Who Is Taffy?
This rescue was founded in loving memory of Taffy, the greatest American Bulldog that ever was. With her kind demeanor, Taffy touched everyone she met. She was a registered therapy dog and an amazing "bully breed" ambassador. Sadly, her time on earth was cut short at just 9 years old due to cancer.
Her legacy lives on in the many dogs she helped assess and save for Friendly Giants Dog Rescue. Taffy worked her magic on some of the most challenging dogs, and helped them transform into model family pets. Because of Taffy, we will always hold a special 'soft spot' for bully breeds in need of some extra TLC.
At TLC, we are passionate about helping rescue dogs find their perfect humans. Our goal is to 'upcycle' homeless dogs by giving them the tools they need to succeed in their furever home. We accomplish this by having amazing fosters who volunteer their home, time and love to giving these dogs a second chance. In foster care we get to know their personality and their needs so that we can find the ultimate pairing of two-to-four-legger(s). We show them the ropes of being a human's best friend and then you -- the furever human -- can take it from there.
The majority of our dogs are rescued through the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and other remote communities in Northern Ontario and Quebec. TLC is not a rehoming agency, and will not be accepting owner surrenders.
We plan to set the bar high here at TLC with only the most ethical adoption and vetting protocols and standards. All dogs will come fully vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested and spayed/neutered.
Thank you for your support, we look forward to growing and expanding as a community based rescue!

Our rescue relies on the generosity of our volunteers and the public. Adopters pay a minimal adoption fee to help cover some of our extensive vetting costs. We rely heavily on our fundraising initiatives and generous donations from the public.
