The TLC Canine Center in Newell, Iowa, is a shelter for homeless and abused dogs. TLC dogs are not caged. They all have heated and cooled indoor homelike rooms with pet doors giving them access to outside yards. We are a small facility with space for about 24 dogs, so there is never enough room for all the dogs that need care.
The shelter was opened simply because of the tremendous need in this area. It is a registered 501 C 3 facility that is a totally volunteer center. There are no paid employees. The entire operation is run by volunteer workers.
We are thankful for many organizations and individuals that support the shelter. Without them, we could not survive. We are appreciative of good homes, and financial support to help with the day to day care of the animals, and the vet bills which never end.
