We are in utter dismay that one of our bestest doggos, Oats, has been in our care for almost two years! Oats came to us as a cruelty case. Prior to LifeLine, Oats endured more than any dog ever should. But through it all, he has never stopped smiling. He has never given up hope that one day his forever family will walk through our shelter doors.
This November 27th, we are asking our community to show your love for Atlanta's animals this Georgia Gives Day on #GivingTuesday! Our goal is to raise $50,000 for the 50 homeless animals that come through our shelter doors every single day. Here's how you can help:
Thanks to a generous, secret donor, we waived adoption fees at our Fulton County Animal Services location! 117 homeless animals found their forever families in just two days and we couldn't be more excited! Thank you to the anonymous donor, our volunteers, our staff and our adopters for coming out to support Atlanta's homeless animals. Check out a few of our favorite photos below!
Our wonderful volunteers got together last week and put on a Washtoberfest for our Avondale pups! Our pups enjoyed the extra attention, love and they even had fun during bathtime! Check out a few of our favorite photos below.
Three and a half years ago, LifeLine purchased a building and took the first steps towards our dream of opening a Community Animal Center in Atlanta. Through management of the county shelters and hard work in the communities, LifeLine was unable to uncover many of the root causes for pet homelessness. We began to bridge the deficits in the systems and city with programs to support animals and the humans who love them. LifeLine’s Community Animal Center will expand that support even further by offering not only an adoption center, but also a full service, low-cost veterinary clinic.
LifeLine Animal Project employees are dedicated to saving lives. Whether you’re fostering animals in your home, helping families find their perfect companion, or working hard to get all of the kennels cleaned, you are committed to the animals. So we thought you’d be interested in getting to know other employees who share your passion, but who may be located at different locations, through monthly employee spotlights. Our first spotlight is a Q and A with DCAS Rescue Coordinator Katie Corbett, who is a great example of dedication and passion in action.
To some, Chauncey is just an old, beat up shelter dog. But to us, he's pretty much perfect. Chauncey came to us a few months ago and we knew immediately that there was something special about him. He was gentle and docile and great with everyone he met. We knew that no matter what, we had to find him the perfect forever home.
August was a great month for Atlanta's homeless animals! We held a Cinderella Ball at our Cat Adoption Center, which resulted in over 20 cat and kitten adoptions. We hosted a #ClearTheShelters adoption event, where 147 homeless animals found their happily-ever-after. And we celebrated National Dog Day at Sweetwater Brewery with our adopters, fosters and supporters!
