Finding warm, loving permanent homes for orphaned Golden Retrievers
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.

Our application coordinatiors are working hard and will respond to new applications as soon as they can.
- Could peas in dogfood be linked to dilated cardiomyopathy in dogs? – A Tufts University study released in August 2021 explores the possibility.
