Program will expand LifeLine’s reach in supporting Atlanta’s underserved communities

Pets_for_Life.jpgATLANTA — ( August 2, 2017)  LifeLine Animal Project is excited to announce they have taken over The Humane Society of the United States’ (HSUS) Pets for Life program in Atlanta as an official mentorship group, providing direct, hands-on community outreach and free services to people and pets in NW and SW Atlanta. “The Pets for Life program adds vital, positive community engagement to LifeLine’s animal service operations in Fulton County and the City of Atlanta,” says LifeLine CEO Rebecca Guinn. “With Pets for Life, LifeLine will be providing free veterinary care, services and information to pets and people who otherwise have limited or nonexistent access to pet wellness resources, transforming animal services to a community-driven resource for public safety and a better quality of life for pets and the people who love them.”

“LifeLine Animal Project has demonstrated an impressive initiative to bring pet care resources that are often out of reach to people and pets in underserved areas of Atlanta,” said Amanda Arrington, director for The HSUS’ Pets for Life program. “The HSUS is proud to support LifeLine in accomplishing their mission of serving their community comprehensively.”

With an estimated 23 million pets living in poverty with their people in the United States, Pets for Life addresses the critical lack of accessible and affordable animal welfare services, resources, and information for people and pets in underserved communities. In the Pets for Life program focus area in Atlanta, 38% of people live below the poverty line with little or no access to pet care services.  For more information on the program, click here.
