Adoptable Dogs from Augusta Animal Services
Snickerdoodle is a medium size, 1 1/2yr old and weighs 35-40 lbs. When he is happy his entire body gets the wiggles from nose to tail. He likes dog and cats, sits for treats, walks pretty good on his leash (sometimes he tangles himself up when he walks between your legs). He knows how to sit calmly between your feet and loves to be petted and get a belly rub. On occasion he will jump when excited but is learning the "off" command.
Getting a ride to the shelter was the best thing to happen to TIlly (to date). Tilly has lived in a 10x10 outdoor kennel with no enrichment or fun! She had a snotty nose, weepy eyes, severe flea infestation, extremely long nails and on top of all of that, skins infections too. As you can see in this updated photo she has done well in her month here.
Tilly is an easy going girl! She would love a home where she can play outside and then come inside and cuddle in the air conditioning. Tilly is good on her leash and is an easy walk. She sits and is gentle when taking treats. She is dog, cat and children friendly. It is time for TIlly to have her own loving home.
Boots arrived at the shelter, as a result of a bad situation. 'Boots were made for walking' but she was confined to a 10 x 10 kennel in her previous life. She wants to start over and desperately wants to be a housedog.
She is 6 yrs. old, has white boots on all her paws, weighs 44 lbs. and is ever so gentle. She loves to be close to you and rest her head on your lap for a bit of love. At this point, she doesn't seem to be overly interested in toys or know her basic commands. She is very gentle. Boots loves to go for walks, she stands calmly and waits to be on her lead. Once on leash and outside a fenced in area her happier side comes out and she high steps with her head held high taking it all in. Boots gets along with cats, dogs, kids and is going to make one lucky family a great addition. There is nothing "over the top behavior wise" about her. Everything about her says "love me please". As Nancy Sinatra would say - Are you ready, boots? Start walkin'
This 4 yr. old, 58 lb., Labrador retriever mix is Piñata; she is really a sweetheart. She walks really well on leash, sits, is a bit picky about treats, likes to explore wherever she is at. Comes close to you (leans in) for hugs and a good rubdown. Very gentle girl.
Appropriate name? T-Bone! He looks like he would love one or two :) He came in as a stray. No one came looking for him. T-Bone is such a sweet boy that warms up to you quickly with treats and belly rubs. He loves the outdoors and running and rolling around on the ground. He loves you to throw toys to him and chase him with them. He is great on the leash. He is 3 yrs. old and weighs 46 lbs.

Bojack knows sit, stay, down and no.
We are coming up to our first heat event of the year with temperatures expected to be 10-15 degrees warmer than usual. Heat kills and Augusta Animal Services wants everyone, both two legs and four to be safe!
DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PET UNATTENDED IN A VEHICLE, doing so could quickly become a medical emergency and possibly result in your pet having a heatstroke. It is unlawful for a person in Richmond County to leave an animal confined in a parked or standing vehicle for a period of five or more minutes when the ambient outside air temperature measures above eighty-five (85) degrees. If you observe an animal in a vehicle that you suspect is experiencing a heat emergency dial 911.
Please bring your pets indoors during these extreme temperatures. If you cannot bring your animals indoors, make sure they have shade, fans, misters, or a kiddie pool full of ice water, anything you can think of to keep them cool. Make sure your pet has plenty of water when it is hot and/or humid. On very hot days, limit your pets’ exercise to early morning or evening hours, and be especially careful with your short-nosed pets, who typically have trouble breathing. Asphalt gets very hot and can burn your pet’s paws, so walk your dog on the grass if possible.
In addition, monitor for signs of heat stroke! Symptoms of overheating in pets can include excessive panting or difficulty breathing, increased heart and respiratory rate, drooling, mild weakness, stupor or even collapse. Symptoms can also include seizures, bloody diarrhea and vomit along with an elevated body temperature of over 104 degrees.
