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.

Please visit our primary website at www.augustadogadoptions.org

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.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
