Dogs

All dogs receive a DAPPv-vaccine (distemper/puppy shot) and basic deworming upon impound. Some dogs receive additional vaccinations while at the shelter, including rabies and bordetella. Athenspets provides heartworm treatment and spay/neuter for selected adult dogs as funds allow; information about the status of each of these is found on the individual dogsโ€™ pages. If needed, dogs are microchipped by Athens-Clarke County upon adoption or reclaim.

Information about the process to adopt or rescue a shelter dog is found here and on the Athens-Clarke County website.

Want to help but canโ€™t adopt? You can sponsor, foster, donate, or volunteer!
