TLC Humane Shelter
I joined my friend, author Delilah S. Dawson at the TLC Humane Society in Dahlonega, Georgia. We spent time with cats and dogs who needed a little human interaction. To be honest, it was nice, having been on the road for a bit, to run around outside with the dogs and to quasi-nap in the sun with the kittens.
More about the TLC Humane Society (from their website):
TLC Humane Society, legally recognized as Dahlonega-Lumpkin County Humane Society, was founded in 1977 and is Dahlonega’s only no-kill shelter. We are a licensed non-profit 501(c)(3) rescue organization and have both dogs and cats and, often times, puppies and kittens available for adoption, and all of them need to find a good home.
The shelter sits on 5.87 acres of beautiful property which includes a dog park, walking trail, small block house with 2 cat rooms, a kitten room and 3 dogs runs, plus a puppy palace with 6 dog runs and 16 large dog kennels.
TLC Humane Society is very active in the community, hosting adoption events almost every weekend on the beautiful Dahlonega Square and at many other locations nearby. In addition, we hold several activities and events throughout the year, such as the annual Bark in the Park Festival in the fall.
We do our best to save as many animals as we can, but that’s only possible with the help of our community and people like you. We are especially happy to find new volunteers who share out commitment for the animals of Lumpkin County and surrounding North Georgia area. Check out our Get Involved for more information on what you can do. A helping hand is always appreciated!
