How will I be billed for services?

If you are a regular midday dog walking customer, you will receive a monthly invoice.  If you are a pet sitting client, you should receive your invoice within 1 week of services.  All invoices are emailed, unless client specifically requests to receive invoices by US Mail.  We do accept payment by Visa or Mastercard.  If you would like to pay by credit card, please call our office with the information or complete and fax the credit card authorization form.  If you have any questions, please contact our billing manager at billing@furgetmenot.com

How do I tip my pet sitter?

Pet Sitters frequently go "above and beyond" by providing more than basic pet care.  If you were provided with great service, it is appropriate to tip your pet sitter 10% of the total bill.  This is a suggested guide only and is not required.  If you would like to tip your pet sitter, you may include the additional amount in your check for payment and we will pass along the surplus to your sitter with your compliments.  You may also mail a separate note to our office and we will ensure your pet sitter receives it.

Cancellation Policy

  • Pet Sitting cancellations: 24-hour cancellation notice is required in advance of the next scheduled visit in order to guarantee that you are not charged for the visit.  If you return home early from your trip, please call the office to cancel the remainder of your visits.  Client will be charged for any visit for which the sitter arrives to the house due to cancellation notice given less than 24 hours in advance. 
  • Midday dog walking cancellations: must be received to our office by 5pm the business day prior to the scheduled service, otherwise full fees apply.
