Tender Care Animal Rescue (TCAR) formed in 2011, after all the sad and heartbreaking stories about shelters euthanizing adoptable animals for treatable conditions and behaviors do to the space available. Out of unselfish love, it was clear and decided right then and there more had to be done to care for and help these misplaced and often neglected animals.
