- Hurricane Ian left a lot of pets newly homeless – many surrendered by evacuating owners or found permanently displaced. Shelters throughout Georgia have risen to the occasion and taken on additional animals, including our own Gwinnett Animal Shelter. This is the ideal time to go rescue an animal, or perhaps add another pet to your home. Visit the site to learn more, or stop by the shelter to see if there’s a pet that’s perfect for you.
