Gwinnett shelter offering free adoptions for first responders, nurses

Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is offering free adoptions to first responders and medical professionals for the month of May.

With proper ID, active duty military, veterans, fire and EMS personnel, police, doctors and nurses will not have to pay to take home a new furry friend. Adoption fees for all animals are reduced to $20 if a customer does not fall into one of those categories.
