Gwinnett Animal Shelter Tests New Ideas

Gwinnett’s animal shelter is trying out some new ideas in a 90-day trial this summer to increase pet adoptions from the facility. The changes include longer hours, free adoptions for seniors and an upgraded nutrition program for all shelter animals.

The shelter is now open for adoptions on Tuesday and Thursday evenings until 8:00pm and has extended Saturday hours from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Hours on Wednesdays and Fridays remain the same at 10:00am until 4:00pm and the shelter is still closed to the public on Sunday and Monday.

A new “Paws for Seniors” program offers unlimited free adoptions to anyone over 55 plus reduced veterinary fees for adopted shelter animals. The shelter has also upgraded to the Hill’s Science Diet Nutrition Program to keep its animals healthy.

Gwinnett Police Corporal Illana Spellman reminded residents that the new shelter is located near Briscoe Field airport on U.S. Highway 29 in Lawrenceville. Animal control officers are on duty from 8:00am to midnight and on call after hours.

The shelter’s telephone number is 770.339.3200 and the website is Photos of cats and dogs that are up for adoption can be viewed online.

By the way, the pictured dog is available for adoption. The shelter's identification number to reference if you are interested in adopting this cute male dog is 4338. What a sweetheart!
