Low-Cost Wellness Clinic

Expand

WELLNESS CLINIC NOTE: Due to a staffing issue, HSNEGA is unable to administer rabies vaccines on FRIDAYS ONLY at this time; however, our Wellness Clinic will be open on Fridays for all other vaccines/services from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.. HSNEGA continues to offer rabies vaccines Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. along with all other Wellness Clinic services.

In Georgia, rabies vaccinations can only be administered by a licensed veterinarian, and HSNEGA's Friday veterinarian has retired. We are currently searching for a new veterinarian to assist on Fridays, and will be sure to announce once we are able to offer rabies vaccines on Fridays again. We apologize for any inconvenience this issue may cause.


It's important to provide regular, basic wellness services for your pets to protect them from unnecessary illnesses.That's why HSNEGA's Wellness Clinic offers low-cost vaccinations, wellness testing and prevention products for any public cats and dogs.

Wellness Clinic hours at the shelter are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. No appointment is needed for vaccines, however, appointments are needed for some tests (see below). Additionally, HSNEGA occassionally holds weekend Wellness Clinics on Saturdays to serve those who cannot come to the shelter during the week due to other commitments. Please visit our Calendar for a listing of our weekend clinics.

Heartworm Test appointments are available for canines 6 months or older Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Feline Combo Test appointmentsv are available for felines 2 months or older on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. To make an appointment, call 770-532-6617, Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
