Stage 4 Restrictions Update
As Victorians, we are facing our biggest challenge yet. At Ka-Pooch, we must abide by the legislation, whilst also playing a role in reducing our movement within the community, and unnecessary interactions.
As such, we are making a difficult, but important decision to reduce the scale of our operations until the end of lockdown.
- We will be closed tomorrow, 7th August. The team are currently notifying those owners with bookings.
- Until announced further, we will be reducing our opening days to Tuesday-Thursday
- On these days, our opening hours will be from 8:30am-5:30pm
- This allows us to halve the crossover between employees, reducing risk, as well as provide RDO’s to minimize contact
- Tomorrow we will be working through our COVID Safe Plan, including enhancements to our procedures to further minimize contact during drop off/pick up
As a service connected with animal health, husbandry or welfare, we want to support our many pet parents who are essential workers, are receiving medical treatment or have another genuine requirement for our services.
If your pooch is coming in for a play, but is equally happy to stay at home – as much as we love to see them all – now is the time to keep them home.
We promise that we will be back to full scale at the end of this, and cannot wait to see you all,
Please all stay safe, give your pooch a hug and we can’t wait to see you all under better circumstances,
Sam and team
CUSTOMERS: UPDATE ON COVID-19
As COVID-19 continues to have a dramatic impact across the globe, our top priorities at Ka-Pooch remain the health and safety of the pets you entrust to our care, in addition to the health and well-being of our employees, loved ones, and you, our valued clients.
While we will remain open to care for your pets, the health and safety of our employees is of vital importance.
There is no evidence, at this time, that dogs or other pets can become infected and spread this Coronavirus.
You might have heard of a dog in Hong Kong that has been quarantined after testing a ‘weak positive’. It is likely that this is a result of environmental transmission, given that the dog’s owner is infected. The dog is not infected or showing signs of illness.
But, pets and their belongings may be a source of transmission, if they have come into contact with an infected person, e.g. spread via touching their coat or bedding.
We will increase our already stingent cleaning protocols.
We have required our employees to take extra precautions, and have asked them to err on the side of caution for themselves, including staying at home if they are not well. If you have an upcoming reservation with us, and you are not feeling well, please do not come inside the building, but instead, call ahead to make arrangements.
We understand that many of clients will be working from home for a period of time. During this time, we will continue to operate as normal, and are looking to provide some of our regular enrichment materials for those at home with their pooches. Stay tuned for more info.
