Our Mission

Adopt a Golden Knoxville's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home pure bred and mixed Golden Retrievers that need homes.  AGK is a volunteer, 501 (c)(3) non-profit organizations.  100% of monies raised go to the dogs to cover their medical care, food, any necessary behavioral training and special needs transport. 


Golden Retrievers, regardless of medical needs or age, will receive an evaluation, spay/neutering services, veterinary care, behavioral training if required, and safe passage into a permanent loving home. In addition to providing those services, Adopt a Golden Knoxville is intent on educating and assisting the East Tennessee general public regarding responsible pet ownership, spay/neutering, obedience training, and veterinary/specialists referrals. Adopt A Golden is also dedicated in educating the public of the issues with puppy mills.

Adoption Policy

Our adoption process starts with completing an application and submitting a non-refundable $35.00 application fee. Please note the application fee is not a guarantee for any dog. It is simply a guarantee that your entire family is committed to adopting one of our dogs.


The adoption fees vary by age. Adoption fees help offset the medical costs for our incoming dogs. All dogs are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. All dogs are vaccinated and treated for any infections of which we become aware. Serious medical problems are also treated. Our fees also help with behavioral training and boarding.
