My Lawrenceville News powered by 11Alive has partnered with the animal shelter to highlight these pets. The adoption fees at the animal welfare center are usually $30 for cats and $45 for dogs, plus a $25 mandatory microchip. 

This weekend only all adoption fees will be waived for Roxy, Cupcake, and Abby. 

Also, be sure to stop by the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter on Saturday, May 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Become an Adoption Hero by rescuing a heartworm positive dog for free! Shelter dogs are at higher risk for the infection because stray and surrendered animals are less likely to receive proper veterinary care. Heartworm infection is treatable and your single act of heroism can change a life forever when you adopt one of these amazing dogs!
