Gwinnett County Commissioners approved a contract with Planned Pethood to provide veterinary services at the county animal shelter.
The annual contract is for $360,000.
Officials said having the veterinarian services at the shelter can expedite the adoption process because it means animals who are strays or have gone unclaimed can get vet care and sterilization faster.
“This contract increases the shelter’s efficiency by promptly evaluating, testing and treating contagious or infectious diseases such as parvovirus, feline distemper, mange, ringworm and flu,” commission Chairwoman Charlotte Nash said in a statement.
Under the terms of the agreement, Planned PEThood will provide a full-time veterinarian and veterinarian technicians on-site at the shelter. Depending on the season, those employees would be at the shelter five or six times a week.

A volunteer at Animal Ark in Columbus, Georgia made headlines when she created a Tinder profile for Henry, an adoptable dog.
Meet Henry – a lean 48-pound Coonhound mix housed at Animal Ark Rescue in Columbus.
He’s an active pup who loves to snuggle, give kisses, and play. Henry has been at Animal Ark for three years after being rescued from the pound.
“I was like, hmmm, how do I meet Henry some people in their 20’s and 30’s… TINDER,” Miranda Morrison said, the Canine Enrichment Coordinator at Animal Ark.
Miranda Morrison set up Henry’s profile using some killer pick-up lines.
“Hello Human, my name is Henry, but you can call me good boy, You look quite fetching, Netflix and nuzzles,” Morrison posted in the Tinder profile.
“I thought it would be funny. I remember from my younger, swiping days, I’m happily married now, from my younger days I was on it, and I think I once matched with something like Pizza, so I was like it pizza can have a profile, a dog can have a profile too,” Morrison said.
Henry’s profile was published on Dec. 29 and it has received more than 20 matches since then.
Animal Ark is a nono-kill shelter that allows potential adopters to take the dogs on dates for a few hours at a time.
Henry has been adopted, but some of his friends could be on Tinder soon.
Miranda Lambert is asking fans to donate to FurKids, a dog and cat shelter, ahead of her show at Gwinnett County’s Infinite Energy Center.
Lambert, who is set to perform at the Infinite Energy Arena on Saturday, is asking Georgians to help Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters by donating cat and dog supplies as part of her “Fill the Little Red Wagon” initiative, a campaign that asks for donations to local animal shelters.
Furkids, a nonprofit that is headquartered in Atlanta, operates the largest cage-free, no-kill shelter in the Southeast for rescued cats and a no-kill shelter for dogs, making it Lambert’s Georgia pick.
“The Little Red Wagon was overflowing and then some,” said Lambert of her previous tour stops across the country. “I thank my fans, the volunteers, the communities and the shelters for their tireless efforts and for how much they care about what I love, which is the mutts.”
While Lambert said she hopes the prospect of helping a homeless pet is motivation enough, she, along with entertainment company Live Nation, will be hosting a meet-and-greet for a randomly-selected fan who donates to Furkids.
Because the Little Red Wagon will be set up outside the concert arena at Infinite Energy Arena, donors are not required to have a ticket to the Saturday event.
You can also donate to FurKids online.

Cole acts and appears to be a pure-bred Walker Treeing Coonhound. He has been an absolute joy to have around the house with his loving and laid back nature. He gets along great with other dogs and family members. He has not been tested off leash with cats, but he knows when the cat has been nearby and looks for him.
Be advised he has been trained to hunt and will become very intense when he gets on a scent and will want to follow it. For this reason, Cole, will be best suited for a family with a large backyard and a tall fence and does not plan to leave Cole unattended for long periods of time. Cole would be fine being the only dog in a family as he loves attention and the comforts of being indoors.
He has escaped once from his foster family but was easy to find by following his distinct bay. He was found at the base of a tree patiently waiting for his foster family, with his prey hoping we would get him and move along quickly. Cole is approximately 3 years old, altered, crate trained, micro-chipped, approximately 70 lbs. and up to date on all shots, but is heartworm positive. He begins his treatment soon and should be ready for adoption around the end of May or early June.
Hello there! I am a strong, 67 pound, fun-loving, 4 year old American Bulldog who loves car rides, leash walking and pleasing my human! I like to dance for my food and give really big kisses! I love couches and belly scratches and I even like bath time! I don’t like to be left alone in the yard, by myself, because I miss my humans so much, I’ll do anything to be with them. I’m really great at digging… by the way! I do enjoy being in my cozy crate when my humans have to leave. My foster mommy says I can’t be around cats, rabbits, or farm animals. And, small dogs remind me of the aforementioned so I probably shouldn’t have a little dog as a sibling.. especially of the bossy variety. But, I do like dogs that are more my size… especially if they love to wrestle like I do!
I really just want a family of my own so I can give hugs and kisses and make them happy! It makes me happy when my humans are happy! And, my smiles are contagious! You definitely need to meet me.. I’m a really cool guy!
