We recently rescued several senior dogs. In order to place them in homes before winter, we are lowering our adoption fee for Seniors to $50 (with approved Home visits and Vet checks). Click here to see a list of the top 10 reasons to adopt a senior dog.

Why Do Dogs Growl?
Dogs growl for a variety of reasons. Growling is understandable. Dogs don’t have many choices in vocal sounds, and many of them come across to humans as growling. When a dog needs something from us, a dog with some initiative will try to find a way to ask rather than waiting around for us to think of it...[read more]
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 Saturday adoption events at Petsmart in Kingsport at 2003 N Eastman Rd and slashing our adoption fees to $75 - half of the original price because of necessity to find homes. We will also have some Sunday adoption events at Petsmart in Kingsport - check our facebook page for those announcements. This reduced adoption fee is for the animals at boarding facilities only, pending home visit and vet reference check approvals. You will be able to see these dogs on the Available Pets page with stars (*****) beside their names. If you can foster a dog for us, please let us know at email@example.com or check out our Foster Application. All adopters will be given a coupon for a free bath at local groomers. Please come out and support us.

Hale Pet Door manufactures high-end pet doors in the U.S.A. and supports rescues too. If you are considering installing a pet door in your home, check them out at www.halepetdoor.com. Hale Pet Doors can go through walls, doors, screens, French doors, windows units and sliding glass doors.
Customers who have adopted a pet from a legitimate rescue organization or shelter and who purchase one of their pet doors will receive 10 percent off the cost of the door. Hale will also send a check for that same amount to the rescue organization as a gift to them. It is their way of saying "thank you for opting to adopt and thereby save a life."
TCGC Animal League is set up to benefit from this program.
PetMeds graciously supports our cause.
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.
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:
