My Kids Have Paws is coming to Cartersville for a vaccine clinic on Saturday, March 26th! To try to keep things a bit more organized this year compared to last year, you can pre-register for the event!

Go to https://forms.gle/LGs2ydiqy7dLANGB9 to complete the questionnaire.

We encourage you to pre-register. It may take up to 10 minutes to answer the questionnaire, however, these 10 minutes will save you time at the clinic - pre-registered clients will take priority!

If you pet has previous vaccination records, please bring with you or email to [email protected] prior to the event.

A HUGE thanks to the League for Animal Welfare for offering FREE microchips! Be sure to check Microchip on your form and include your email address.

We also will have a dedicated time (9:30-10:30) for elderly/disabled folks needing any of our offered services or anyone wanting JUST a rabies vaccine or JUST a microchip.

Please note that if you change your mind at the clinic and want additional services, we will ask you to wait until 10:30 for service.

If you are elderly/disabled and you come after 10:30, we will have a dedicated escort person to help you navigate the system to reduce your wait time.

Are you bringing a cat? Or a cat and a dog? Our van will be set up outside the Fairgrounds building and will be full service for any families with cats!

Happy Sunday!

We have slightly different hours this week:
Tues-Thurs 8:30-6:30
Fri 8:30-4
We will have staff in the clinic tomorrow to answer phones, fill prescriptions, and help with some basic concerns.
We are sorry for the inconvenience!

Last week we had multiple staff members out due to illnesses. This has made wait times and hold times longer. We are also training new people. We truly appreciate your patience as we navigate these issues. We hope to have a fully staffed clinic this week with new folks more comfortable answering the phones!

As a reminder, you can bring male cats and feral cats for surgery any day that we're open for surgery. Drop off is between 9:30 and 9:45.

Have a great week!

Good Sunday Evening!

We are open Tues-Fri this week, 8:30-6:30. We will have staff in the clinic tomorrow for phone calls, prescription requests, and other needs.

We know getting through to us on the phone may be difficult some times...hold times are extremely long and it can take quite a while to get a response. We deeply apologize for this inconvenience. Please know that we are implementing a new phone system over the next few weeks to help decrease the hold time. We are also training new people so we can be more efficient with your time. We acknowledge the phone issue and are making strides towards improving it. We ask that you please bear with us. You can also email us - [email protected] - or send us a message on Facebook and we can respond that way as well. Thank you for your patience!!

Our once-a-month Rome transport days are still running. February is booked, but we have plenty of space for our March Rome transport date. On Tuesday, March 8th, you can drop your pet(s) off early in the morning in Rome and one of our staff members will transport your pets to our Dalton clinic. At the end of the day (sometimes quite late), your pets will be transported back to Rome. To cover the cost of this service, we charge an additional $10 transportation fee to your bill. If you are interested in this service, please call, email, or FB message us.

We are still curbside-only service, and people coming into the clinic must wear a mask. We hope to open the doors some time in March if COVID continues to trend downwards. We appreciate your patience with us!

As always, we accept male cats and feral cats for surgery Tuesdays-Fridays without an appointment. Drop-off time is between 9:30 and 9:45. If you need a different time or have more than a couple of feral cats, please let us know ahead of time.

We appreciate your patience and support! Have a wonderful week!

Happy warm (finally) Sunday!

We are open Tues-Fri 8:30-6:30 like usual this week. We will have staff in the clinic all day Monday for prescription refills and to answer calls.

We are still curbside only; if you need to enter the clinic, please wear a mask.

We still accept male cats for neutering without an appointment. Drop-off time is between 9:30-9:45.

If your dog/cat just had puppies/kittens, please consider getting ALL of them spayed/neutered before adopting anyone out. We can help find funding for ALL of them. Stop the cycle!

Thank you, and have a great and safe week!

Happy Sunday!

We are open Tues-Fri for normal business hours 8:30-6:30.

Just like all businesses, we are coping with staffing shortages due to COVID. Please be patient with us!

We are still observing curbside-services-only because of COVID. If you need to come into the clinic, you must wear a mask. We appreciate your cooperation!

We have joined the #BettyWhiteChallenge and are celebrating the life of Betty White - the beautiful person she was and her great love for animals.

Today is Betty White's 100th birthday! We encourage you to pick a local shelter or rescue group in your area and donate $5 or more in Betty White's name. Let's all honor and remember her, and give her the birthday she deserves!

Thank you for being a friend especially to animals in need. Please share to spread the word and encourage others to join in on the challenge.

Happy snowy Sunday, folks.

We are open Tues-Fri from 8:30-6:30 - our normal hours. We do have staff in the clinic on Monday to answer your calls and help with prescription refills.

