Gwinnett county animal welfare hosts inaugural adopt-a-sweetheart valentine’s event

Gwinnett Pet Adoption

Forget the traditional gifts of candy and roses; Gwinnett County Animal Welfare is hosting an Adopt-A-Sweetheart special Feb. 11 through Feb. 16 with the discounted price of $2.14 for each dog and cat.

On Feb. 16, the sweetheart special will include vendors as well as gifts for new adoptions and a photo backdrop to capture joyful Valentine moments of these pets as they depart to their forever homes.

Alan Davis, manager of the Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division, suggests that Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to give a gift that will bring a lifetime of smiles and happiness to the whole family.

“Adopting is a gift for both the pet and your Valentine,” Davis said. “Giving a home to a shelter pet is a memorable gift from the heart.”

Pet adoption fees are normally $45 for dogs and $20 for cats. Adopters can usually take their new pet home on the same day upon completion of paperwork and adoption counseling. All pets adopted from Gwinnett County Animal Welfare are spayed or neutered, have a microchip and are vaccinated.

Volunteer opportunities are available for this event as well as several others. Interested individuals are asked to visit www.volunteergwinnett.net to sign up to volunteer for Gwinnett Animal Welfare’s events.

Gwinnett Animal Welfare is located at 844 Winder Highway, Lawrenceville.  Adoption hours are Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Up-to-date information, including available pets and activities, can be found at www.gwinnettanimalwelfare.com.
