Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is offering no adoption fees for dogs and cats 7 years or older during the month of November.
“Senior dogs can be more social, calm and easier to integrate into the family,” said Animal Welfare and Enforcement Director Alan Davis. “They’re already trained, aren’t going through a chewing phase and love unconditionally. They don’t ask for much; just a warm place to sleep, good meals and plenty of love.”
All pet adoptions are free on Fridays.
In addition, Gwinnett Animal Welfare invites residents to visit the Gwinnett Animal Shelter on Saturday, November 24 to participate in name your price adoptions during the Adopt ’til You Drop event. They can adopt a shelter pet of any age at a fee of their choice. Adoption fees are regularly $45 for dogs and $30 for cats.

Glynn County Animal Control will offer a free microchip clinic on Saturday at Glynn Place Mall, according to The Brunswick News.
Glynn County Animal Control expects to receive more pets during the “holiday dump,” according to The Brunswick News.
Glynn County’s Animal Control shelter often operates at capacity, and Animal Control Manager Tiffani Hill is asking county residents to help by keeping track of their pets during the holidays.
“The ‘holiday dump’ is a national issue,” Hill said. “All of us who are shelter managers are like ‘Oh, here it comes.’”
The term refers to a spike in cats and dogs entering the shelter during the major holidays, Hill said.
“As people are opening and closing and opening and closing their doors, there’s a better chance they (pets) can slip out,” Hill said.
She said animal control also sees an increase in owners voluntarily surrendering their pets to the shelter.
“They have guests coming and don’t want to deal with it, and they don’t want to take it to a trainer or lock it up. Maybe they’re going out of town and don’t have the money to board it,” Hill said.
