Finding warm, loving permanent homes for orphaned Golden Retrievers

Our Mission

Adopt a Golden Knoxville | Golden Retriever Rescue

Adopt a Golden Knoxville (AGK) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to finding warm, loving permanent homes for orphaned Golden Retrievers to prevent them from becoming strays or adding to the shelter overpopulation. We also assist owners who can no longer care for their Goldens.  AGK accepts Golden Retrievers, regardless of medical condition or age, and provides comprehensive veterinary care, including spay/neuter, and training/behavioral services. We also accept golden mixes and Labrador retrievers when possible.  Our mission includes educating the public in Knoxville and East Tennessee, and specifically dog owners, about responsible pet ownership, spay/neuter, positive training methods, and veterinary specialist referrals. Our intake service area includes Eastern Tennessee, Eastern Kentucky, Southwestern Virginia, and Western North Carolina.

Based in the Knoxville, TN area, AGK is a foster-based organization with no facility. We are fortunate that Knoxville is a dog-friendly community close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, state parks, wilderness areas, lakes, rivers, and hiking trails.  Our dedicated fosters take advantage of these outdoor opportunities as they help our orphans get ready for their forever homes.
