The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter will waive dog and cat adoption fees in October, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post.
The shelter announced it is celebrating Adopt-a-Dog Month by waiving all adoption fees through Oct. 20. Despite the canine-centric theme of the month, county officials said the fee waiver will also apply to cats and kittens.
Still, the shelter is highlighting the variety of dogs it has available for adoption, including large and small mixed breed and purebred dogs.
“During Adopt-a-Dog Month, we encourage residents to visit the Gwinnett animal shelter to meet a potential new sidekick,” Animal Welfare and Enforcement Director Alan Davis said. “You can discover the many benefits of having a dog: happiness, companionship and improved physical and mental health.
“Dogs also enhance family and social relationships, encourage people to exercise and promote laughter.”
The fee waiver is not the only special plans that Animal Control and Welfare has planned for this month. The staff will handout Halloween candy to kids and have other trick-or-treat refreshments for people visit the shelter from Oct. 25 to Oct. 31.
