The Animal Control Division is responsible for all humane investigations inside the City limits. This includes: nuisance complaints; animal cruelty investigations; animal attacks; handling of rabid animals; dead animals; injured animals, and taking care of the animals at the North Augusta shelter. 


The impounded animals listed below have been found running at large in their communities, a violation under the City of North Augusta Municipal Code. Impounded  animals are held for 5 working days. If these animals are not claimed by their owners within this time, they undergo health and behavioral assessments, and if deemed adoptable may become available for adoption by the public. If you are or know the owner of any of the animals below or would like to leave a message for the Animal Control Officer, please call 803-441-4298. There may be some time between the time the dog is brought into our facility and the time its picture is posted. It is always best to come in person to verify if your dog or cat is at our facility.
