Payment Options

Payment is expected at the time services are rendered.

We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, American Express, debit, and cash.

We apologize for any inconvenience however, John Rolfe cannot extend credit to our clients. We wish we could do what we do for free but, (until we win the lottery) our fees are as low as we can possibly make them and still be available for the next pet who needs us. Please, if you need to borrow money and do not have credit available, turn to your family, friends, or employers to lend you the money and make arrangements to pay them back. Your pet is your responsibility and we will do what we can to help you through a difficult time, but we cannot be financially responsible for you and your pet.

We also accept Care Credit which you can apply for at Care Credit offers a 6 month/no interest plan.
