COVID-19 Policies: Updated 6/1/21

At PetSafe® Village (“PSV”), our top priority is your pet’s safety which we deliver through the extraordinary group of talented professionals who make up our team.  According to the Center for Disease Control (“CDC”) there is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading COVID-19. While the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to humans is considered low PSV will take extreme caution during daily operations due to the high traffic of pets we see daily.


In order to protect pets, pet parents and our dedicated teammates, we are taking the following steps. 


  • Following Center for Disease Control (“CDC”) recommendations as well as local health guidelines on the best practices for mitigating risk.

  • Providing hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes in breakrooms, lobby and throughout facility.
