Our Shelter Superstars are all ready to go home with you today! They are already spayed/neutered, vaccinated and have a microchip. Their adoption fee is waived and they cannot wait to be your new BFF!

With over 900 dogs currently in our care, we are completely out of space! There is not a single space left at Fulton or DeKalb County Animal Services. We are expecting 40-60 new animals every single day and have nowhere to put them. We are in desperate need of temporary foster homes for some really awesome dogs. Check out the dogs available for our foster program below!

If you cannot foster right now, you can donate supplies, like crates, food, leashes, collars by dropping off at the shelter location nearest you or you can make a monetary donation here.

Pit Bull Facts

Whether you love them or you hate them, everyone has an opinion about them. Pit bull type dogs have become a highly contentious subject over the past few years. And just recently, Delta, a company in our own backyard, decided to ban them as service dogs on their flights. 

We take a very different stance than Delta on pit bull type dogs. We judge every single animal that comes through our shelter doors as individuals. We judge them based on their known behavior, not their assumed breed. And we welcome dogs with big, blocky heads with open arms.

Still on the fence about pit bull type dogs? Check out a few facts:

Dear Delta,

I write you this letter with both an open and a broken heart. I understand that a negative experience may have led you to arrive at the decisions that you have made, but I hope you will take this opportunity to see things from another point of view.

May was another great month for Atlanta's homeless animals! We held our Healthy Pets DeKalb event at Wade Walker Park, where we provided free vaccinations, spay/neuter vouchers, microchips, pet supplies and more to DeKalb County residents. We hosted a fee-waived adoption event over Memorial Day weekend, where we celebrated 189 happily-ever-afters. And we launched our #Squats4LifeLine campaign, where we challenged Atlanta to do 10 squats for LifeLine or donate $10!

As Sumeet is leaving our organization for another adventure, we wanted to share with you one of our most dedicated volunteers. Sumeet has been instrumental for our organization, from dog-walking to fostering cats from a hoarding case. But our favorite thing about Sumeet is his ability to approach difficult situations with a smile. You will never meet a more friendly or compassionate person, and for that, we are so thankful. Read more about Sumeet's story in our latest volunteer profile:

Some shelter dogs – such as those who are shut down or have special needs – desperately need someone to believe in them. Luckily for them, LifeLine Volunteer Ed Dobar is that guy.

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:

Big Valley was adopted from our DeKalb location four years ago. He came into our care as a cruelty case; he had been shot and had wounds all over his body. We were thrilled when Anthony, his wife and his six grandkids decided to adopt Big Valley! We knew it was a perfect match from the start.

But now, Anthony and his family need our help. Due to financial hardships, they lost their home and were forced to move into temporary housing without Big Valley. We agreed to hold Big Valley for the family until they could get back on their feet and find affordable, pit bull friendly housing.

Anthony and his family come up to our shelter every week to visit him. They bring him treats and walk him and give him lots of love. And they shed tears every time they have to leave him.

This is Big Valley's family, and we want to do everything in our power to keep them together.
