TLC was organized in 1977 as the Dahlonega-Lumpkin County Humane Society by a dedicated group of people vitally concerned about animal welfare. Today, TLC remains an organization of volunteers devoted to saving animals from suffering and cruelty. Based in North Georgia, we are 100% supported by fundraising activities and the donations of citizens concerned with the welfare of animals.
TLC is raising funds to begin DNA testing all adoptable dogs as part of our new “Who’s Your Daddy?” program. Dogs become a key part of a prospective adopter’s family and a simple fifty-dollar DNA test is a valuable tool to determine the background of a dog and any breed traits they may possess. The DNA tests will also help our shelter enhance our marketing efforts while significantly boosting the number and quality of adoptions. Please give today!
