The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter wants to empty its kennels, and it needs your help.

The Lawrenceville facility is one of hundreds participating in the annual Clear the Shelters event. The end-of-summer adoption push is intended to get every pet in the more than 1,200 partner shelters adopted by Aug. 17. The shelter also participated in Clear the Shelters last year.


The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is offering free adoptions from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the day of the event, Aug. 17. Pets who have been in shelter custody for at least 30 days are currently free to adopt. The shelter has 285 animals in its custody as of Aug. 5, including a rabbit and a chicken.

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.
