Free shots, food for DeKalb pets

3/28/2014, 6 a.m.

Pet owners can get free vaccinations and free pet food at “Healthy Pets DeKalb” on April 5 at Wade-Walker Park in Stone Mountain.

The 11 a.m.-to-3 p.m. event will offer more than 400 free vaccinations provided by a licensed veterinarian. No registration is necessary.

Also, DeKalb County Animal Services and LifeLine Animal Project are extending an adoption special during the month of March.

Debbie Setzer, LifeLine community outreach director, said the nonprofit offers veterinary services and pet education directly to pet owners who need them.

“These resources improve the quality of life for pets and their families, prevent unplanned litters, and decrease the number of animals ending up in shelters,” she said March 27.

DeKalb County Animal Services, which is managed by LifeLine Animal Project, provides humane care for animals at the shelter, veterinary care, pet adoptions, pet reclaim services, volunteer opportunities, foster care, and rescue group coordination.

Wade-Walker Park is at 5585 Rockbridge Road. For more information, call 678-883-2349.
