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


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
