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 back yard, decided to ban them as service dogs on their flights.

We take a very different stance from Delta on "pit bull type dogs.” Because we see every single animal that comes through our shelter doors as an individual, we evaluate each of them based on known behavior, not assumed breed. And we welcome with open arms the thousands of dogs with big, blocky heads who come into our care.

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

May Lifesaving Photo

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!

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.

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.
