Augusta Dog Adoptions (formerly Chains Hurt) was formed in 2006. We are an all-volunteer, 501c3 rescue group that takes in and adopts out dogs that are transferred to our organization from local shelters and high-kill pounds throughout Virginia. We are based in Augusta County, VA and do most of our adoptions in Waynesboro, Va.
Augusta Dog Adoptions does not have a physical shelter. Dogs are “fostered” by volunteers at their personal residences until an adoption match is made. We provide rehabilitation and veterinary care to all dogs in our foster program prior to adoption.
