Graced Kennel Maintenance Fee
As COVID-19 continues to have a dramatic impact across the globe, our top priorities at Graced Kennel remain the health and safety of the pets you entrust to our care, in addition to the health and well-being of our employees, loved ones, and you, our valued clients.
While there have been no reported cases of coronavirus in pets, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that anyone who is sick with COVID-19 should restrict contact with pets and other animals. Just as you would restrict contact with other people if you are sick, the CDC in the link above, recommends that owners seek assistance in caring for their pets. We will be closed on Tuesday 3/17 for staff training and deep sanitation of building especially areas where people frequent such as our lobby .We will remain open starting on Wednesday and here to assist you as you need.
We know that keeping pets on a routine, including regular exercise and socialization, plays a significant role in maintaining their overall health. We want to encourage you to continue to enrich your pets daily life with extra activities to keep their mind and body active. We will be offering additional services such as nature walks, treasure hunts and agility activities at a discounted rate in leu of group activities. We will also be posting activities to do at home with your pet for those of you that choose not to come during this time.
We are taking special precautions to keep our staff and clients safe
and healthy by adding additional cleaning and steps to the care we already
provide. Please note that we use Rescue disinfectant made by Virotec which
provides protection from the spread of COVID-19. Please see the link below for
information on the products we use in our facility. We will be adding extra protocol
such as wearing gloves, disinfecting leashes between pets, wiping pets down at
arrival and adding a valet service to minimize human contact. Our staff is
adding extra hand washing stations and providing personal hand sanitizer to
each employee. We are asking for your patience as our staff adjust to the added
safety procedures and protocol we are putting in place. We will continue to be
transparent and update you as more information comes available for our area. We
will be closed on Tuesday to train our staff on these new procedures.
The COVID -19 virus has caused numerous closures and the need to cancel travel plans across the country. We have made changes to our cancellation policies to accommodate the changes we all are facing. All deposits that have been made for travel from March to May will be credited to your account to allow you to use once all this blows over. Our staff is ready to take those cancellations but it’s important that you contact us in order to receive credit to your account. We are here to assist you and answer any questions you may have.
It's with great thought and guidance from a higher power that we at Graced Kennel have decided to close to the public until April 14th or further notice. We, as many local businesses and families are taking a hard hit from the financial effects of COVID- 19. We feel it is the best interest of the business and the community to close during this time. We are doing this to eliminate as many expenses as possible until income is coming back in.We will be sending out emails with more information to our customers. We will be ready to handle business with our trained staff once it becomes safer to do so and it 's financially safer to do so. We pray for each of you as we all deal with this pandemic. Our amazing staff has dedicated their time and is volunteering to continue to care for the animals that are currently in our care for three local rescue groups. If you are financially able to donate to one of those rescue , it is tax deductible, just specify it's for the care of GK rescues. We are also asking that our dedicated customers think about the following:
Consider this... when the world quiets down and we reach some level of normalcy again you will want to continue to board your animals, take them to daycare and playgroups.... what is happening in the world right now may cause the end of Graced Kennels boarding facility if we don't get now...
so consider my personal challenge here...
How many times (maybe even now) have you joined a gym...pay your monthly fee...and never go...or go infrequently??
How about also doing the same for your favorite boarding facility?
Consider paying a “maintenance fee” to help us survive this financial crisis which is a result of COVID-19.
How about paying a monthly fee of $25, $30 or even $50?? You may ask…how does this maintenance fee help? Your maintenance fee will be used to help keep staff employed and bills paid.
Wouldn't it be worth it to know that your pet will have the level of care you are accustomed to once things have leveled out and the world returns to some normalcy??
