(Lawrenceville, Ga., Dec. 31, 2019) – Gwinnett Animal Welfare celebrates national Walk Your Dog Month with the return of Free Fridays throughout January. “We have many dogs at Gwinnett Animal Welfare that are perfect workout partners to help you start the year right and achieve your fitness goals,” said Alan Davis, director at Gwinnett Animal Welfare. “We have dogs of all sizes, ages and energy levels just waiting to find the right running buddy or the perfect human to guide them through a nice walk at a park. We also have some senior dogs and beautiful cats for adoption for those whose goals include a slower pace.”

  If your resolution includes making life a little bit better for a shelter pet, Gwinnett Animal Welfare encourages you to discover the joy of fostering a pet.

“Providing a loving, temporary home for a vulnerable pet is one of the most rewarding ways to give back in 2020,” Davis said.

For more information about available dogs and the foster program, please contact the shelter at (770) 339-3200.

All pets adopted at Gwinnett Animal Welfare have been vaccinated, neutered and microchipped, and are ready to start the new year with a new family. Dogs that have tested heartworm positive will be treated before going home. 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
