Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement invites you to adopt ‘til you drop and kick off the holidays Saturday, Nov. 30 with the annual after-Thanksgiving Name Your Own Price event.

“The shelter is near capacity, so we encourage residents to get in the holiday spirit by adopting a new best friend and claiming a really good bargain at the same time,” said Alan Davis, director of Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement.

Nov. 30 is also the final day for the shelter’s Adopt A Senior Pet special. All dogs and cats five years old and over are free until the end of the month. Davis encourages residents to visit and find the perfect new family member in time for the holidays.

The shelter will be closed Thursday, Nov. 28 and Friday, Nov. 29 for the Thanksgiving holiday but will be open Saturday, Nov. 30 at 11 a.m. for the Name Your Own Price adoption event.

All pets adopted at Gwinnett Animal Welfare have been vaccinated, neutered and microchipped, and are ready to enjoy the holidays with the new families. 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.

Gwinnett Animal Welfare is located at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville. For more information, including available pets, adoption specials and events, follow us @GwinnettAnimalShelter on Facebook or visit
