November is adopt-a-senior pet month in Gwinnett

Puppies and kittens are cute, but lots of work. To encourage the adoption of dogs and cats five years old and up, Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement is celebrating Adopt-a-Senior Pet Month by waiving all adoption fees during November.

“The animal shelter has cats and dogs of all sizes, colors and varying degrees of fluffiness that are older, homeless and waiting for their new family,” said Alan Davis, director of Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement. “Senior pets can be more social, calmer and easier to integrate into the family.”

All pets adopted at Gwinnett Animal Welfare have been vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. Dogs that have tested heartworm positive will be treated before going home. The standard adoption fee is $45 for dogs and puppies and $30 for cats and kittens.
