If you need a new dog in your life, this is your moment

Augusta University will host the second annual Pause for Paws Rescue Dog Awareness Walk on Wednesday, Oct. 11. Hosted in coordination with the Augusta University Athletic Department and the Department of Sociology, Criminal Justice & Social Work, this event allows students and Augusta community members a chance to meet, walk and play with some adorable four-legged friends in need of forever homes.

Adoptable dogs from multiple shelters will be on site and are available for the following: Hugs, kisses, walks, pets, belly rubs, ear scratches and/or adoption or fostering.

The event begins at 11 a.m. at the Tear Drop on the Summerville Campus, followed by a group walk at 12:15 p.m. Even if you can’t adopt or foster, we encourage you to come out and take a selfie with one of our furry friends.

Check out our coverage of last year’s Pause for Paws to see some of the pups you missed out on in 2016. Don’t worry, though. We hear the dogs this year will be even cuter.
