Give a Wag! Gives to Augusta Shelters

As the official shelter of the municipality, Augusta Animal Services promotes the safety and well-being of all animals in the city and those who interact with them. They are the enforcement body and principal investigators in violations of city ordinances like animal cruelty or instances of unwarranted pet aggression. They work to trap and release feral animals desexed and distributed pet licenses to all pet owners while promoted responsible pet ownership throughout the entire city. You would think with all of this going on that they have little time to find forever homes, and yet, in recent years they have been adopting out over one thousand animals annually.

CSRA Humane Society serves to support Augusta Animals Services by providing a space for those animals needing a little bit of extra help. Running on minimal operation costs, this shelter tries to invest every dime of volunteer time and capital back into the animals it serves. Operating on the generosity of the community and its local partnerships, CSRA has on average at least fifty animals up for adoption.

One of the smaller nonprofit rescues in Augusta, Save the Animals Rescue Society is a no-kill shelter that strives to accept any and all animals that walk through its doors. Because of this robust goal, they rely heavily on their foster network to take on those animals needing more TLC from the local shelters. STARS hopes to drastically reduce the number of euthanasias in Augusta, and act as public advocates for more stringent consequences for animals cruelty. STARS also brings their most lovable pets to local nursing homes to brighten the residents’ days with a little puppy love. Though they may be small, this rescue seeks to have huge impact!
