Ansley Animal Clinic on Monroe drive has been very friendly and helpful since we adopted our cat in September. Highly recommended.

Another recommendation for Ansley Animal Clinic. I take both my dog and cat there, and they're super nice. More expensive than other places I've seen, but excellent care and easy to get an appointment there (they have 5 veterinarians there). ~Julie Kientz
Pet Supermarket (multiple locations around Atlanta) offers extremely low-cost vaccinations/heartworm tests in their stores once a month. You can also buy heartguard, frontline, etc from their monthly clinic. I've taken my dogs there several times and have been pleased with their service. Check their website for vaccination dates/locations. ~Erika Shehan
- Atlanta Humane Society - One of Atlanta's major humane societies, which is a no-kill facility that takes in mostly owner surrenders, as well as some strays. Large selection of puppies and adult dots, smaller selection of cats, rabbits, and rodents. The cost for adoption is $80, which includes spaying/neutering, initial shots, etc. Overall a very clean, friendly facility.
- I adopted a kitten from Fulton County Animal services back in September. They always have a huge stock of stray and abandoned animals. You pay a fee of $60 for a cat or $80 for a dog, and it includes spaying/neutering, injectable id tagging, 2 months of pet health insurance, de-worming, and all their initial shots. They ask you a lot of background questions, but don't do an in depth background check (such as calling your apartment office asking if you're allowed to have pets). The kitten I got had a cold when I got her and had fleas and earmites, but after a visit to the vet she was happy and healthy. ~Julie Kientz
I like to go to PetSmart on Ponce de Leon. Pretty decent prices and selection, and they don't sell cats and dogs. Instead, animal services brings in homeless pets on weekends which you can adopt on the spot. They also sell rodents, fish, and reptiles.

My cat and dog are licensed through Fulton County. They claim they require it, but I know lots of people who don't license their pets. It costs $5 for a spayed/neutered animal and $15 for an "in tact" animal. You can do it by mail, and then they send you an id tag many months later (took them almost 4 months to send me the tags).
