Important (Update 10/16/20):

Due to Coronavirus DAC is curbside only. We ask that you please call or text 706-278-1113 upon arrival. Also, if just picking up medication or food please ring the doorbell for assistance. DAC will be here as much as possible to care for your pets during this pandemic. We will adjust if necessary due to the public health mandates or employee availability. DAC wants to do our part to help limit the spread of this virus.
