(Lawrenceville, Ga., March 7, 2019) –  The Gwinnett Animal Shelter is bringing back Free Fridays for the month of March and hosting a puppy version of a St. Patrick’s Day special.

This month, all adoptions are free on Fridays. Dogs typically cost $45 to adopt and cats typically cost $30.

“Free Fridays have always been a huge success,” said Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division Manager Alan Davis. “It makes adopting pets more affordable for people, which means animals find forever homes, and ensures that we have room for new arrivals. It’s a positive experience for everyone.”

You can enjoy the luck of the Irish a day early by celebrating St. Pitty’s Day on Saturday, March 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. All adoption fees for pit bull mixes are waived. Scores of pups at the shelter have some pit bull lineage so there are many choices.

All pets adopted at Gwinnett Animal Welfare have been vaccinated, neutered and microchipped and are ready to go to their new home.

The shelter is open for adoptions Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Gwinnett Animal Welfare is located at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville. You can find updated information about available pets and activities at
