TLC Canine Rescue Center
Founded in the year 1999, by Pauline Larsen, The TLC Canine Center is a shelter for homeless and abused dogs in the Midwest. The main physical shelter is currently based in Newell, Iowa, and is a small facility with space for about 24 dogs, but will soon be expanding to the Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Omaha, Nebraska areas to serve dogs all across the Midwest. This includes moving to a foster based model of care so that each dog can have the one-on-one attention needed to thrive.
TLC Canine Center is a registered 501(c)(3), nonprofit shelter for dogs. All three locations are staffed by volunteers. We are thankful for the many organizations and individuals that support us. Without them, we could not survive! We are always in need of financial support to help with the day to day care of the animals and the vet bills which never end. The initial cost of most dogs brought to the shelter is at least $150. This includes necessary shots, treatment for parasites, neutering or spaying, and any other needed care. Often there are additional medical bills as we determine the specific problems of the individual animal. The TLC is also responsible for the expenses for the TLC dogs that are in foster homes.
