Terms and Conditions
Drop off/Collection: All arrivals and collections are to be confirmed at the time of booking. In case of unforeseen circumstances, please contact me with your expected new drop off or collection time.

Bank Holidays: rodentstoreptiles is open all year round including Christmas, New Year and Bank Holidays. We accept pets 7 days a week.
Non-collection of pets: If you have not collected your pet within 7 days of the agreed date and we haven’t been able to contact you, we will arrange to re-home your pet and any costs incurred will be your responsibility.
Food: If you are providing your pets with dried food, please make sure you bring enough for the full stay. You may bring any of your pets favourite treats or toys that will make your pet feel more at home. Also, any supplements which you like your pet to have or any medication will be accepted.
Illness: The health of all your pets is very important to us. We will therefore reserve the right to refuse acceptance of any animal that appears to be in ill health on arrival and we feel it may endanger the health of our other guests.

Emergencies: If your pet should become ill or injured while in our care we will contact you and they will receive immediate medical treatment (unless specifically requested by you on your booking form) by the veterinary surgeon requested by you on the booking form, or they will be taken to our vets, Hird & Partners, 2 King Street, Halifax, West Yorkshire HX1 1SR. Any costs incurred would be your responsibility.
Cancellations: All cancellations within 14 days of arrival are charged at 50% of the boarding fee.
Deaths: In the extremely unlikely and unfortunate event that your pet passes away we will contact you immediately to make any arrangements, unless otherwise instructed on the booking form. Any costs incurred will be the responsibility of the owner. Please indicate on the booking form how you would like us to deal with this if the worst should happen. All pets staying with us at rodentstoreptiles are left at the owner’s risk and we will not accept responsibility should your pet become ill or pass away.
