Happy Tails of the Week

TLC made 14 families very happy this week.
TLC saved 14 lives and gave 14 dogs a new beginning!

Did you know there are ways you can help TLC without adopting a dog? You can like and share our social media posts. Spreading the word is very helpful and you never know, one of your friends might fall in love with one of our dogs.

Another way is attending one of our fundraisers. Raffles For Ruffs is less than a month away. Over 50 baskets will be raffled off this year and if we’ve added a poker tournament this year. Win a cash prize at poker or win a raffle basket or two!! We hope to see you here.

The winter weather last week didn’t stop TLC pups from finding their furever homes. To be honest, we’re pretty sure no amount of snow could keep TLC’s amazing adopters away from their new furry family members!

Did you know that one of the easiest ways you can support TLC is by leaving a review on Facebook or Google? Check out what some of our reviewers have to say:

I am so thankful for the amazing staff here. They went the extra mile to make sure the adoption process was quick and easy. Now thanks to them I have an amazing new addition to my family. Thank you guys for making it possible to have such an amazing little furry baby like Palmer!
— Holly P.
I love this organization for so many reasons! Everyone is passionate about saving lives, connecting the rescues with loving furever families, and putting the well-being of the dogs above everything. [...] As an adopter-turned-volunteer, I cannot recommend TLC enough.
— Kate B.
I have worked with TLC on a personal, and professional basis, and find them to be one of the best! You can tell that their hearts are with every animal they are rescuing and take great pride in what they do. My work had also hosted and event with them and they went above and beyond to make sure it went smoothly. Highly suggest!

It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.

When people know you foster dogs, they always inevitably say or ask one of two things: “you should keep him/her!” or “how can you keep saying goodbye to all of them?”. It’s so easy at times to tell people that if we kept them all, we couldn’t save others. That saying goodbye means we can save another. That the greater importance is making sure the dogs always find their respite with us until their final destination.

But then a dog like Afton comes along. And challenges you to answer those questions and statements with the same confidence you always do. A dog like Afton makes you hesitate, makes you question why you might give him to someone else. Until you see him with his people, his family, his forever. And that’s what makes fostering worth it.

So we will give those same answers, to those same questions, but we will have tears to choke back this time and maybe other times . But we will do it all over again. Because a dog like Afton, who spent nearly a year in the shelter, who lights up a room when he enters it, who never knew love and a warm place until TLC saved him, is worth the piece of our hearts he took with him.

So we kiss him goodbye as he starts his forever with a beyond PERFECT family and we save the next one. The next one who needs us and who will fill the spot on the dog bed Afton left vacant when he found his forever family. You will always be one of the most special fosters. We love you, Affy. Have the best life imaginable!

To Love A Canine in the Community

TLC volunteers and fosters like taking their dogs out to meet the public. One of the ways we do that are Meet & Greets. The more people who see our dogs, the quicker they find their forever home. We’re out weekly at pet stores to show off our dogs and talk about how people can adopt from us and volunteer and foster with us. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page and our website events page to see where we will be and when we’ll be in your area.

We don’t just visit pet stores. We take our dogs to yoga classes, Pilates classes, community days, high schools and senior living facilities to name a few places. We’re always looking for new places to showcase our dogs. Would you like to have us come to your event? Feel free to contact us and we’ll see if we can make it happenM

Another week in the books and 18 more lives were saved!

We find dogs homes, yes, but we do much more than that. We give the dogs something they didn’t have before they hitched their freedom rides. We give them a chance.

We give them a chance at life.
We give them a chance to be happy.
We give them a chance to be loved.
We give them a chance to trust and love.

The families that adopt from us take a chance on us to deliver - and we do. Don’t all dogs deserve a chance?? We think they do. Would you like to help us give dogs the chance they deserve? Click here.

To Love A Canine - Working hard to give our dogs a well deserved new beginning.

This was a big week for TLC! Saturday morning we welcomed 23 dogs who took an 18 hour freedom ride from Mississippi. Our super fosters welcomed them with open arms and warm homes to get them ready for their turn to find a new home.

Not only did we take in 23 dogs, but we created new tomorrows for 33 dogs. 33 dogs are safe, warm and loved by their forever families thanks to the hard working teams at TLC. In the first 13 days of 2019, we have placed 57 dogs into their new homes!

Would you like to join us in our quest to help those dogs that need it? We are always in need of volunteers and fosters. Follow this link to find out how you can join us.

Happy Tails of the Week

New year. New beginnings. New tomorrows.

Week one of 2019 is in the books...we gave 20 dogs new beginnings and new tomorrows with their new forever families. 20 dogs took long freedom rides from down south and trusted us to save them and we didn’t let them down.

We started strong in 2019 and we won’t slow down...until they all have a home.
