Message from the Dr.

Hello! As a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and a pet owner, I have long searched for a place where I would feel completely comfortable that my pets were being cared for while I had to be away either for business or pleasure.

Traditional boarding facilities can be stressful for pets and do not provide the physical and mental stimulation that they need on a day-to-day basis. A change was needed and together with my husband Bill, who has a B.S. Degree in Animal Science and a Master's Degree in Animal Nutrition, set out to make that change. At Shipp's Corner Pet Spa & Resort we have brought together a team of well-trained and caring professionals who will cater to the needs of your pet. With the services and facility that we can now offer, the level of care will be unsurpassed. From our larger runs and suites, to our large grassy fenced play area and relaxing wooded trails for walks, our goal is to help your pet feel as though they are on vacation, too.

Please feel free to call our offices and allow us the opportunity to meet you and your pet to experience this new level of care in Hampton Roads.