Please understand that we have one veterinarian, which means we cannot be open all the time. We are trying to get more vets, but it is quite difficult. As soon as we get another vet or two, we will be able to be open more days. We also have limited receptionists. We are trying to hire more, but this is also difficult. Because of this, we don't always have someone available to answer your call/email/FB message. We try really hard to do what we can with the staff we have. We ask for patience and understanding. If your animal is feeling a little off, PLEASE reach out to us prior to Friday afternoon. There's not a lot we can do after that.

We are still observing curbside services and will be for a while since COVID cases are sky-rocketing. We will continue to wear masks and require anyone entering our facility to also wear a mask. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Have a safe and wonderful week!

Happy New Year!!! We hope you had a safe and healthy holiday and look forward to sharing 2022 with y'all!

We are starting our trial period of being closed on Mondays in order to better help our rescue partners. Therefore, this week, we are open Tuesday thru Friday from 8:30-6:30. We still accept feral cats and male cats for surgery Tues-Fri (drop off between 9:30 and 9:45) without an appointment.

We will have front staff in the clinic on Mondays for prescription refills and to help schedule your appointments.

We are unfortunately going to have to continue curbside service for a bit longer while COVID continues to make the rounds. We're hoping to open the doors within the next few months.

Thank you for a wonderful 2021, for your support, for your patience and understanding. We wouldn't be here if it weren't for you!

Have a wonderful week!

We hope you had a safe and Merry Christmas and are enjoying this beautiful day!

This week, we will be open Monday - Thursday for our normal business hours (8:30-5:30). We will be closed on Friday in observance of New Year's Day.

Starting the following week (January 3rd), we will begin our new schedule of being open Tues-Fri so we can better help our rescue partners. Our hours of operation will be longer: 8:30-6:30. We hope to expand our days/hours in the future if we get another veterinarian on staff.

For now, we are still observing curbside service only. We hope to relax our rules soon, once we see how omicron does in our area.

We hope you have a safe and fun New Years!

ABOUT US

My Kids Have Paws Veterinary Clinic, LLC was established to provide compassionate, affordable veterinary care for people and their pets in northwest Georgia. Based in Dalton, GA, My Kids Have Paws offers a full service veterinary clinic, in-home veterinary visits, mobile spay/neuter and vaccine clinics, exotic pet exams, and discounts for rescue organizations and people with a large number of pets needing services. Our mission is to provide compassionate, affordable care for animals and our values are empathy, transparency, honesty, and integrity.

The founder/owner of My Kids Have Paws Veterinary Clinic, Robyn O’Kane, has been a veterinarian for 5 years. Prior to becoming a veterinarian, Dr. Robyn taught Human Anatomy and Physiology to nursing students in Queens, NY, enjoying the diversity of the students and their learning styles. However, her passion for animal welfare finally overcame her love of teaching. Her personal mission is to help reduce euthanasia rates by spaying/neutering and to help keep pets in their homes with affordable surgical and medical care.

Because of the diversity of our offerings, our schedule changes weekly. We encourage you to check on our page every Sunday for the updated schedule. Please contact us with any questions!

Meet MILLIE! MILLIE is sweet as can be and so is her human! She is being spayed today at My Kids Have Paws and needs sponsors! GOAL: $90
~SPONSORED! Thank you @Amy Ahrens Marcincyzk!~ ECHO was SPAYED last week at My Kids Have Paws. Her mama sought long and hard to find a place to live where she could bring her dog and when she did her landlord asked that she spay ECHO & referred her to MKHP. The landlord also gave her plenty of time to get it done due to the long waitlists. Dream landlord really. But, as we all know, finding a place to live that allows pitties can be costly. ECHO’s mama secured her spay appointment deposit and vetting but needed some help covering the remainder so we stepped in to help! GOAL: $60

I hope it's ok for me to post this.this is Chancey. He is now three years old and was purposely let out out of his crate on purpose by his sitter, at Duvall Road and Industrial Boulevard on on Chatsworth ga. I live in Chattanooga and have been back at least thirty times to look. This cat is so incredibly beautiful I know somebody took him in or a coyote got him. I went down with wifi camera set up food buffets and posted signs on every corner, talked to every vet, business, and human could find. I just do want him home. Not knowing is killing me. I had him since he was two weeks old. The woman.n who let him out of cage was my neighbor for two years and is one who gave him to me. Her son has told me she is a psychopath and has abused animals her whole life, I am horrified. Please if you have him or know his whera outs please let me know, no questions asked. The not knowing is killing me and I will never give up looking. 404 395 2075
