SIMI VALLEY (CBSLA.com) — A rescue group known as Tiny Loving Canines, or TLC, in Simi Valley takes in dogs many consider un-adoptable.
“We take not only the beautiful dogs. We take the old dogs, the toothless dogs, the one-eyed dogs, the three-legged dogs. It doesn’t make any difference. If they need a home, they have one with us,” said Kathryn Rutherford, of Tiny Loving Canine, Inc.
Now, the rescue is in need of goodwill. After a dispute with its landlord, TLC says it was served with an eviction notice last week.
They have until Friday to find more than 50 dogs foster or permanent homes.
“We don’t want to turn them back into the shelter. We can’t do that,” Rutherford said.
But the rescue is running out of options and has lowered its adoption fee to $100.
The dogs are micro-chipped, spayed, and neutered. The price includes a visit to the veterinarian.
“Even if they don’t want a dog that might not be suitable to their eyes, if they’ll adopt with their heart, they’re gonna find a wonderful dog,” she said.
