Veterinary partners
  Animal Welfare and Enforcement works closely with the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine and other agencies to provide veterinary care, medical evaluations, and surgical care for animals at the shelter. Through these partnerships, most adopted animals are vaccinated and spayed or neutered prior to going home to help prevent pet overpopulation and keep pets healthy!

The shelter is also proud to partner with many Gwinnett County veterinarian practices and clinics throughout Gwinnett County to offer limited discounts for newly adopted shelter pets. New pet parents can pick up a list of participating offices at the front counter.

Low cost spay/neuter and vaccine programs

Spaying or neutering animals helps reduce pet overpopulation and helps pets stay healthier. There are thousands of unwanted animals in Gwinnett County that are not spayed or neutered and are reproducing. Be a responsible pet owner and keep your pet vaccinated and have your pet spayed or neutered.

Animal Welfare and Enforcement partners with several organizations to encourage low cost vaccinations and spay and neuter programs. The Society of Humane Friends offers frequent spay/neuter and vaccine clinics are offered at the shelter. Call 770.339.3200 for information on upcoming clinics.

Rescue partners
Valuable partnerships with several Georgia licensed rescue organizations help to rehabilitate frail or injured shelter animals. These organizations also work diligently to assist in finding forever homes for many shelter pets. For more information about rescue partnerships, please email
