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.

TWO BIG WAYS TO HELP TLC HUMANE SOCIETY RIGHT NOW
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 email@example.com 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:

Hello, my name is Bella! Im a young girl looking for a home that will love me and keep me safe. You know, safe from sharks... zombies... giant man-eating squirrels... Ok, so Im a bit of a worrier, its something Im working on and could really use a confident role model. Im super snuggly and LOVE to play. I would love to play with your dogs or older kids, just as long as we can stay out of the ocean, and away from possible avalanches, erupting volcanoes and crop circles... Oh bother, there I go again! If you give me a try you will be rewarded with all the love and affection I can offer (which is a LOT!), there are just some confidence boosting quirks to help me get through at the beginning. Can we work on it together?
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.
Join the fun and stay in the loop on our adoptions, events and super cute pictures!
