GOOD TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY AND THANKSGIVING
FROM THE TLC CANINE CENTER
The TLC Canine Center, aka TLC Animal Shelter, located ONLY in Iowa, has successfully reclaimed its identity. You may now safely access our website: TLC Canine Center., and our firstname.lastname@example.org. or on our Facebook page. It has been a stressful process to regain control of all our our TLC domains which were the victim of Corporate Identity Theft, but thanks to our VERY talented Ellen, it is regained, and we are moving forward with a positive attitude.
Thank you to all of our wonderful friends who have encouraged and supported us during this difficult time. We would love to hear from you...and if you would like to thank Ellen, you may post a note for her on our website, or our Facebook page: Facebook.com/TLCCanineCenterNewell/
Through the entire ordeal, we have tried (sometimes unsuccessfully) to hang on to the thought: "Don't sacrifice your peace trying to point out someone's true colors...Lack of character always rewards itself in the end."
WE ARE BLESSED and we would love to hear from you....contact us on our website, our facebook, or by e-mail at email@example.com
Animal rescue organizations have been working trelessly to improve conditions in the horrendous puppy mills thriving throughout the entire country. This shameful animal welfare problem has been allowed to fester for decades, and as we begin a new year, we implore people to initiate positive actions. Mary Lahay is the president of Iowa Voters for Companion animals, a non-radical Iowa grass roots organization whose sole purpose is to better protect our helpless animals. Only by working together is it possible to change laws, and stop the incredibly cruel and inhumane conditions that flourish in puppy mills. To receive more information, or receive regular e-mail alerts, sign up at www.iowavca.org or contact Mary Lahay at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 515-556-5949......If you are not convinced to get involved, I challenge you to google, "puppy Mill Photos"
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 carefully screened because we want the relationship to work, both for the sake of the people and the sake of the dog. An adoption agreement must be signed regarding proper care of the animal, and we send the dog on a temporary basis (an overnighter, or a weekender) to see how the dog and the humans interact. Usually the relationship works; if not, we gladly bring the dog back to the shelter. For sixteen years, we have re-homed more than two hundred dogs every year, with fewer than a dozen returned to the shelter..
