Our Adoption Process

All dogs are spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to adoption. Several have received additional medical care as well. The standard adoption fee is $175.00. However, the fee can easily be adjusted for seniors and dogs with special needs. It may also be slightly higher for young, purebred dogs. The adoption fee helps us provide care for the foster dogs in our program as well as other dogs in the community. The adoption fee is only refundable within 7 days of adoption if a vet finds a medical issue that you are unwilling or unable to treat, and refunded when the dog is returned to Augusta Dog Adoptions. Please complete the application below. 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 they must contact Augusta Dog Adoptions to discuss rehoming options. All dogs are adopted out as family members. They are not to be kept exclusively outdoors. They must be allowed inside of the household

Dogs can be returned within 7 days for medical issues, as determined by a vet, for a refund.

All questions must be answered completely for application to be considered.
