Dr. Shirley Bunting

Dr. Shirley Bunting started Centralia Animal Hospital in Centralia Crossings strip mall off of Chester Road in 1993. Centralia continued to grow, and in 2005 she moved the practice to its current location in the Village Green. Dr. Bunting earned her degree in veterinary medicine from Purdue University. She has always believed that each and every patient we see her at Centralia is part of her pet and extended family. One of her favorite places to be when she is not in the hospital is in the garden. She and her husband are empty nesters with their son in the ROTC program at Virginia Tech majoring in engineering.
