WITH WHOM WE COME IN CONTACT*
BLESS THE ANIMALS: THEY HAVE NO VOICE; THEY HAVE NO CHOICE
The TLC Canine Center provides shelter and responsible care for abandoned and homeless dogs, caring for these frightened, displaced animals until we are able to re-home them in forever, loving homes. We are a designated 501c3 not-for-profit organization, with no public funding, so we must operate in the most cost-effective way. We rely entirely on volunteer help. There are NO paid staff members.
Our goal is to enhance community attitudes about responsible pet guardianship. We conduct classes in area school classrooms and also offer instruction for adults. We encourage greater levels of respect, responsibility, and compassion toward both the humans and the animals with whom we share our lives.
We realize that we can’t save all the homeless animals, but we help those we can, working within the framework of the civil laws to protect both the dogs, and human parties involved. We require that all TLC animals be spayed or neutered, and receive any needed medical attention. Potential homes are screened very carefully before placing a canine, always stressing the fact that a long term commitment is involved.
Why do we do what we do? Simply for the love of animals.
COMPASSION, KINDNESS, GENTLENESS, AND PATIENCE…
toward our fellow humans, and toward all the voiceless creatures that are so dependent upon us…
We would love to hear from you because we believe that by working together, we can make the world a safer, healthier, happier place for needy dogs!!!

TLC's criteria for accepting a dog is NEED...we do not discriminate by breed, age, or health. There is always a waiting list, so we work with a network of other legimimate shelters and rescue groups. There is no time limit on how long we keep a dog. Several badly abused dogs have lived at the TLC for more than a year before we found them loving, forever caregivers. A few remained their entire lives at the TLC or a TLC sponsored home.
Pawtential adopters are careful
