Domesticated animals to be boarded include, but are not limited to: Dogs, Cats, Birds, Hamsters, Rabbits, etc. The undersigned Animal Owner or visitor acknowledges that the Premises, the animals, guests, items, and activities thereon, pose dangers to people and animals. Such dangers include, by way of example and not limitation; animals that can bite, kick, scratch, trip, knock down, or fight, indoor or outdoor surfaces that may be slippery, equipment that can trip, persons who cannot control their animals, and activities involving animals that can result in injury from bites or other causes. Accordingly, Animal Owner, on behalf of him/her, his/her spouse and minor children and anyone else whom Animal Owners bring onto the Premises, waives any and all legal duties on the part of Creekside Pt Boarding, LLC or its Owners to keep the Premises free of dangers and the risk of injuries, losses, damages, costs and expenses by any means above described, and the other injuries, losses, damages, costs and expenses of every possible cause and description unless inflicted intentionally or recklessly by the agents/employees of Creekside or its Owners.
This agreement is binding upon Animal Owner; the spouse of Animal Owner, and the children of Animal Owner. Should any person entering the premises on behalf of Animal Owner not sign this Agreement, Animal Owner will defend, hold harmless and indemnify Creekside and its Owners, and their agents/employees, against any claims, demands, lawsuits, losses, costs, or expenses, including attorney fees, brought by or on behalf of any such persons.
Animal Owner assumes the risks to and is liable for the actions of each animal they (or their agent) bring upon these premises. If the animal is injured in a fight or an accident, gets fleas, ticks, or worms, contacts any illness or disease, or engages in any unwanted behavior, Animal Owner accepts the risk of the same and agrees that Creekside and its Owners, employees and agents shall not be held responsible for such occurrences or any resulting injuries, losses, damages, costs, or expenses.
Animal Owner agrees to pay all losses and damages resulting from any behavior of the animal, at any time, that causes property damage or personal injuries, including but not limited to bites suffered or incurred by any person or other animal. If the animal causes injury or loss to any property, person or other animal, Animal Owner will defend and indemnify Creekside, its Owners, agents and employees from any resulting claims, demands, lawsuits, losses, costs or expenses, including attorney’s fees.
This agreement supersedes all prior discussions, representations and agreements of the parties, and expresses the entire understanding between Animal Owner and Creekside regarding the matters described above. All parties confirm that no other promises, representations or oral understandings have been made with regard thereto. This Agreement may be amended only by a written instrument signed by both Animal Owner and Premises Owner. Any remedy provided in this Agreement is in addition to any and all remedies provided by law or equity.
GROUP PLAY ADVISEMENT & AGREEMENT: “The only predictable aspect of animal behavior is that they are unpredictable – even if they are from the same family”. Owners requesting a play yard with group interaction shall assume full responsibility for their pet’s actions and agree that there shall be no claims against any Creekside client, employee, or Creekside owners, regardless of which animal was the aggressor. When owners give authorization for any group interaction, they hereby acknowledge the inherent unpredictability of animal behavior. Owners may request solitary or “family only” play yards if available.
