Gwinnett Co. Animal Welfare Center offering adoption specials for October

By Lauren Hunter Multimedia Journalist

In honor of Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month, the Bill Atkinson Animal Welfare Center in Gwinnett County is offering several adoption specials this month.

According to a press release, any adopter that wears their favorite sports apparel when they come to pick out a pet will be able to adopt for free. In addition, adoption fees will be waived every day for dogs who weigh more than 25 pounds and waived for any animal every Friday.

These specials are in addition to the center's usual offers of free adoptions for any pet that has been at the shelter more than 30 days and any pet who is 7 years old or older.

“October is the perfect time to show support for your favorite team and expand your family with a pet from the shelter,” said Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement Manager Alan Davis in a press statement. “It doesn’t matter if you’re team cat or team dog, shelter pets are a great addition to your team.”

Pets adopted from the center are up-to-date on their vaccines, as well as spayed or neutered. Each pet is also microchipped.

Adoptions are available on a first come, first serve basis. The center is located at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville. Adoption center hours are noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The center is closed on Sundays.
