Adopt pets for free at Gwinnett shelter every Friday in September

You could end your week by taking home a new furry family member thanks to the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter.

The shelter is offering free Friday adoptions every week in September. That means adoption fees are waived for all animals in the shelter’s care on Sept. 6, 13, 20 and 27.


The shelter has 239 animals ready to adopt as of Sept. 6, including dogs, cats, a rabbit and a guinea pig. Dogs are typically $45 to adopt and cats are typically $30, or two for $20. The shelter regularly offers free adoptions on dogs and cats over age 7, and any pet that has been at the shelter 30 days or more. Rabbits and guinea pigs typically come with an adoption fee of $10.

In addition to the “Free Friday” special, the shelter is holding a $5 Foot-Long promotion on Monday, Sept. 9. Any dog measuring at least 12 inches long will be $5 to adopt.

All animals are spayed or neutered before they go home with their new owner. They also receive a medical exam, vaccinations and a microchip.

The shelter is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. It is located at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville.
