Gwinnett Animal Shelter joins Clear the Shelter Program on Saturday

Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement on Saturday will participate in the fourth annual Clear the Shelters initiative with an Adoption Jamboree. Clear the Shelter is a national effort involving hundreds of shelters that offer free pet adoptions to help empty shelters and provide homes for dogs, cats, and other animals.

Tom Wargo, owner of Daffy’s Pet Soup Kitchen and Daffy's New & Used Pet Supplies, loads up supplies to deliver to flood victims in Louisiana at the end of September. Daffy’s has made several trips so far to help deliver aid to animals in Louisiana.

Tom and Diane Wargo are retired. Well, that’s not quite accurate. The couple both left their former careers to work full time helping animals. That may sound like a quiet plan for their golden years, but the Wargos’ passion for bettering the lives of all animals is exhausting –  physically, emotionally, and financially.

Camp comes to Paws in the Park

As a relatively new business, opened March 2015, we are constantly looking out to the community to see how we can spread the word and contribute. We were honored that the City came to us and asked us to be a part of planning the first ever dog-centric event in Lawrenceville.

Black is beautiful

Black Friday.  What comes to mind: Bargains? Crowds?  Mayhem?  All of the above?  My guess is Black Friday doesn’t conjure up thoughts like “soft” and “cuddly” but, Gwinnett County is changing that.
