New Hotel Relationships!

Many of you who travel to use us for  pet surgery  and pet dental care know that the Quality Inn at 3300 West Broad Street has been sold.

We used to have a special rate at the Quality Inn if you mentioned Helping Hands. We are happy to report we have sourced two alternate pet-friendly hotels that are happy to work with us.

Fairfield Inn and Suites

The first is The Fairfield Inn and Suites (Marriott) at 9937 Mayland Dr Richmond VA 23233.

If you use the link below and mention Helping Hands you get a special rate (subject to availability) and they will reduce the pet fee to only $10.00.


Rate includes:

  • Deluxe breakfast with hot and cold options
  • Business Center
  • In-room high speed internet access
  • Fitness Center
  • Outdoor pool
  • Parking

Candlewood Suites Richmond

The second is the Candlewood Suites Richmond-West Broad at 2100 Dickens Road is just five miles from Helping Hands. If you mention Helping Hands they offer a special rate (and waive the pet fee) as a courtesy to Helping Hands’ clients.

They have no breed or weight restrictions and are cat friendly as well. All of the pet friendly suites are newly renovated and  have a bedroom as well as a sitting room (both with flat screen televisions).

They also have kitchens with everything you need, including a full-size refrigerator and a dishwasher. The lobby also contains a Snack Bar that operates on the honor system, a selection of board games, and a business center with computers. When the weather is nice, you will find yourself enjoying the pet friendly outdoor patio area.


We are so very grateful for the many clients who travel to Richmond to use our services. More and more of our clients are turning the trip into a Veterinary Vacation.

As we say at Helping Hands…medical tourism is not just for humans anymore! #medicaltourismforpets
