Cost of pet adoptions reduced in Gwinnett

For the next month, the cost of animal adoptions will be reduced at the Gwinnett County’s Animal Welfare department.

During the “Adoption Explosion” event, which runs from June 29 through July 27, the department will waive adoption fees and reduce veterinarian fees. The normal cost of $90 for adopting dogs and puppies will be cut to $40; cats and kittens will cost $30. Two cats can be adopted for $40.

Those costs include spay/neuter of each animal, a microchip and the first round of shots.
