Home for the Homeless with TLC

TLC is Ventura County's only full-time, all-volunteer animal rescue.  We have long struggled to find a permanent home in the past 7 years where saving dog and cat lives is not a temporary thing, but a permanent passion and cause.   Commerical landlords do not like to lease to rescue organizations and we know a permanent place of our own will be the solution to many of the obstacles we have had to overcome, which distract us from the mission of saving lives.

We now have the opportunity to buy a place of our own and continue on with our work, but we need the community's help for the down payment on the property, which is right here in Simi Valley!  

If this property purchase cannot happen, it is a very good chance that TLC will fold and go out of business once and for all, but your donations will be refunded back to you if we do shut down TLC.  

If we can all make this happen, it will be a hometown legacy for us and for our children plus their children's children, knowing we cared enough to stop the needless killing of healthy, adoptable dogs and cats, creating and maintaining No-Kill in Ventura County!
