Welcome to TLC Humane Society, located in Dahlonega!
TLC Humane Society was organized in 1977 as the Dahlonega-Lumpkin County Humane Society by a dedicated group of people who were vitally concerned about animal welfare. TLC remains an organization of volunteers devoted to saving animals from suffering and cruelty. We are based in Dahlonega, Georgia and are supported by fundraising activities and the donations of citizens concerned about the welfare of companion animals.
The abandonment of animals produced by careless over breeding is the primary problem the TLC Humane Society addresses. We are dedicated to policies and programs that promote non-lethal solutions to animal overpopulation. We are also dedicated to helping unwanted animals and teaching humane treatment for all living creatures
Help TLC Improve with Adopt-A-Panel!
TLC Humane Society is asking for your help. We are the only no-kill shelter in Lumpkin County and we operate entirely on your generous donations. Our tireless volunteers help us find homes for the county's unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats.
After years of creatively patching holes in our chain link fencing with grill racks and refrigerator shelves, we've reached the point that our close-to-dilapidated fencing needs to be replaced to house our dogs safely and keep them out of harm's way. The Home Depot, our partner in this project, has graciously offered to cover half of the $150.00 cost of each 10ft x 6ft panel. With seventy new panels, we'll be able to replace all the kennels with new fencing, but we simply don't have the funds available to cover the $5,000.00 expense of this project.
We're searching for seventy big-hearted friends of animals who are willing to adopt just one of the needed panels. For a tax deductible donation of $75.00 you can Adopt-a-Panel in memory of or in honor of a much loved and missed person or pet. Your name and the recipient's name will be permanently displayed at the shelter for you to visit and view anytime you wish as our thanks and the animal's thanks for your generosity.
To Adopt-A-Panel, please click on the donate link below and include the following information: Your name, Address, City, State, Zip, Phone # (only used in case of questions), Donor name, Honoree's name, and whether it's in Honor of or in Memory of.
Thanks so much for helping TLC improve!
