(Lawrenceville, Ga., June 4, 2019) – Gwinnett Animal Welfare kicks off the summer with Shelter Pets Rock, a special event that encourages residents to adopt a shelter pet. Adoption fees will be waived on all pets on Saturday, June 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Summer is the perfect time to add a shelter pet to your family,” said Division Manager Alan Davis. “Longer days with outdoor activities and families taking advantage of summer vacation create a great opportunity for pets to bond with their new family members.”

The event will feature activities and games for kids, food vendors and resources for pet owners that include supplies, services and training. 

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