We are excited to announce that Fulton County Government will be renovating the front of LifeLine’s Fulton County Animal Services shelter, tentatively starting at the end of this month.
These much-needed renovations will address the shelter's rodent problem by removing all ceilings and replacing them with an open concept to prevent any further issues. Staff and cats will be relocated to trailers.
This renovation will make the shelter a better experience for our guests, cutting down on odors and improving the overall shelter environment. Changes of this magnitude will require we find homes immediately for 50 cats and as many dogs as possible in our shelter. We currently have over 400 dogs and 72 cats and urgently need help getting animals out ASAP! Here's how you can help...
It was spring of 2018. I had just released my debut EP and life was finally slowing down after 6 months of a grueling schedule. I found myself accomplished, but still missing something. I sat in my studio apartment on a Saturday morning, in a solemn mood, thinking of how to seize the day. I decided to walk to Piedmont Park and pray while walking. Looking for guidance, I felt I heard an inner voice tell me to get a dog.
The project was born from an assignment for 78 six- and seven-year-olds in the first grade at Atlanta’s Westminster School: solve a problem using resources available to you, and imagine a plan you can make happen with help from your teachers. What emerged was an entire semester chock full of learning in the areas of earth science, design thinking, internet research, art, math, branding, marketing, packaging, money handling, customer service, and social responsibility. Oh, and saving homeless animals, too!
Take our challenge and see if you can help a shelter pup find a home and a family to ring in the new year with. We have selected 20 long-term residents from our DeKalb and Fulton County shelters who need some extra help finding their forever home. 20 lucky participants will be selected and matched to one of our fantastic pups. By marketing your pup on social media, taking them out on the town for a day, and learning all about their personality, you can help a shelter dog in need find their perfect match!

We believe in addressing the issues that cause so many pets to become homeless in the first place. Whether we’re providing 30 free spay/neuter surgeries a week to pets like Mary’s best friend Sol, offering free veterinary services and pet supplies at our Healthy Pets events or performing another low-cost spay or neuter at a LifeLine Spay & Neuter clinic, where we’ve performed 120,000 to date, our programs help prevent pet overpopulation and keep pets out of the shelters and with the families who love them!
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:
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.
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!
