About Us

We are proud to bring over thirty years experience as operator and owner of a kennel and grooming service to the Hillsville / Galax VA area.

Getting to know the staff at Goin’ 2 the Dogs Pet Resort is not only your pet’s privilege but an experience for you. Our management team of three provides decades of grooming expertise and pet care. Our motto is “quality pet care is not expensive – it’s priceless”.

Donna Kaye McIver began grooming professionally in Charleston, SC in the early 1980’s. She has studied the art of grooming in many venues and says it’s in her blood. Her two sons, Russell and Riley also bring unique and quality perspective to the pet resort business.

Riley Drawdy majored in accounting and finance. He is always looking for ideas to make a positive difference for your pets. Riley is also an avid outdoorsman and constantly seeks ways to mirror nature’s natural spaces for your pets at Goin’ 2 the Dogs Pet Resort.

Russell Drawdy majored in auto mechanics in college. Upon graduation, he realized his true vocation was in the pet care business. He as well as his brother Riley, inherited the passion for animal care from their mother. Russell is an avid lover of nature and all animals. When he is not running the day-to-day operation of the pet resort, he is seeking ways to experience the outdoors.
