Meet & Greet – Phoenixville, PA 11:00 AM
We’d like to thank the students, faculty & staff at Stewart Middle School for inviting us for a visit to speak to them about responsible pet ownership & the life saving work we do.
In the month leading up to our visit, the kids collected donations of supplies for our dogs and were a very generous & attentive audience. We’d like to thank Ms. Bruno & TLC alum Baby for helping arrange our visit, and for everyone who donated food & supplies to us. Cassandra, Mr. Needles & Socks had a blast hanging out to dole out some puppy love.
We know a lot of you were wondering what the results of the 2017 Wags For Warriors campaign were and we’re pleased to announce that TLC received $8,460 in donations to the campaign this year! TLC and our beneficiary veteran’s organizations were each eligible to receive up to $3,000 in matching donations. Donations to TLC from Giving Tuesday (Nov. 28) through the end of the year were automatically matched up to the cap and the pay it forward donations were distributed across the other organizations as directed by our donors.
To make sure the benefiting organizations had the best chance of reaching the maximum pay it forward donation, we let the donors know when orgs reached the cap to confirm they were OK with the match to their donation being split across the remaining organizations (we also directed the match for donations in which the donor did not specifically designate a charity/respond to our emails to organizations that hadn’t met the cap).
Jack is a 9-year-old Lab-Bully mix who was a loving family dog that lived with another dog & 4 cats, and happily played with children until addiction took its toll on his parents After his dad died, his mom lost the remaining coping skills she had so the neighbors stepped in to help him find rescue with To Love a Canine (TLC). Jack was vetted up to date and placed with one of our fabulous foster homes while waiting for someone to notice what an awesome dog he is and adopt him. We knew it would take longer for Jack to find a family because not only is he senior dog, but he’s also a “pit bull” and many people passed over this sweet, gentle & well-mannered pup solely due to those reasons.
As we headed into the holidays, Jack decided to take matters into his own paws and write a letter to Santa that resulted in TLC’s 2000th adoption and an awful lot of happy tears
We wish you a Furry Christmas and hope your day is filled with as much joy as Jack and his furever family are having!
From all of our adorable adoptables & the humans who foster them, we wish you a Furry Christmas!
