Gwinnett Animal Welfare Celebrates Adopt-A-Dog Month with FREE ADOPTIONS

Published

on

In honor of Adopt-A-Dog Month, Gwinnett Animal Welfare is waiving adoption fees on dogs and cats throughout October for adopters who come to the shelter representing their favorite team.

“This month, you can add a new player to your home team from among the many loyal and lovable dogs and cats that are surrendered to the shelter every day,” said Alan Davis, Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division Director. “Whether you are looking for a dog that achieves maximum speed chasing those long drives into right field, or a cat that prefers to spend Sunday afternoons on the couch watching the game with the family, we can help you find the perfect armchair quarterback, retriever or receiver.”

Gwinnett Animal Welfare works year-round to promote adoptions and enhance the bond that people share with their companion animals. Each year during Adopt-A-Dog Month, Animal Welfare provides adopters with the tools and resources to continue fostering connections between people and pets.

All pets adopted at Gwinnett Animal Welfare have been vaccinated, neutered and microchipped, and are ready to join their new team. 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 www.GwinnettAnimalWelfare.com.

Gwinnett Count Animal Welfare Celebrates November as Adopt-A-Senior Pet Month

Published

on

Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement is celebrating Adopt-a-Senior Pet Month during November by waiving all adoption fees on dogs and cats five years old and up.

“The animal shelter has cats and dogs of all sizes, colors and varying degrees of fluffiness  that are older, homeless and waiting for their new family,” said Alan Davis, director of Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement. “Senior pets can be more social, calmer and easier to integrate into the family.”

Davis encourages residents to visit during November to find the perfect new family member in time for the holidays. “Senior pets don’t ask for much; just a warm place to sleep, good meals and plenty of love.”

The shelter is also offering a variety of events and specials to encourage adoptions and pet health. The first annual Best Friend Pet & Safety Festival will be held Saturday, Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Best Friend Park in unincorporated Norcross with lots of family fun, pet and safety demonstrations and free pet vaccinations for the first 500 pets to visit the Gwinnett Animal Welfare trailer.

Then Nov. 30, adopters can name their own price at the Name Your Price adoption event. Come and adopt a shelter pet — of any age — at a fee of your choice. Shortly after that, Dec. 2 is Big Mutt Monday; adoption fees will be waived on all dogs that weigh 20 pounds or more.

All pets adopted at Gwinnett Animal Welfare have been vaccinated, neutered and microchipped, and are ready to join their 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 www.GwinnettAnimalWelfare.com.
