Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement will join shelters and rescues across the nation to find homes for shelter pets as part of the Clear the Shelters adoption drive

For the third year, Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement will join shelters and rescues across the nation to find homes for shelter pets as part of the Clear the Shelters adoption drive.

"Like shelters all over the country, our hope is to find happy forever homes for the many great pets in our care," said Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division Director Alan Davis. "We would love to literally clear our shelter."

Clear the Shelters is sponsored by NBC and Telemundo and has placed more than 411,000 pets in loving homes since 2015 as part of the annual campaign.

For the safety and well-being of the community, Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement is currently limiting visitors in the shelter each day and is following all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. Interested adopters are encouraged to view the available pets on GwinnettAnimalWelfare.com and complete the adoption application before coming to the shelter for a meet and greet.

Currently, adoption fees for dogs and puppies are $45 each while cats and kittens are $20 each.

Adoption fees are waived for senior pets more than seven years old. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, which is included in the adoption fee. Most pets can go home the same day as adoption.

For information including adoption specials and events, available pets and shelter visit guidelines, follow them @GwinnettAnimalShelter on social media or visit GwinnettAnimalWelfare.com. The shelter is located at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville.
