cuddle buddy

Last Friday, March 23rd, we held a Cuddle Buddy contest on our Facebook page! We were on a mission: to find the cuddliest, snuggliest foster pet in the ATL and award them the Gold Medal in Cuddling! And so that's what we did...

Spring is coming blog post

Spring is on its way and we couldn't be more excited! When the weather gets warmer in Atlanta, that means our pups get out of the shelter more through our Dog for the Day, Sleepover and foster programs! We want to make sure we set our volunteers and dogs up for success this Spring and we need your help!

Puppy MillThe Georgia State Senate is considering a harmful bill, S.B. 418, that would strip towns of their authority to ban the sale of cruelly-bred dogs in their local pet stores.
Most puppies sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, cruel breeding facilities that prioritize profit over the health and well being of animals. Dogs in these operations are often kept in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions without adequate veterinary care, food, water or socialization.
Over 240 localities across the nation—including 8 in Georgia—have enacted their own local laws to keep cruelly-bred puppies out of their pet stores and instead promote the adoption of dogs and cats from rescues, humane societies and shelters.
If passed, S.B. 418, would invalidate existing local bans, prevent other communities from passing similar laws, and roll back the progress we’ve made toward minimizing puppy mill cruelty in Georgia.
Please help stop this harmful bill by emailing your state senator today!

Pancho 1Saving every healthy and treatable animal that comes into our DeKalb and Fulton County shelters can be a costly undertaking. Although LifeLine receives funding from the counties to run the shelters, we must raise an additional $2 million to cover extended shelter care, community outreach programs, marketing programs and extensive medical costs.
