It’s no different for the Gwinnett shelter, which took in 166 animals in one week, adopting out 96 during the same period, according to a press release.
As of June 13, the shelter had 228 dogs and cats in its custody. Available pets range from weeks-old puppies and kittens to senior dogs and cats that may need some special attention. Dog breeds range from Chihuahua mixes and terriers to Huskies and German shepherds.
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.
