The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is nearing capacity and will waive all adoption fees for the rest of November, according to the AJC.
To keep space open for needy animals, the shelter is offering free adoptions for the rest of November.
The shelter has 246 animals in its care as of Nov. 21. That includes cats and dogs of all ages and one parakeet named Peep.
All animals are spayed or neutered before they go home with their new owner. They also receive a medical exam, vaccinations and a microchip.
The shelter is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. It is located at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville.
One of my dogs, Dolly, was originally at the Gwinnett County shelter, was featured here, and came home to live with us on the day before Thanksgiving 2012. Thanksgiving is a great time to bring home a new family member, as you’ll have a long weekend to help get them settled in to your home.
