Organization’s Flagship to Feature Full-Service, Low-Cost Veterinary Clinic and Adoption Center
ATLANTA (March 7, 2018) -- LifeLine Animal Project, the lifesaving non-profit that was the first to obtain no-kill levels at the DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services shelters it manages, announced the launch of their first capital campaign to fund the new LifeLine Community Animal Center. The new 25,000 square foot facility will feature a full-service, low-cost veterinary clinic that will be open to the public, and a premiere adoption center which will increase the adoption capacity by 2,000 annually. The goal of the Community Animal Center is to keep more animals from being surrendered to shelters by providing affordable wellness care up front, while helping every adoptable animal that comes into their shelters find a forever home. LifeLine currently cares for 30,000 animals a year at its clinics and shelters.
According to LifeLine Animal Project CEO Rebecca Guinn, the new facility will significantly expand LifeLine’s reach. “The center’s clinic will allow us to ultimately serve an additional 20,000 animals annually, while the new adoption center is expected to facilitate more than 2,000 adoptions a year,” says Guinn. “The establishment of a Community Animal Center is the next critical step in LifeLine’s continued effort to make Atlanta a no-kill community.”
The nonprofit has already received over $3.2 million in pledges towards the new building and is looking to their donors and the Atlanta community to help them raise the remainder of the project's budget and make the facility a reality.
