Alba

Labrador Retriever - Adult - Female
Adoptable Medium Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrainedSpecial Needs

I’m trying not to be sad about it all….but first my owners surrendered me…something about they were moving and I couldn’t go….then I find out I have heartworms….not sure I can handle one more bit of bad news. The Friends will help with my treatment once I’m adopted. My name is Alba and this is not how I imagined my life…but sometimes we have to roll with the punches and lean in…..I am a 3 yr old spayed female and I weigh 46 lbs. I’m an extremely easy gal…quiet, easy to handle and a little submissive at times. I get a little nervous when it storms so just hold me tight and I’ll be fine. I get along great with other dogs and love kids. I’ve been here a few days now and although it’s not home I’m trying to keep my spirits and hopes high for a new home soon! Stop by and see me…. if only for a visit…it’s hard being separated from family….maybe I’ll find a new one soon! I’m ready now! Adopting a dog from the Conway Animal Welfare Unit is a fairly easy process. The first step to adopting an animal is submitting an application. The application allows us to individually consider applicants and helps us to properly match our pets with new owners. We want to make sure that our pets are going to homes that are ready to provide for these pets long-term. Adoptions are $50 and this includes vaccinations, heartworm test, spay/neuter and microchip. As with any shelter animal, health is not guaranteed but we do our best to screen out those animals that are showing obvious signs of illness or disclose that information prior to adoption. All dogs are heartworm tested upon adoption.

If you are interested in adopting a dog and you reside OUTSIDE the city limits of Conway and the dog is less than 12 wks old, the cost is $75 which includes a spay/neuter and micropchip. The spay and neuter can only be performed at Vilonia Vet Clinic or Companion Animal Spay/Neuter Clinic. If the animal is less that 12 wks and you live inside the city limits the adoption fee is $25 dollars and you receive a voucher for $120 to use at select clinics for spay/neuter. The other option is that you provide us with proof of a pre-paid spay or neuter at YOUR vet of choice.
