Gwinnett County Animal Welfare urges you to bring a pet home for the holidays

Celebrate the yuletide season with Gwinnett County Animal Welfare's Home for the Holidays adoption special, where all pets are free on Fridays and 10 lucky dogs and cats are selected for free adoption each week through December.

“More families bring a new pet home for the holiday season than at any other time of the year,” said Alan Davis, manager of the Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division. “Home for the Holidays is an awareness campaign that promotes the adoption of animals.”

Gwinnett County Animal Welfare is offering adoption gift certificates this holiday season.

“Gift certificates are the perfect way to allow the recipient to be actively involved in choosing the perfect pet,” Davis said.

During the month of December, 10 select animals will be free each week. Follow us on Facebook to see which animals can be adopted for free. Free Fridays will also continue through the month of December.

All pets adopted at Gwinnett Animal Welfare have been vaccinated, neutered and microchipped and are ready to go to their new home.

Gwinnett Animal Welfare is located at 844 Winder Highway, Lawrenceville. You can find updated information about available pets and activities at
