Pet Policy

PORT OF KIMBERLING PET POLICY

THE FOLLOWING POLICIES DO NOT PERTAIN TO SERVICE ANIMALS. SEE POK SERVICE ANIMAL POLICY.

Port of Kimberling LOVES PETS! We know that pets are part of our guests’ family and we want families to enjoy their time here together. We also respect the wishes of customers who don’t want to encounter other people’s pets for health or other reasons. In recent seasons, a handful of guests chose to ignore or evade our then-current policies, and the result of those decisions led to injuries to persons and other pets, arrests, property damage and eviction from the premises. In the interest of everyone’s health, safety and enjoyment of the area, we observe the following policies regarding pets. All customers checking in at any area of the property must sign the POK Pet Policy Agreement; annual slip customer execution of a lease constitutes an agreement to observe the POK Pet Policy.

ALL PETS BROUGHT ONTO THE PROPERTY MUST BE CURRENT ON VACCINATIONS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO RABIES.

AGGRESSIVE PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY. VIOLATORS MAY BE CHARGED A $250.00 FEE AND BE REMOVED FROM THE PREMISES WITHOUT A REFUND. “AGGRESSIVE” WILL BE DETERMINED BY POK MANAGEMENT, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION. MANAGEMENT RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE TO ANY GUEST WHO REFUSES TO COMPLY WITH THE POK PET POLICY. POK STAFF MAY CALL POLICE FOR ASSISTANCE IF PET OWNER BECOMES UNCOOPERATIVE.
