Please follow these simple directions to make your clinic visit as easy as possible. To schedule an appointment, visit Make An Appointment on our website.

Prepare your Animal for Surgery

  • No food or snacks after 11pm the evening prior to surgery.
  • Animals can have LIMITED water overnight, but take it up in the morning.
  • If your animal is current on its rabies vaccine, bring a copy of your current rabies certificate.
  • We will provide a rabies vaccine at no charge if you cannot provide a rabies certificate.

Drop-off and Pick-up

  • Our drop-off times are between 8am and 9am.
  • Please call or text if you are delayed. The phone number for the clinic is 770 704-7297.
  • You will need to pick your animal up the same day between 4pm and 5pm.
  • If your animal’s pickup time changes we will call you. Please be punctual and note that all animals will need to be picked up by 5 pm the day of your clinic.
  • We will contact you if your animal is ready to go home earlier.
  • Dogs must be brought in on a leash (small dogs may use a carrier). Cats must be brought in a secure carrier. One animal per carrier is best.
  • You need to have secure control over your animal(s).   Be aware that other animals will be present.  If you need help, leave your animal in the car and come inside to ask a staff member to assist you.

Finally, please note that Georgia Animal Project is not a substitute for a regular veterinarian. We operate as a high quality, low-cost spay/neuter program. We do not offer vaccine verification, test results to third parties or prescriptions for conditions outside the scope of our services offered at the time of the surgical procedure. We will provide you a receipt detailing the services provided to your companion animal at pick-up.
