We are now holding our adoption days at Northwest Farm Supply, corner of North 2nd and Rees Street, Walla Walla. Adoption days are Saturdays from 11-2.
Who We Are
SWAT is a volunteer organization that relies on temporary foster homes rather than a standard shelter for the housing of strays and companion animals that find themselves in a crisis. Volunteers coordinate local resources to help the community resolve companion animal problems. SWAT’s goal is to assist in the finding of permanent homes and to prevent the surrender of companion animals to a high kill shelter.
Temporary fostering provides a healthy, stabilizing environment. Homes with existing and/or no pets help an abandoned or surrendered animal normalize quickly. All pets are sterilized and vaccinated before going to a foster home.
People who become gravely ill can surrender their pet to a SWAT team. Once surrendered the pet belongs to SWAT. If the illness passes within a reasonable time frame, the pet will be returned to the owner for an adoption fee.
Support for SWAT comes from individuals, organizations and businesses who form independent teams. These teams choose if they want to provide temporary foster homes, animal training, adoption day organization, fund raisers, administrative assistance or anything helpful that suites a person or groups personal skills.
People who begin caring for a homeless companion animal have made themselves into a foster home and may join SWAT as an individual. SWAT will help with adoption, sterilization and medical care.
Donations, membership and adoption fees support the medical cost of companion animals while in foster care.
Adopting a friend
Adoption fees are $150 for puppies, $110 for dogs and $50 for cats. This fee helps to cover the sterilization and vaccinations.
All animals are spayed/neutered and have had their vaccinations before they go to their new homes. Download our Adoption Application
