At Shelby's Eden Pet Resort we freely acknowledge and willingly accept the serious responsibility involved in the care of your beloved pets.  As a part of that responsibility, we are committed to treating your pets like family, just as we do our own.  Our goal is to provide your pet with the best boarding experience possible.  Pets are monitored at all times when playing in the outdoor yard area.  We remind you that Shelby's Eden Pet Resort is a home occupation and we may on occasion leave the premises unattended for periods of time not to exceed two consecutive hours, and presumably will be asleep during the night.  No pet is ever left outdoors when we are away from the premises or sleeping.  Dogs sleep in their own designated room within the home, and which is attached to the owners living space, or even within the owners own living space.  Cats are confined to their condos at 10:00 pm in the guesthouse behind the owners home after which time sound will be monitored.  The contract as stated below is standard for any boarding facility.  Please read it carefully, print, sign, and bring with you.  Contracts are also available at the facility for you to sign at check-in, or can be brought to you for signing in the event you are using our pick up services.
