Adopt a pet from LifeLine today! Don’t buy a pet; our teams can help you find that friend you’ve been dreaming of right here in Atlanta’s shelters. When you adopt a pet from LifeLine, your pet is already spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped (a $200-value!). Your adoption fee helps fund our lifesaving mission to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in Atlanta.

Please consider bringing home a dog in one of our county shelters that has the most critical need of finding a home:

Our Foster to Family program is a great opportunity to bring a pet home for a two-week trial adoption. You’ll even get support from our foster team for those two weeks. This allows you time to ensure the pet is an excellent fit for your family!


Avoid coming to the shelter and browse pets who are available for adoption and currently living in foster homes. Foster parents can provide helpful information about their foster pet to you.


Sometimes situations change and loved pets need to find new homes. You can adopt a pet directly from their current guardians, preventing them from ever spending a night in an animal shelter.


LifeLine supports our U.S. military veterans by partnering with Pets for Patriots to help them adopt a new pet for free. Every Pets for Patriots member receives a fee-waived adoption, a pet gift card, discounts on pet care and so much more.


Your donations helps us shelter and care for over 16,000 shelter animals every year.
