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.
Richie came to us after a severe head trauma. Because of this injury, it causes him to walk or run in circles and can also cause him to have seizures. But with the proper medication and a little love, Richie spends his days just like any normal dog: romping around the yard and giving lots of kisses!
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!
It's sweater weather, ya'll, and our pups are so excited for the cooler temperatures! Since dogs can't really have Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, we decided to do one better: we created a pumpkin patch for them filled with treats and cuddles. Scroll for a few of the adorable photos!

Yusuf moved from Clayton County to the Home Park neighborhood within the past couple of years. Since his wife died, he hasn’t had anyone to help him care for himself. Wheelchair ridden, Yusuf is paralyzed from the waist down and also suffers from severe open wounds on his lower extremities, both complications of his extreme diabetic condition.
Yusuf is well known around the neighborhood for always carrying treats to give to dogs and cats he happens to meet as he ventures out to the mosque where he worships. And Yusuf is also well known for his trusty sidekick, Beau.
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.
