Fun for Your Dog at Our Doggie Playcare

Do you have a fun-loving, high-spirited pup that needs to let out some energy? Perhaps you have a great pooch that wants to play with some canine friends. If so, St. Francis Pet Resort & Rehabilitation Center is the answer for you! Your dog will love doggie daycare with the doggy pool and play equipment and will go home tired and happy.

When you leave your dog with us, our expert staff places your pet into a group based on his or her size, temperament, and personality. Each group has its own Playcare Counselor in individual play yards that are indoors, outdoors, or both.

All dogs are required to pass an assessment test prior to participating to ensure that they play well with others. Also, all animals must meet our vaccination and policy protocols. Finally, we provide you with a Playcare Warranty, which ensures emergency veterinary treatment while your dog is in our care.

For your convenience, half-day, morning or afternoon, and full-day doggie daycare sessions are available every day of the week. Our full-day pets have nap time between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. and are offered lunch and a snack if you wish.

Best Vet and Pet Resort in Hampton Roads. I live 45 minutes away and only take my dog here. They are always so friendly and definitely take care of your pet! I always feel like Butter is getting taken care of when I am gone. I highly recommend both Godspeed Animal Care and St. Francis Pet Resort!

I found out that my dog had a hot spot, and was able to be seen that day. They are very caring people, from the receptionist to the doctor!

Wonderful place! Crockett was there for doggy playcare. He was happy when I saw him at the end of the day. He came home ate dinner and went to bed! It was a good tiring day !! Thank you!

I always get excellent service from the employees at Godspeed Animal Care. Everyone is helpful and kind, and they treat all animals well. They will get answers to questions I have about my cat and his special diet. Thank you for being my cat's veterinary office.

Everyone was so very friendly and treated Ruffles and Wrinkles like little queens. They mean the world to us, and to see the service and treatment they received only confirmed that Godspeed Animal Care will be their permanent veterinarian service. Thanks to all!
