GWINNETT ANIMAL WELFARE OFFERS FREE ADOPTIONS TO CLEAR THE SHELTER AUGUST 17

(Lawrenceville, Ga., Aug. 15, 2019) – On Saturday, Aug. 17, Gwinnett Animal Welfare will join shelters across the nation with free pet adoptions as part of the fifth annual Clear the Shelters initiative.

Clear the Shelters is sponsored nationally by NBC and Telemundo as part of National Adopt a Pet Day. The Gwinnett event will also include fun activities for families like a DJ, face-painting, shaved ice, popcorn and giveaways for pets.

“This is our second year being part of the Clear the Shelters effort,” said Alan Davis, Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division director. “Like many shelters across the nation, we are nearing capacity with a heavy summer intake. We are waiving all fees with the hope of finding homes for the many great pets currently in our care.”

All pets adopted at Gwinnett Animal Welfare have been vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and are ready to go to their new home. Dogs that have tested heartworm positive will be treated before going to their new families. The standard adoption fee is $45 for dogs and puppies and $30 for cats and kittens.

Gwinnett Animal Welfare is located at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville. For more information including available pets, additional adoption specials and events, follow us @GwinnettAnimalShelter on Facebook or visit www.GwinnettAnimalWelfare.com.
