This is Diamond, a small Am Staff with an amazing story. Diamond was brought in to one of area veterinarians having been burned by acid from her neck to her lower back. The owner who brought her in said he suspected some neighborhood kids did it to her while he was away at work. He left her for treatment and then sadly, never came back for her. One of foster homes met and fell in love with her sweet personality and decided to take her in. Diamond is a true testament to what animals can endure, survive, and then thrive. After months of medical treatment for her burns, Diamond is now healthy and looks and feels great-she only has a very small patch of hair missing on her hindquarters but even that is beginning to grow in-soon, no one will be able to tell that anything had ever happened to her.

Diamond herself is amazing-it is like what happened to her doesn't faze her in the least-she loves all people and is sweet and affectionate as she can be-she loves to give everyone she meets kisses and hugs. Diamond loves to go for long walks and play ball. She is good with other dogs and likes kids (untested with kitties).

She is spayed, current on shots, on heartworm prevention and housebroken/crate trained. Diamond really deserves a special home. If you think you can give that to her, you may submit an adoption application at our website at or email us for more information at


About Humane Society of Terrell County

About Our Rescue Group...

The Humane Society of Terrell County (HSTC) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a registered mailing address in Dawson, GA. We DO NOT have a shelter. We are an all volunteer based rescue operating as a network of foster homes that care for pets in our homes until they can be adopted into loving homes.

HSTC is always in need of donations, volunteers and foster homes. You can find out more about our rescue, our pets and ways you can help by visiting our website at Our telephone number is voice-mail only and is checked several times per week. Email is the best way to contact us. You can always message us through our website as well.

Come Meet Our Pets...

HSTC partners with the local PetSmart store in Albany Georgia in adopting our cats into permanent homes. We rotate our cats every two weeks to keep them from getting too bored or stressed while in the adoption center. Our foster homes are happy to work with anyone that would like information on any of our cats that are not currently in rotation and housed at the PetSmart adoption center. Please do not hesitate to email us for information on how to meet your new best friend!

HSTC holds small adoption events at PetSmart in Albany, GA on the first and third weekends of each month where you can meet some of our dogs available for adoption. PetSmart Charities holds national adoption events during the months of February, May, September and November and HSTC participates in each of these national events. HSTC does not hold our normal first and third weekend events during the months of the national adoption events. We are happy to schedule a meet and greet with potential adopters who would like to meet particular dogs once an application is approved.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee for dogs is $85 and cats $75 (we will discount if more than one pet is adopted at the same time or the adoptee is taking on some type of medical care). We do allow out-of-state adoptions, however, transportation is the responsibility of the adopter.

We require a completed adoption application with a vet reference provided. We screen all applications prior to a meet and greet and we will call your vet to verify your information. Adoption applications are approved on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration matching the needs of the pet to an owner. Some long distance adoptions may also require a home visit from a local animal rescuer in the adopter’s area.

HSTC is an all volunteer organization - we have no paid staff and we DO NOT have a shelter. The majority of our pets are in individual foster homes with fosters who work full time jobs - some of our dogs are in boarding at one of our vet's offices. We make every effort to respond to questions and make contact on applications within 24-48 hours of receiving them. Please be patient with us.
