Tamara L. Canino, Founder of TLC Animal Rescue PR. I was born in Dorado, Puerto Rico, and was established in the town of Dorado, although after the years I left for the United States. In 2009 returns to the island, motivated by a job offer and was from that moment that “Tammy” as she is known, began this journey of animal rescue. Arriving at PR, she encountered the problem that exists for Feral or stray animals. Initially it began with just feeding all the dogs that she saw. This was all, since she did not have neither experience nor resources to do more so. However the Critical Situation that faced this Island with abandoned and unwanted animals in the streets affected her so much that she decided to do more for them.
It was then when i began to collaborate with other organizations to provide support as a Foster Home, economic, transporting dogs to different places and moving them to U.S. With time I decided to create my own organization. TLC Animal Rescue, PR, is an organization that is registered in the Department of State and is a 501 c (3) Not for Profit Organization. Currently the organization focuses on education to society and prevention through sterilization, castration, and vaccination. We give refuge to animals in the street and offer them love, respect and treatment that they deserve while they are adopted or sent to No-Kill Shelters or Organizations in the Mainland
