solutions on a case-by-case basis.


12. Governing Law and Jurisdiction:

   12.1 This Agreement shall be governed by and construed by the laws of the state of Ohio without regard to its conflict of laws principles.

   12.2 Any disputes arising out of or in connection with this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively in the state and federal courts
