Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement Hours and Location of Animal Shelter
Animal Shelter Building

For the safety and protection of all Gwinnett County residents, including our animals, the Animal Welfare and Enforcement Unit is part of the Gwinnett County Police Department. 

The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter houses lost or stray animals, along with animals who've been given up for adoption. With pet overpopulation on the rise, Gwinnett County is proud to report a decrease in the number of animals being received at the shelter and an increase in the number of animals the shelter has placed with individuals, families, and rescue groups.

If you're interested in adopting a new pet, or if your pet is lost, the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is a great place to begin your search.
