Introducing the Surgical Utility Vehicle!

The Atlanta Humane Society, as part of our ongoing effort to reduce the number of unwanted animals born in the state of Georgia each year, will provide low-cost spay and neuter services for dogs and cats on its state-of-the-art mobile Surgical Utility Vehicle (SUV)! The SUV program is an extension of our outreach initiative, designed to provide spay/neuter services for individuals who are unable to access our wellness hospital located here at the shelter.

The SUV will be making rounds to various locations throughout Georgia over the course of the year. An updated schedule of dates and locations is listed below. Scheduling is currently being conducted using the SUV voicemail system. To access this system, please leave a detailed message at 404.974.2885. Messages left on the system will be returned M-F between the hours of 8-10am and 2-4pm.

SUV Spay/Neuter Schedule

August 12 – 13: Gordon, GA

August 19 – 20: Rome, GA

August 26 – 27: Atlanta, GA

September 2 – 3: Blairsville, GA*

*To schedule your appointment please contact Lisa McConnell at 706.781.3843 Tuesday through Saturday.
Additional dates will be added to the schedule as they become available.

We’re hoping this effort cuts down on unwanted littersĀ in our area. During the month of July we were challenged to raise $50,000 for the SUV and if sucessful, a donor would match that amount dollar for dollar. We accomplished our goal and the generous donor came through, which means $100,000 has been raised for our SUV! Having these donationsĀ makes low-cost spay and neuter services possible and we’re very thankful for the help we’ve had!
