LifeLine Animal Project to Hold Affordable Vaccine Clinic Saturday, January 26, in Avondale Estates
Now that the holidays are behind us, many Atlanta residents have a Christmas present with four legs and a tail. Whether you have a new pet in your household, or have had a furry family member for years, the cost of pet care and veterinary bills can be overwhelming, especially as you’re paying off your Christmas debt. However, LifeLine Animal Project is ready to help by offering a low-cost, vaccination clinic on Saturday, January 26, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at their Avondale Estates Clinic: 129 Lake Street, Avondale Estates, GA, 30002. No appointment is necessary. Additional vaccine clinics will be held the fourth Saturday of each month at LifeLine’s Avondale Estates clinic and the second Saturday of each month at their College Park clinic.
A puppy or kitten package, including an exam, vaccine (DAPP for puppies and FCRVP for kittens) and dewormer, is only $25, while a basic dog or cat package, which includes all of the above plus an extra dose of dewormer and a rabies vaccine, is only $40. Deluxe dog and cat packages are also available that include the above plus heartworm tests for dogs and FeLv/FIV combo tests for cats at $65 and $70 respectively. Individual vaccines are also available, and to help ensure that your pet makes it home if lost, a microchip is available for $25.
According to Sheri Beasley, an Atlanta resident, single mom and owner of two dogs and two cats, LifeLine offers an invaluable service. “You can’t beat their rates,” says Ms. Beasley. “If it wasn’t for LifeLine, I probably couldn’t afford to have my pets vaccinated every year.”
Rebecca Guinn, founder and director of LifeLine Animal Project, says that this is precisely why they offer a low-cost option for residents. “We know that pet owners want to take care of their pets, but in this economy, many can’t afford the high costs of vaccinations” says Ms. Guinn, “That is why we began this program and, along with our affordable spay/neuter program, it has become very popular.”
