Here at Scripps Radio Knoxville, our community is our family. So we're taking time every month on all 4 Scripps Radio Knoxville stations to spotlight local charitable causes that serve our community's needs with our 'Giving Light Initiative'. Each chosen non-profit cause receives $10,000 worth of promotional and commercial support to highlight their charity and the selfless work they do to help our friends and neighbors in East Tennessee.
This month's charity is Adopt a Golden Knoxville
Adopt a Golden Knoxville is a volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to finding warm, loving permanent homes for Golden Retrievers in order to prevent them from becoming strays or adding to the shelter overpopulation. The focus is on assisting owner that can no longer care for the Golden due to unfortunate financial or other personal circumstances. Golden Retrievers, regardless of medical needs or age, will receive comprehensive evaluation, spay/neutering services, veterinary care, behavioral training if required, and safe passage into a permanent loving home. In addition to providing those service, Adopt a Golden Knoxville is intent on educating and assisting the metropolitan Knoxville and East Tennessee general public, and dog owners specifically, regarding issues such as responsible pet ownership, spay/neutering, obedience training, and veterinary/specialists referrals. Our goal is to reduce the number of Golden Retrievers sent to shelters.
