Founded in 1977, TLC Humane Society is the only no-kill, non-profit shelter in Dahlonega, GA. We are a licensed non-profit 501(c)(3) rescue organization and have both dogs and cats and, often times, puppies and kittens available for adoption, and all of them need to find a good home.


We do our best to save as many animals as we can, but that's only possible with the help of our community and people like you. Check out our Help Page for more information on what you can do.


If you have any questions please give us a call at 706-864-2817 or send us an email.


You can visit us everyday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at:

1735 Red Oak Flats Road

Dahlonega, GA 30533


Elvis needs your help! His elbow joint closed too soon therefore his forearm bones are still growing causing him pain and leaving him to have trouble walking. We have surgery planned to fix this but need help paying for it. If you feel for Elvis, you can make a donation through PayPal, please note on your donation that it is for Elvis. We appreciate any support! 


Join or donate to our Strut Your Mutt Team. This is a competition between shelters across the country and we will prizes along the way and if we are the top fundraiser. So make a donation or join our team so you can ask your family and friends to donate and help us out!  Visit Strut Your Mutt and email with any questions.

Our goal is to get an additional building, where all of our dogs will be able to have indoor/outdoor climate controlled runs. We pull as many animals as we can from kill shelters in surrounding counties, but can’t continue to do that without you.  Please take a moment to read our story on our Go Fund Me page and if you can't donate, please share with your family and friends. Every little bit gets us closer to our goal!


All of our dogs and cats are

pre-loved and socialized. Our adoption fee covers:

  • Spay / Neuter

  • Microchip

  • Routine Tests

  • Vaccinations

  • Heartworm preventative

Pet Of The Week

Elvis has done amazing since his surgery last week and you know what would make it even better? If he had a forver home to go to when he is ready after a few more weeks. Elvis is doing wonderful in his foster home but we would love for some one to pre-adopt him so he would have a home waiting for him when he is all healed up! If you can't adopt Elvis but still want to help, you can make a donation to help pay for his surgery.


We depend solely on donations and fundraising activities, click below to see the many ways you can support TLC and our wonderful dogs and cats while they are waiting on their forever homes.
