Gwinnett military, first responders, EMS can adopt pets free

As part of the Gwinnett’s animal shelter’s “Make May Magnificent Month”, Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement is offering free vaccinated and spayed or neutered dogs or cats to veterans, active-duty military personnel, first responders, nurses and doctors. The general public pays only $20.

Dogs and cats up for adoption at the shelter have been examined by Animal Welfare staff veterinarians and have been vaccinated, and neutered or spayed, so they are ready to go home on the day of adoption.

Shelter fees are typically $90 for a dog. Cat adoptions are $30.

If unable to adopt, consider volunteering at the animal shelter or donating supplies or money to help the shelter improve the health of the animals, increase the number of adoptions and rescues, and continue to offer pet care education free to the community.

The shelter is open for adoptions 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville. Information: www.tinyurl.com/y8n79zdl.
