In an effort to have each homeless animal at the shelter adopted by Christmas, the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is offering discounted adoptions through Dec. 23.
The $30 cash adoption fee includes the spaying or neutering of the animal, the first round of immunizations and a microchip.
The shelter will also host a special holiday event on Dec. 15 -- pictures and cookies with Santa. Area residents may bring their family and four-legged friends to enjoy hot chocolate and cookies and have a photo made with Santa Claus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Call the shelter for an appointment). An 8x10 photo is $10, a CD Rom is $5. All proceeds benefit the shelter.
For more information, call 770-339-3200 or visit the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter website.
