Mission Statement & Goals

TLC Humane Society volunteers have been serving the North Georgia and surrouding area for more than 30 years at no cost to the taxpayers. Stray animals have been reduced by thousands through our rigid policy of having each animal spayed or neutered prior to adoption. As many of our animals are obtained from facilities that euthanize animals, countless animals lives have been saved and forever homes found. We want all animals loved and cared for.


Mission Statement: TLC Humane Society provides compassionate care for dogs and cats by facilitating adoption and promoting responsible pet ownership in our community.

Strategic Focus: To continually expand and improve shelter operations and programs in order to enhance care for shelter animals, facilitate adoptions, educate the community on spay-neuter and pet care, and help eliminate euthanasia in Lumpkin County and surrounding areas.
Current Initiatives: Increase off-site adoptions, media exposure of adoptable pets, fundraising efforts and community education programs.
