You can get your cat or dog up-to-date on their vaccinations at a low cost in Gwinnett County on Sunday, July 12.

There will be six different vaccines available: bordatella, lepto, rabies, canine influenza and DHPP (distemper) for dogs and rabies, bordatella and FVRCP (rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia) for cats. All vaccines are $10, except for canine influenza, which is $20. Microchips, which allow veterinarians and shelters to identify lost or runaway pets, are also available for $20.


The event is a fundraiser for the Society of Humane Friends and the Jail Dog and Cat program run by the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office and the Society of Humane Friends. Through the Jail Dog and Cat program, Gwinnett County inmates are paired with shelter animals and train them in preparation for living with their future families.

You can go to Tabernacle International Church in Lawrenceville between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday to get the vaccines. Payment is only accepted in cash, and pets must be safely restrained, with dogs on a leash and cats in a crate. The church is located at 270 Simonton Road SW. Organizers ask that all humans wear masks and only one person per animal enters the church.
