Welcome to the TLC Humane Society

Dahlonega's Only No-Kill Shelter

TLC Humane Society, legally recognized as Dahlonega-Lumpkin County Humane Society, was founded in 1977 and is Dahlonega, Georgia's only no-kill shelter. 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 adoptions, and all of them need to find a good home.


TLC Humane Society is very active in the community, hosting adoption events almost every weekend on the beautiful Dahlonega Square and sometimes at other location nearby. In addtion, we hold many other activities throughout the year, such as the annual Rescue Run 5K in the spring and our annual Bark in the Park 5K and Festival in the fall.


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 the How To 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 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at:

1735 Red Oak Flats Road

Dahlonega, GA 30533
