Why is the Cancellation Policy Important for Clients & Staff of Happy Paws Cayman?
At Happy Paws Cayman it very important that we take great care of our clients and also our valuable employee pet sitters. The cancellation policies ensure fairness to all involved.
We absolutely hate to turn away any of our excellent clients because we are fully booked, but from time to time this does occur. The cancellation polices helps to keep space available in our schedule for those who really need it, because we are only booking services with those that are certain they need us and know that cancellation policies apply should they need to cancel. I would hate to turn away a client because we are full, only to have someone cancel on short notice whose space I could of given to someone who really needed it. This occurs often around holidays & school vacation weeks, our schedule fills up, then many clients wait until the last moment to cancel, which makes it impossible for us to services the clients we had turned away.
In addition to this, our excellent employee Pet Sitters set aside time in their busy schedules to service our clients. We believe that our sitters deserve to be paid when their work is cancelled on short notice. Imagine a job were the work you depended on could be cancelled at any moment with no pay. The cancellation of one or two visits does not seem like a big deal but just imagine that times several clients all cancelling a few visits during the same week. We want to keep all of our top-notch pet sitters employed with Happy Paws Cayman for a very long time so we choose to pay them for services on their schedule that are cancelled on short notice.
Our cancellation polices are put in place so that Happy Paws Cayman can serve our pets & clients in the most efficient & effective manner possible.
