LifeLine Animal Project isn’t your average animal welfare organization. We take a holistic approach to improving the standard of care for animals in Atlanta through management of the county shelters, adoption programs, spay and neuter clinics and community outreach efforts.
Since taking over management of DeKalb County Animal Services and Fulton County Animal Services in 2013, thousands of lives have been saved and adoptions have been increased by 150%!
Over 16,000 homeless animals enter our shelters each year. Our goal is that all healthy and treatable pets leave our shelters alive and find loving homes. It is a huge, continual effort to find homes for thousands of pets. Are you IN?
For some, adopting a pet from an animal shelter can feel like a game of chance. You may not know "what you are getting." Will my new dog get along with other dogs? Will my new dog get along with my kids? Will my new dog chew up my furniture or pee in the house? To eliminate the perceived unknowns related to adopting a shelter pet, we bring you SHOWCASE SATURDAY on Saturday, October 19th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the LifeLine Community Animal Center.
You can honor a cherished pet in your life with a plaque on the tribute wall at our new Community Animal Center! Your donation will celebrate your pet while contributing to the care and safety of the pets in our community. This new center will offer affordable veterinary care, encourage more adoptions and save lives by freeing up space at the Fulton and DeKalb County animal shelters.
Free vaccine clinics are one of LifeLine's ways to effectively reach under-resourced communities. Our goals are to provide low cost or free spay/neuter services and to increase access to pet-care education, veterinary resources, and related services. The communities we target typically lack information, resources, and services for companion animal health and welfare. The trust and goodwill generated by events like these go beyond the events themselves and set the stage for future opportunities to engage, spread awareness, and reach people and pets. A properly-targeted and advertised free vaccine clinic can significantly reduce animal suffering and cruelty, prevent shelter overpopulation, and promote veterinary care.
We all enjoy spending the warmer months exploring the outdoors with our favorite furry companions. But with temperatures rising very quickly, be sure not to put your pet in harms way. Check out some heat safety tips for keeping your pets cool and safe during the hot summer months.
