True Love Canine Rescue is a non-profit canine rescue in Athens, GA. TLC started in 2008 by Chris and Michelle Rabold shortly after they rescued Lucky, now known as Bitsy, from the Atlanta Humane Society. Lucky was brought to the AHS with a hunting knife embedded in her skull. After seeing the story on the news, the Rabold's immediately set out to adopt this beautiful sweet Pit Bull. Saving Bitsy, coupled with their own experiences over the past few years fostering dogs themselves, inspired them to start True Love Canine Rescue. TLC Rescue incorporated in September of last year. Chris' involvement with Widespread Panic as their longtime sound engineer served as the catalyst to putting a group of local musicians who just happen to be dog lovers together for this special event.
On Sunday May 10, 2009 you can also participate in the inaugural TLC Rescue Mother's Day 5k Race/Walk. More info available on the benefit show, the 5k Race/Walk and more at www.truelovecaninerescue.com.
