Hi! My name is Diva! I think I'm about 2 years old. I'm a sweet, loving, cuddle bug. I'm a lap dog. I know, I know! The shelter humans keep telling me I'm too big but I just love to cuddle! What do they know, anyway?! My forever human will definately let me sit with them. I have a laid back personality and love everyone. Even the darn aggrivating puppies!

So, I know you are wondering how a sweet girl like me ends up in a place like this. Here's my story. I had a family once, up until a year ago, actually. I somehow managed to get outside my home and got lost. Animal control found me and took me to the shelter. They took a lot of pictures and said they were going to help me find my mom on Facebook. It worked! She found me and took me home. Shortly after bringing me home she took me back to the shelter and left me. Well, ! waited and waited for her to return for me but she never came.

Don't let my story make you sad. I'm not! I was pulled by the shelter humans and sent to SWAC since I'm so stinkin' sweet. Please come see me! I desperatley want to warm your lap and be your best friend!

About Sally Wetherbee Adoption Center

About Our Shelter...

SWAC is a no-kill shelter that runs off of generous donations and volunteers. We pull dogs and cats from the Albany Humane Society. Once they arrive at SWAC they will stay here until they are adopted. Our state of the art facility includes all indoor, air conditioned kennels, a grassy play yard, two cat colony rooms, and a meet- and- greet patio! Every dogs gets ample time to play with his or her four-legged friends and volunteers every day! Our cats and kittens live in colonies instead of cages which allows them to be socialized as well.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are located at 2223 Dawson Road in Albany, Georgia. Our building is directly across from Porterfield Memorial United Methodist Church. We are open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday from 11-6 and Thursday and Friday from 11-7. Stop by to see our amazing residents!

Our Adoption Process...

All applicants must complete our rigorous screening process including a vet reference check and home inspection (depending on animal). We require that all of our animals remain on preventatives and receive yearly vaccines after adoption. Once the application has been approved, the adopter must sign a contract agreeing to maintain the health and well-being of the animal at their expense for the remainder of the animals natural life. Our adoption fee is $120 for every animal in the shelter. We ask that you bring a leash and harness or a crate to transport dogs and all cats must be in a carrier.
