To Love a Canine Rescue, Inc. (TLC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all breed, foster based, dog rescue operating in suburban Philadelphia, PA.

Our mission is to rescue and find permanent homes for abandoned, stray and surrendered dogs in order to minimize the needless euthanizing of animals. Our vision is to make the right connections between our rescued dogs and families in order to give our dogs their final, happy, loving homes. 

TLC strives to be a valuable resource to our community by working with struggling dog owners and by providing education on responsible dog ownership including the importance of spaying/neutering, behavior training, heartworm testing & prevention, and microchip implanting.


At TLC, our adoption process is simple and straight-forward. We want you to find a new family member and we want our rescues to find their forever home.


TLC is a volunteer-driven organization. Volunteering with us isn’t just a great way to help out dogs in need - it’s also a fun way to get involved in the community and make new friends.


From Meet & Greets to fundraisers to 5K’s, TLC has events near you that are for the whole family. All are welcome at our events where you can meet available dogs, hang out with volunteers and support our cause!
