Pet Policy

For approved pets only. Be sure to notify us if you are bringing a pet to one of our pet-friendly properties.

 

Pet Policies Addendum
 Carolina Mornings, Inc. Vacation Rental Agreement

1. Carolina Mornings, Inc. only accepts well-behaved, housebroken dogs into our pet-friendly properties. Even though we love all pets, we regret that we are unable to allow any animals other than dogs in our rental properties. Absolutely no cats are permitted in Carolina Mornings rental properties. For the purposes of this Agreement, the term "pet” is always used in reference to a dog.

2. Pet-friendly properties require an $85 plus applicable taxes non-refundable pet fee per pet unless otherwise noted. Any misrepresentation regarding the number of pets at the Property will be charged accordingly.

3.  Pets are only permitted with prior approval—be sure to notify us if you are bringing a dog to one of our pet-friendly properties. If prior approval has not been authorized, and there is evidence of a pet having been at the Property, the penalty may include a $200 plus applicable taxes charge, immediate removal of the pet, and eviction from the Property with the forfeiture of all rental payments.

4.  In the interest of protecting your dog, a leash should always be used when your dog is outside. While North Carolina does not have a state leash law, please note that cities and counties may have stricter regulations. For example, the Buncombe County law (including the City of Asheville) states:

The city and county animal ordinances mandate that every person owning or having possession, charge, care, custody or control of any animal shall keep such animal exclusively upon his premises. However, such animal may be off such premises if it is under the physical control of a competent person and restrained by a chain, leash, harness or other means of physical control. Beginning October 15, 2007 any animal found running at large, in accordance with the ordinance definition, will be impounded. If an owner cannot be easily found the animal will be taken to the county animal shelter and will be micro-chipped, at the owner’s expense, before being released to the owner.

5.  As a general rule, dogs should not be left unattended in properties. In an unfamiliar environment, dogs may act uncharacteristically and unpredictably. They may get nervous and bark, causing a disturbance to neighbors. Or they may harm the Property by chewing, scratching, or making messes that they would not typically make at home. For these reasons, please remember to be respectful of nearby neighbors and also to please use a crate in the rare event that a dog must be left alone in a rental.

6.  For the safety of your dog, you should not leave Fido unattended outside the Property. It is best to always stay with your dog when outdoors and use a leash. 

7. To better serve you and your furry family member, our Concierge Service can arrange for walking, grooming, and playing with your dog. Call us for details and pricing. We will also happily recommend local groomers, doggie boutiques, and doggie day care or doggie resorts at no charge.  Carolina Mornings, Inc. Concierge Service – 866.250.9181 (Toll Free).

8. If you need veterinary services during regular business hours, please call our office and we will recommend (based on our own experiences with our four-legged family members) a veterinary hospital close to where you are staying. In the event of an emergency, contact:  

Regional Emergency Animal Care Hospital (R.E.A.C.H.) 

677 Brevard Road, Asheville, NC 28806

Mon – Fri: open 5 p.m.-7 a.m.; Sat – Sun and holidays: open 24 hours.

Please call before arrival: 828.665.4399


9.  Legal Disclaimer: Any damages to the Property or another person because of a pet will be the sole responsibility of the registered Tenant. Carolina Mornings, Inc. is not responsible for harm caused to any pet.
