SMV Healthy Pets Program

Our goal of the SMV Healthy Pets Program is to increase the vaccination, heartworm prevention and flea/tick prevention of the pets in Stone Mountain Village and immediately surrounding neighborhoods. By improving vaccination rates, we will decrease the spread of preventable diseases, which will reduce the number of pets who are surrendered or euthanized as a result of preventable diseases. Improved rabies vaccination rates in particular will reduce the number of pets who are surrendered to the DeKalb County animal shelter for failure to vaccinate and license with the county.

​​Vaccine clinics - AARF hosts low-cost vaccine clinics 1-2 times per month. Please check the calendar for details. If you live in Stone Mountain and need help with the cost of vaccines, please download and complete the SMV Healthy Pets Program application here for assistance.

Low-cost spay/neuter - AARF works closely with Lifeline Animal Project to help people spay/neuter their pets. AARF has limited funding for low-income pet owners to help with the cost of spay/neuter. Please email AARF Director Susan Leisure at for information about spay/neuter subsidies.

If you would like to support the program and help more neighbors take care of their pets, please consider making a donation. 100% of your donation will be used to help more pets in your own Stone Mountain neighborhood!
