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.
Hey! My name is Gauge cuz I’m super cool! I am a REALLY sweet 4 mo. old lab mix puppy and I’m going to be honest, I have stunning good looks, I’m an all around great guy!

This sweet young boy was surrendered by an elderly lady who was a bit overwhelmed by his energy. At 1 year old he would make a wonderful addition to a active family or hiking companion! Just like most young pups , he will need a little direction and with all of them a whole lot of loving…. which he will return 10 fold. Come by and meet Sirius, he will melt your heart!

I’m an all-purpose pup ready to commit 110 percent. When there’s a crumb dropped, I’ll be there to pick it up for you. When there’s a hole that needs to be dug, I’ll be there with all four feet. When someone needs a buddy to run miles with, I’ll be there with leash in tow. Commit 110 percent to me, and I’ll be yours forever. Recommend 12 years and older.
Class clown seeks good-humored soul mate ready to let the good times roll. My playful jokes, love of all things chewable and slapstick comedy will keep you and your friends doubled over laughing for hours. When I hog the spotlight, just let me know the joke’s over and I’ll settle down.
It’s the first day of school and, boy oh boy, am I nervous! I’m not sure where to sit, when we eat or even where the bathroom is. All I need is a person I can trust to show me the ropes. Will you be my mentor and show me around?
