“Being a LifeLine supporter is a rewarding experience for us in a very personal way. We have seen the truly remarkable accomplishments that Rebecca and her team have made over the last 15 years of our involvement. Just knowing how these wonderful animals are loved and cared for makes every day brighter for us and gives us hope for a better future.”

Using our EIN number (010599278), you can find LifeLine on Charity Navigator and Charity Watch, but we are ineligible for rating due to the county funding we receive. Charity Watch primarily lists national organizations, and LifeLine’s primary focus area is Metro Atlanta. We can be also found on Guidestar.


The work of LifeLine, including the care of the animals and our outreach and community programs, is funded by individual donors, corporations, and foundations. The funding from county contracts provides support for basic care of animals during the counties’ mandated stray-hold periods (3-5 days). All lifesaving programs outside of the scope of those contracts are the responsibility of paid for by LifeLine and our generous supporters. LifeLine is an IRS 501(c)(3) organization and donations to LifeLine are tax-deductible.
