Walker County Promotes Special Adoption Pricing, Rabies Clinics to Raise Awareness About Pet Health Issues

LaFayette, GA – Walker County Sole Commissioner Shannon Whitfield hopes to raise awareness about the importance of responsible pet ownership. During his most recent meeting, Whitfield proclaimed April 30 through May 5 as “Pet Health Awareness Week” in Walker County.

The week will be observed with special pricing at the Walker County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center, a number of rabies clinics and a public input session on animal care issues. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities and make healthy choices for their pets.

For those looking for a new companion animal, the Walker County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center will drop the adoption fee on shelter dogs to just $25 during “Pet Health Awareness Week.” The special pricing begins April 30th, which is also “National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day.” Animals are spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to being sent home with their new family.

Six rabies clinics will also be held throughout Walker County to coincide with “Pet Health Awareness Week.” Residents can have their dogs or cats vaccinated for just $15 (cash only) on the following dates and times:

Saturday, April 28:

3 p.m. to 4 p.m. – Rock Spring Elementary

Wally’s Friends resumes low cost spay/neuter service for Walker County residents

Dogs and cats in crates after being spayed or neutered

Rock Spring – Wally’s Friends, a low cost, non-profit spay/neuter organization, will start offering transport services once again in Walker County.

Pet owners in Walker County can now schedule an appointment for their dog or cat to be picked up at the Walker County Civic Center campus by the Agriculture building, transported to the clinic for surgery, and then returned the next day. The next transport takes place Monday, May 1st. Appointments can be made by calling 423-877-9966 and are required to use this service.

Walker County Animal Shelter Director Alison Smith says “we’re really grateful Wally’s Friends is set up to transport in North Georgia once again. Their presence will help reduce the overpopulation of pets in our community. The intake numbers at the shelter should dramatically decrease with the partnership Wally’s Friends provides.”

Each Wally’s Friends transport can carry 20 to 45 animals, depending on their size. Spay services run $60 for dogs and $48 for cats. Neuter services cost $55 for dogs and $40 for cats. A flat $5 roundtrip fee will be charged for transport. Wally’s Friends offers additional services, including vaccines and nail trimming, for a nominal fee.
