ANIMAL SHELTER UPDATE - February 10, 2021

Test results from two dogs at Cobb’s Animal Services Shelter were negative for “strep zoo” and other complications.  Animal Services received the results from the UGA School of Veterinary Medicine this morning.  The dogs that fell ill have been improving after they were treated with antibiotics.

Under an abundance of caution, shelter staffers are deep-cleaning the facility, so the shelter will have a phased re-opening.  Shelter staffers will be contacting those with canceled appointments to come in as early as Friday, with the process continuing into next week.

For questions about appointments, call 770-499-4136.
