"Dedicated to the rescue and permanent placement of homeless pets"

View All Adoptable Pets

TCGC Animal League is a non-profit organization, founded in 2002. We are funded entirely by donations and rely totally on volunteers. Our pets are rescued from local animal shelters, and placed in foster homes until a permanent home can be found. Although we rescue many breeds, Bassets, Beagles, and Labrador Retrievers are our primary focus. We do not currently have a facility where these pets can be viewed, but once your application has be approved, arrangements can be made to meet the pet.

Donations and Foster Homes Needed!

TCGC is a non profit organization.  The economy has hurt everyone including the rescue of dogs and cats.  It is hard to rescue when you are putting so much into the dogs and cats food.  They do need shelter and food.

We have foster homes to keep them in, but the cost of boarding (when our foster homes are full), vetting and food are putting a toll on the budget of TCGC.  I know not everyone can foster or help take care of them but if you can give just a little bit to help with the food costs, it would free up other funds for vetting and boarding.

Our foster homes are full and we have many dogs in boarding facilities until they can be placed in foster homes. In an effort to get these rescues adopted or in foster homes, we are having some weekend adoption events at Petsmart in Kingsport at 2003 N Eastman Rd. All adoptions require a home visit and vet check approvals. Please check our facebook page for those announcements. If you can foster a dog for us, please let us know at adoptions@tcgcal.com or check out our Foster Application. Please come out and support us.

We know everyone is in a strain but please help feed our beautiful sweet rescues.  None deserved to be in a shelter.  Thanks for caring!

All checks should be written to "TCGC Animal League" and can be mailed to:

Planning for your Pet's Future

As a responsible guardian, it is important to think about who would care for your pets in the event of your inability, illness, or even death, and to implement a plan to prevent your pets from ending up in a shelter where their future remains uncertain. There are a few simple steps you can take to ensure that your pets are always cared for, even after you're gone.
