(Lawrenceville, Ga., June 13, 2019) – Gwinnett Animal Welfare will waive adoption fees on all pets for the remainder of the month of June. “Our Shelter Pets Rock event was a huge success with 39 pet adoptions in one day, but because shelter counts remain near capacity, we ask families who have ever considered adding a pet to their homes to do so now,” said Alan Davis, Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division Director.

 Summer is historically a peak season for animal intake at shelters, and Gwinnett shelter numbers reflect an increase in strays and owner surrenders when compared to previous months. During the week of June 3, Gwinnett Animal Welfare recorded 166 intakes and 96 adoptions.  

“Whether you are looking for fluffy puppies, cute kittens, playful dogs or loving cats, please consider adopting from the shelter at this time,” said Davis.

All pets adopted at Gwinnett Animal Welfare have been vaccinated, neutered and microchipped and are ready to go to their new home. Dogs that have tested heartworm positive will be treated before going home 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, adoption specials and events, follow us @GwinnettAnimalShelter on Facebook or visit
