Compassionate End-of-Life Pet Care

As your pet reaches the end of its life, the veterinarians at Godspeed Animal Care treat you and your pet with the utmost dignity and compassion. Our caring staff understands what a difficult time this is for you.

Should euthanasia be required, we offer our chapel, a comfortable, quiet room complete with a sofa and chairs for you and your pet, which provides a less medical feel and additional privacy over a typical exam room. Of course you can be present during the euthanasia procedure if you choose. You may also take your pet home to bury or, if you prefer, we provide cremation services where your pet’s ashes are returned to you.

Losing your pet is extremely difficult. Godspeed Animal Care’s veterinarians and staff are here to support you as you deal with your loss and provide these helpful resources that might be a comfort to you:

  • Claw paws—We make clay in-prints of your pet’s paw print as a keepsake.

Godspeed Animal Care’s veterinarians and staff give your beloved pet compassionate end-of-life care. Contact us for more information today.

The best there is. Makes me wish I was a dog so I could get treated there!

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!
