Adoptable Pets in California
TLC is a dog rescue that focuses on small dogs under 15 pounds. We primarily work off of the kill lists at seven local shelters. We go after the 'left behinds' and 'do overs', believing those dogs (and puppies) need an animal advocate, dedicated to saving their life!

All of our dogs and puppies are fostered in private homes by volunteers. We do not have a kennel facility.

Do you need to find a loving home for your pet?

No-kill shelters do wonderful work, but as a result, are often inundated with pet surrenders. In the unfortunate scenario that you have to find a new home for your pet, please read through the rehoming solution and articles on this page before contacting the shelter.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

Updates to Dog with parvo from Tiny Loving Canines, Inc in Simi Valley, CA When TLC receives bad reviews they reach out to complaints employer and leaves a complaint with their employer. They want to take money from the public on gofundme.com but DELETES the "negative" but TRUE complaints from it. Then they contact their lawyer and have their lawyer contact the customer reviewer about their review. My dog did not make it and passed away from parvo. Needless to say TERRIBLE COMPANY.

TLC (Tiny Loving Canies Inc.) in Simi Valley, California sold me a puppy WITH PARVO. Did not inform me about this but was so eager and happy to take my $500 (the employee even said I know $500 is over the top but your paying to keep our company in business.) Shortly after having my new loved puppy I noticed extreme behavior/appearance changes. Took her to the vet and was informed the puppy has parvo. I call TLC and before mentioning anything about parvo Aubrey Lancaster who is an Assistant Manager tells me they will be refunding my $500 and the director Linda Nelson will be calling me. Linda Nelson calls shortly after and tells me my new puppy was with 4 other puppies and one had parvo. Which now means if my new puppy has it they all have it. I inform Linda Nelson my puppy has been hospitalized and now I'm occurring extreme pet bills. Linda then turned extremely rude. I tell her I would put this horrible experience on social media so no one else has to go through this. Linda says I'm a bully and wanted to hear nothing anymore and instead calls me a bitch and tells me to euthanize my new puppy and hangs the phone up. I call TLC back and Aubrey answers and is very brief with me. She refunds my $500 and hangs up. I just lost my dog who I've had for 10 years. I went to TLC because I was ready to care and grow with a puppy like I did with my previous dog. I'm a huge dog lover and right when I saw the puppy at TLC I fell in love. Just holding her brought tears to my eyes and reminded me of my dog who passed. My new puppy is in the hospital trying to recover and get rid of this parvo but there is no guarantee she will make it. Being told to just euthanize my dog was unbelievable yet alone being called a bitch. I highly recommend DO NOT buy from this place. Do not go through what I just did. I will be sure to spread this ALL over social media and everywhere on the internet to be sure this is the first thing that comes up when searching for your company online. As of: 2/13/15 Phone Numbers are- Linda: 805-405-1497 TLC: 805-527-7283
