Paws for Pax

Our Paws are here to pamper our passengers

Augusta Regional Airport has partnered with Therapy Dogs Inc. to bring the happy tails of therapy dogs to the terminal to help brighten everyone’s day.

Paws for Pax is an opportunity for AGS to enhance the customer experience by providing passengers with interaction with pets. Paws for Pax Teams will roam the main hall as well as the gate area of the terminal building during the peak travel times of the week. You can click here to view the current months schedule.

When you see one of the Paws for Pax Dogs with their red bandana feel free to pet them! Be prepared, you may receive wet kisses and wagging tail slaps!
