Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the Gwinnett community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Georgia — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new companion is at Paws And Stars Animal Rescue, where Freckles the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
