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 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 due to personal circumstances. AGK accepts Golden Retrievers, regardless of medical condition or age, and provides comprehensive veterinary care, including spay/neuter, and training/behavioral services. Our mission includes educating the general 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.

After the first ever, fabulously fun Goldens in the Park, you spoke and we listened! We’ve absolutely loved hosting the AGK golf tournament for the last several years, but your requests for a Fall event to include more families and dogs were loud and clear! So — we’re throwing a Fall festival street party down by the River for another pets, people and fun evening!
