Doraville Breaks the Record, Again, At Health Pet Event

Honeysuckle Park was full of excitement on Saturday, April 13th, as the City, in collaboration with Lifeline Animal Project, hosted its second annual Healthy Pets Event. This much-anticipated event aimed to promote the health and well-being of pets in the community, and it did so in a big way, breaking records and making a significant impact on animal welfare.

Lifeline Animal Project, the Healthy Pets Event offered a range of essential services for furry companions, all free of charge. Pet owners lined up to take advantage of free vaccinations for dogs and cats, ensuring their beloved companions were protected against common diseases. Additionally, vouchers for free spaying and neutering were provided to visitors to help control the pet population. Pet parents were also offered free microchipping for their pets. Microchipping is an essential tool in reuniting lost pets with their owners. After receiving their vaccines, microchips, and vouchers, visitors were able to collect bags of free pet supplies that included items like toys, flea and tick medication, treats, and more.

This year's Healthy Pets Event saw an incredible turnout, with a total of 1,263 animals receiving care—a new record for the event and surpassing the previous record. The overwhelming response underscored the importance of accessible and affordable pet care services within the community.

The success of the Healthy Pets Event would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of the organizers, volunteers, and sponsors who generously contributed their time and resources. Their commitment to animal welfare and community service made a tangible difference in the lives of countless pets and their owners. We're already looking forward to 2025's event!
