Tender Loving Crested Rescue

Tender Loving Crested Rescue (TLCR) is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused, abandoned and neglected Chinese Cresteds. We are currently a private family rescue, operating in the Houston, Texas area. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Any donations made to us are tax deductible. We are limited to just the Houston and surrounding areas at this time but will help with other areas any way we can!


TLCR’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome Chinese Cresteds that have found themselves in less than desirable situations. We also strive to educate the community on the unnecessary  euthanization of dogs of all breeds due to overpopulated shelters. TLCR provides owners and breeders of Chinese Cresteds an alternative to turning dogs into a shelter. We will do everything in our power to help!

TLRC will also continue to spread the word and inform people on how to prevent overpopulation of all breeds – Spay/Neuter and Adopt!
