COVID-19 Updates

October 26, 2020: Any appointments booked moving forward will require a deposit. Vaccine clinic appointments will require a $15 deposit per pet and spay/neuter surgeries will require a $5 deposit per pet. These deposits are applied toward your total at check-out and become a donation if your appointment is not rescheduled 48 hours before your appointment or missed entirely. These fees will help to cover the cost of our veterinarian and the loss of revenue our clinic will incur by not showing up for an appointment. COVID has changed the way organizations that rely on donations and grants have to survive. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation on this matter. 

August 3, 2020: As a precaution we will not be accepting cash at our clinic. All major credit cards are accepted and can be paid over the phone after the services are rendered.

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 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.

Checks can be mailed to our clinic at 2860 Buford Hwy Duluth, GA 30096
