Adoption Kim Knoxville needs your help to save more dogs. The event is a way to raise money and raise awareness while having fun outdoors.
KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Adopting a golden Knoxville needs the community’s help to save more dogs from harm. That’s why they created their fundraiser, Gold in the Park.
“GnP was created to help raise additional funds to help adopt Golden Knoxville’s growing financial needs to support rescued golden retrievers during these crazy Covid times,” says AGK’s website.
The event will fill West Knoxville’s Lakeside Park with panting dogs, belly scratches and Frisbees. While there will be plenty of puppies to pet, there is also plenty of entertainment for those with two legs.
There will be live music from Atlanta-based AGK adopters and his band, The Southside Band. There will also be food trucks, beer and groceries available for purchase.
Children’s activities and entertainment are also not hard to find at the event.
Fundraiser at Lakeside Park on June 2 from 5-8pm
Admission is $10 for adults, but children under 18 and dogs are admitted free.
Adopt a Golden Knoxville began in 2010 with three women with a shared interest in establishing a foster-based golden retriever rescue in East Tennessee.
“The purpose of this rescue organization is to help golden people in need of homes, build relationships, and educate the public about responsible dog ownership,” the nonprofit’s website states.
Since 2010, AGK has rescued more than 1,200 Golden Retrievers, Golden Mixes, Labs and other retriever breeds.
