A COUPLE TIPS FOR YOUR VISIT
We recommend bringing cats in a sturdy carrier to provide safety and security in the car and while at the clinic around other animals.
For their safety, dogs that are not confined in carriers should be on a leash while at the clinic.
Don’t worry if you forget a leash, we will be glad to provide a complimentary one!

We currently have a microchip fundraiser for Athens Area Humane Society (AAHS). For $25 we will microchip your pet and donate the entire $25 to AAHS.
We believe very strongly that a microchip is an important part of helping lost pets reunite with their owners. We have seen many happy pets and owners after they are reunited from use of a microchip! Let us help you and your pet live happily ever after and help AAHS at the same time!
South Athens Animal Clinic has a long-time relationship with Athens Area Humane Society. Dr. Mosher was a past president of AAHS while serving on the board of directors for many years (even helping to pick its current name back in 1989). South Athens discounts medical care to dogs and cats in AAHS’s care and gives monthly donations to AAHS.
Go to www.athenshumanesociety.org to learn more about them. South Athens helps many other worthy nonprofits by discounting medical services as each helps specific dog and cat rescue needs. Some of these organizations include: Campus Cats, SOS Labrador Retriever Rescue, Adopt a Golden, German Shepherd Dog Rescue of Georgia, Pets for Vets (Veterans), Athens PAWs, and Guide Dogs for the Blind.
We also support Butterfly Dreams Farm Therapeutic Riding Program (Butterfly Dreams), a nonprofit offering equine-assisted therapy which Tracy Mosher co-founded. Join us at the annual 5K fundraiser that is held every Labor Day weekend in Watkinsville, GA! Go to www.butterflydreamsfarm.org for more information.
