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 16,000 homeless animals 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. Are you IN?
We believe in addressing the issues that cause so many pets to become homeless in the first place. Whether we’re providing 30 free spay/neuter surgeries a week to pets like Mary’s best friend Sol, offering free veterinary services and pet supplies at our Healthy Pets events or performing another low-cost spay or neuter at a LifeLine Spay & Neuter clinic, where we’ve performed 120,000 to date, our programs help prevent pet overpopulation and keep pets out of the shelters and with the families who love them!
Did you know that community cats (or feral cats) are an intergal part of humane animal welfare? affective community cat programs include a TNR (trap-neuter-return) program, which aims to trap the cat(s), spay/neuter them and then return them to the same location. Such programs provide life-saving options for cats who might otherwise be euthanized. Additionally, overtime they reduce the population of community cat colonies. Below are some frequently asked questions + how you can help Atlanta become a lifesaving community!
Spring and summer months are our highest intake months of the year! Our county shelters receive an average of 40-60 animals per day, especially mamas and their puppies and orphaned kittens! And while we are so happy they found us, we need your help keeping them safe from illness. Here are five ways you can help during puppy and kitten season:
Hi friends! Otter here -
I’m going on week 12 of life, and just wanted to tell you about all the cool things that have been happening so far!
In case you haven’t yet heard, I was born in the shelter. The shelter was nice and the people were friendly, but it was no place for a puppy. So me, my 8 siblings and my mom got to go stay with a foster in their home until we were old enough to be adopted. She took such good care of us but alas, it was time for us all to go our separate ways.
This November 27th, we are asking our community to show your love for Atlanta's animals this Georgia Gives Day on #GivingTuesday! Our goal is to raise $50,000 for the 50 homeless animals that come through our shelter doors every single day. Here's how you can help:
To some, Chauncey is just an old, beat up shelter dog. But to us, he's pretty much perfect. Chauncey came to us a few months ago and we knew immediately that there was something special about him. He was gentle and docile and great with everyone he met. We knew that no matter what, we had to find him the perfect forever home.
LifeLine's Pets for Life program is celebrating its 10,000th spay and neuter! This is an incredible milestone for the program and for LifeLine.
