Little Ponderosa Pet Resort & Spa

Located five minutes from Halesford bridge at Smith Mountain Lake.   As pet parents ourselves, we realize that leaving our pets for whatever reason is always hard. Making sure they are provided with love and care while your away is always very important. We take great pride in treating each and every pet like they’re our own.  Our pets aren’t just LIKE family – they ARE family.  Whether your pet is enjoying our vacation resort, spending the day with us in our doggie daycare, or enjoying one of the spa experiences with our groomers.  Our daily photos and email updates provide you with the peace of mind they’re having a great stay with friends in a safe and loving environment.

Welcome: About

Dog & Cat Overnight Suites

We have three size suites for our dogs that comfortably accommodate all-size dogs and large cat condos for the feline family.  All have climate-controlled AC/heating. 

Each suite has its own outside patio with shade covering so your dog can enjoy the nice gentle breeze on their outside patio.    

Overnight guests are welcome to participate in our daycare program upon request at a reduced rate.   All guests are provided a raised bed and stainless-steel bowls for their meals.  Guests will need to provide their own food as we feel it is best your pet remains on their daily feeding plan. 

Please bring their food in an air-tight container.  Along with any extra bedding or special toys, harness and leash your pet enjoys.  Each pet is provided a locker that will keep their food and toys.  

Be sure while making your reservation you checkout our amenities you can purchase to provide your pet with an extra special daily surprise.
