Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Augusta Dog Adoptions (formerly Chains Hurt) is based in Augusta County, Virginia. We adopt to families within a reasonable driving distance.
About Our Rescue Group:Augusta Dog Adoptions is a 501c3 charity. We are an all volunteer organization, has no paid staff, or physical shelter. We rely on the generosity of foster homes. Since 2007, we have saved over 1,000 dogs in the Shenandoah Valley, neighboring counties, and from other high kill pounds throughout Virginia and neighboring states.

Come Meet our Pets:All of our dogs are fostered in individual foster homes. You can meet most of our adoptable dogs at Petsmart in Waynesboro almost every Saturday from 10am-2pm. You may also apply on our website www.augustadogadoptions.org.
Our Adoption Process:All dogs are spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to adoption. Several have received additional medical care as well. The standard adoption donation is $175.00. However, the donation can easily be adjusted for seniors and dogs with special needs. It may also be slightly higher for young, purebred dogs. The adoption donation helps us provide care for the foster dogs.
We ask potential adopters to fill out a short application that can easily be completed over the phone. If a match is made, adopters are asked to sign a contract stating that they will provide all necessary care. If they are unable to do so the dog must be returned to Augusta Dog Adoptions
All dogs are adopted out as family members. They are not to kept exclusively outdoors. They must be allowed inside of the household.
