LifeLine Animal Project isn’t your average animal welfare organization. We take a holistic approach to improving the standard of care for animals in Atlanta through management of the county shelters, adoption programs, spay and neuter clinics and community outreach efforts.
Since taking over management of DeKalb County Animal Services and Fulton County Animal Services in 2013, thousands of lives have been saved and adoptions have been increased by 150%!
Over 15,000 homeless animals (that's more than 40 a day!) enter our shelters each year. Our goal is that all healthy and treatable pets leave our shelters alive and find loving homes. It is a huge, continual effort to find homes for thousands of pets. How do we do it? Read more about how we’re transforming Atlanta into a no-kill community here.
Our Dog for the Day program is a great way for our shelter pups to get out of the shelter for the day and decompress! It's such a fun opportunity, not only for our volunteers, but for our dogs as well! Read what our volunteers had to say about their pup + their day out!
It's no secret that larger, metropolitan cities in the United States are faced with a roaming dog problem, including many of our neighborhoods in Atlanta. Some of these dogs are strays and some are owned, but all have one thing in common: they are usually uncared for, unsocialized and they sometimes pose a threat to public safety.
Live in a condo, apartment complex or town home? We've actually found that docile, medium-sized cats and dogs do really well in an apartment environment! Looking for a cuddle buddy that just wants to chill on the couch all day? Look no further than these apartment ready pets! (Please note, before adopting any pet, please check with your landlord or apartment complex to ensure they are pet friendly)
LifeLine's Sleepover Program has received a lot of attention lately! This is a great opportunity for both volunteers and shelter dogs. Learn more about our volunteer opportunities.
