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.
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.
Sometimes you just want to remind one of your favorite dogs that there's more to life than the shelter. Magnum had a great time at a local park with two of our volunteers on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. He was a gentleman and soaked up all the love given to him on his special outing.
There's something special about a pup with a big ol' head and a smile that lights up the room! In fact, we love these blocky-heads so much, that we decided to celebrate them on the 17th. This year, we celebrated St. Pitty's Day with $17 adoptions and lots of smiles! Check out our St. Pitty's Day staff picks below!
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.
