Okay, I might be shaking a little knowing that my picture is being posted on the internet, but it’s just because I am a little scared. I’m Rigby. I haven’t been treated so well in the past and SWAC shows me lots of love, but it’s hard for me to open up and let people in. My previous owners, if I can even call them that, abused me and it really has taken a toll on me. It’s all I have ever known and I don’t why they chose to hurt me. I was just an innocent puppy wanting someone to love me and I thought that I had found that, but boy was I wrong. I am here now waiting for that one perfect family to find me and love me unconditionally. It has taken me a while to recover and I still am, emotionally. A little bit of love and patience could make a huge difference in my life. Take a chance on me. Pick me. Choose me. Love me. Yes, that was a Grey’s Anatomy quote. I would have to say it’s my favorite show because they save lives, just like someone saved mine. Now, it’s your turn to make a difference.

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.
