Vaccines can be given the same day as arrival, however, we encourage you to have them delivered as far in advance as possible to give them more time to take effect.

We recommend monitoring your pet for vaccine reactions for the first thirty minutes to an hour after vaccines are administered. Signs of a vaccine reaction include hives, vomiting or diarrhea, excessive panting, and/or weakness. Vaccine reactions are rare but are more common in small dogs receiving multiple vaccines at the same time. If your pet has had a vaccine reaction in the past, let your Veterinarian know so he/she can take steps to prevent another reaction.

You can text, email, fax, or bring proof of vaccines on the day of check-in. We do not allow pets to stay with missing or expired vaccines.The only exception to this policy is: your dog is allowed to stay with the 1st inoculation (in a series of 2) of the H3N2/H3N8 canine influenza vaccine.Vaccines must be current for the entire duration of stay

City Bark "Health Care Commitment" Program

City Bark is pleased to offer our Health Care Commitment program (the “Program”) in the rare instance that something goes wrong during a stay or service with us.  "City Bark" means City Bark or its subsidiary that operates the resort visited by Pet Owner’s Pet.

If your pet is injured, hurt, or ill during their time with us for boarding, daycare, training, and/or grooming services, City Bark will reimburse you ( as “Pet Owner(s)”) of your pet (“Pet(s)”) up to $500 in eligible veterinary diagnostic and treatment expenses.

What is my Coverage?

Pets receiving boarding, daycare, training, and/or grooming services- your pet will be covered by the Program. The Program applies to all current and future visits with City Bark.

What does the Program Cover?

Pet Owners will be eligible to receive reimbursement under the Program for any veterinary diagnostic or treatment expenses provided by a licensed veterinarian that is directly related to a diagnosed illness, injury, or condition (including, for example, canine cough or canine flu) that was sustained during the Pet’s visit with City Bark and was identified either during the Pet’s visit with City Bark or within five (5) days of the Pet’s departure from City Bark.

What does the Program Not Cover?

The program excludes the following expenses: Pre-existing illnesses, injuries, or conditions sustained prior to a Pet’s visit with City Bark, whether known or unknown by the Pet Owner prior to the visit; age-related illnesses, injuries or conditions; illnesses, injuries, or conditions inflicted on a Pet by a pet that is also owned by the Pet Owner; illnesses, injuries or conditions sustained by a Pet whose vaccinations were not current or completed less than five (5) days of such Pet’s visit with City Bark; illnesses, injuries or conditions resulting from parasite infestations including, but not limited to, fleas, ticks or mites; illnesses, injuries or conditions that result from a seizure; illnesses, injuries or conditions that result from an explosion, fire or an act of God; and any expenses related to a Pet Owner missing work for issues related to the Pet’s care.

Is this an Insurance policy?

No. The Program exists to fill the gap where insurance is not available. Reimbursement under the Program is generally paid out of City Bark's own pocket—though we reserve the right to refer a claim to our insurance carriers when necessary or appropriate.

FAQs for Submitting a Claim

1. Please reach out to us so we can help you in the event there is a claim under this Program.

2. If you have a claim, please have your pet evaluated by a licensed veterinarian and report the illness, injury, or condition, as diagnosed by such veterinarian, and notify to the Manager of the City Bark location within five (5) days of the Pet’s departure from City Bark and submit a written request for reimbursement to the Manager of the City Bark location. The written request for reimbursement should be submitted to the Manager of the City Bark via fax, email or hand delivery and must include a copy of the veterinarian’s invoice detailing the expenses and diagnosis.

3. After reviewing Pet Owner’s written request for reimbursement, City Bark may require a conference call with the veterinarian to learn more about the illness, injury, or condition or to confirm that the illness, injury, or condition was not pre-existing. In these cases, Pet Owner must provide authorization to Pet Owner’s veterinarian to speak to a City Bark representative regarding the Pet. If Pet Owner fails to provide such authorization, Pet Owner shall forfeit the right to receive reimbursement under the Program.

4. Within fifteen (15) days of receiving the Pet Owner’s written request for reimbursement and a copy of the veterinarian’s invoice detailing the expenses and diagnosis, City Bark will either (i) mail a reimbursement check to Pet Owner up to $500 or (ii) notify Pet Owner that City Bark is seeking the opinion of one or more independent veterinarians to determine whether the expenses are eligible for reimbursement. City Bark maintains the right to disqualify expenses that are not, in the opinion of an independent veterinarian, directly related to the illness, injury or condition that the Pet sustained during its visit with City Bark.

5. To be eligible for reimbursement, Pet Owner must satisfy all outstanding payment obligations to City Bark for any boarding, daycare, training, and/or grooming services.

6. Except as otherwise set forth herein, Pet Owner is responsible for paying all veterinary expenses directly to the veterinarian and City Bark will not make payments to the veterinarian.

7. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that a pet sustains an injury, illness, or condition during its visit with City Bark, then City Bark will promptly attempt to contact the Pet Owner and/or the Pet Owner’s Decision Maker to discuss the appropriate treatment for the Pet. Whenever reasonably practicable, City Bark will attempt to obtain treatment for the Pet from the Pet’s primary veterinarian. However, in the event that this is not reasonably practicable, Pet Owner authorizes City Bark to obtain treatment for the Pet from another veterinarian. In each case, any expenses incurred by City Bark in obtaining such treatment for the Pet that are eligible for reimbursement under the Program will first be paid from the $500 maximum reimbursement and Pet Owner agrees to reimburse City Bark for any expenses incurred by City Bark beyond such $500 (or for the full amount of such expenses if the expenses are not eligible for reimbursement under the Program).
