May 20, 2020: Beginning June 1 there will be a $3 COVID-19 Anesthesia Surcharge for all owned cats and dogs at the time of their surgery. (This will not apply to feral cat surgeries.)
Due to COVID-19 we have had to move away from drugs that are also used in human medicine. Unfortunately, the alternative medications are most costly. We apologize for any inconvenience, and hope this $3 charge will not be a burden on anyone. Thank you for your understanding!
Additionally, we will now allow feral cats to be dropped off on Mondays and Tuesdays without an appointment. Same rules as before COVID-19 apply. Two cats per person per day. Please see our community cats page for more information.
May 7, 2020: Our clinic is open for spay/neuter, however due to our closure for the past 5 weeks we are booked until June. You may schedule an appointment below or call our front desk at 678-561-3491 to make an appointment. Until further notice, feral cats must also have an appointment. Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time.
March 27, 2020: Due to COVID-19, our clinic will remain closed until at least April 30th. All spay/neuter surgeries, including feral/community cats, are canceled until April 30th. Please call us at 678-561-3491 or email info@PEThoodGA.org if you have any questions. We are checking these periodically.
During this time, please ensure any unaltered animal stays inside and does not have access to other unaltered pets if possible.
We look forward to being able to serve the community again very soon. We hope you and your family stay safe. Remember, social distancing does not apply to your pets. Our rescue program is still operating during this time. If you are interested in fostering or adopting, now is a great time!
Animal shelters and rescues across the state are closed to the public, leaving homeless animals in desperate need during the worst time of year; kitten season. Requests for help continue to pour in, but the consequences of Coronavirus make saving additional animals a difficult decision. Our vaccination clinics are on hold, our public spay/neuter operations are closed, and our bank account is dwindling.
Unlike larger nonprofits, we do not have endowments, investments, or any other rainy-day fund to rely on during troubling times. Individual donors, like you, have always been our biggest supporters. If you are able to make a gift during this difficult time, please consider helping Planned PEthood of Georgia weather this storm.
You can donate by credit card or Paypal on our website at: https://pethoodga.org/give/
Checks can be mailed to our clinic at 2860 Buford Hwy Duluth, GA 30096

UPDATED COVID-19 RESPONSE: March 23,2020
All appointments for owned pets for March 24 through April 2 will be CANCELED out of an abundance of caution for our clients and staff.
Our facility will be closed for cleaning on Tuesday and Wednesday. We will re-open on Thursday 3/26 to provide surgeries for feral/community cats only. We know that Georgia shelters will be overwhelmed with unwanted kittens at the worst possible time if we can’t continue to sterilize community cats, so we want to provide the option for this critical population for as long as possible. We encourage trappers to continue trapping for surgery on Thursday 3/26. If you plan to bring more than 2 cats, please call to make sure we will have room for them. Cats may be dropped off between 7:30-8:30 Thursday morning, and must be picked up by end of day (boarding will not be available). Call 678-561-3491 with any questions or e-mail us at info@PEThoodGA.org.
Our lobby remains closed to the public, as recommended by the CDC. This is a fluid situation, and we will continue to provide updates. Thank you for your continued support during this challenging time.
Our spay/neuter clinic and vaccination clinics bring in most of the revenue that supports our rescue efforts, community cat program, and other initiatives. Closing to the public will put a serious strain on our ability to continue these programs, and to protect our dedicated staff members, during this crisis. Please consider making a special gift to our COVID-19 Emergency Fund today.
We WILL figure this out together. Cats and dogs across Georgia are depending on us to ensure their health and security. It takes a community of caring individuals to make an impact, and we thank you for being a part of our community.
Our spay/neuter clinic is open, and we are ready to see your pets. We have taken every precaution possible to ensure you and your pet’s health and safety. Call 678-561-3491 or email info@PEThoodGA.org with questions. We have appointments available next week.
