We Have (almost) Everything Your Pet Needs

A little shop with a wide variety at an unexpectedly small price.

What We Do

Richmond's first self-service pet wash, CritterTown BathHouse supplies everything you need to wash and dry your pet. The price of the bath includes the use of shampoo, towels, brushes and combs; even colognes for the discriminating pet. You leave the mess and we clean it up.

Our goal is to make the washing experience an enjoyable one for both pet and owner.

We also sell healthy pet treats, as well as collars, leashes & harnesses.

Our Story

Judy and Steve Francis opened the doors to CritterTown BathHouse in July of 1996 with a self-service pet wash concept that was already popular on the west coast.

We are constantly evaluating the comfort and needs of our patrons and bathers. Over the years the bathhouse layout and tub designs have evolved to accommodate the biggest, the smallest and the messiest pets out there.
