Pet Heat Safety

 

Intense heat can cause the same problems for pets as it does for humans including overheating, dehydration, sunburn, and heatstroke. Dogs are not able to cool themselves down easily. Check out some heat safety tips for keeping your pets cool and safe during the hot summer months.

 

 

We were so honored to team up with the men and women of Decatur Firestation #1 as we turned up the heat for shelter pets! Meet some of our local heroes as they flexed their muscles to help raise money for Atlanta's animals. Check out some more photos and behind-the-scenes footage of our fun photoshoot!

Donovan and Tinkerbell

To save lives, we rely on some of our most valuable volunteers – those that foster pets in their homes to get them out of the shelters until a forever home can be found. As we continue to ask our supporters why they are "in,” one of our loyal volunteers, Donovan, offered to talk to us about why he fosters LifeLine shelter dogs.

Donnica Smalls

Donni began volunteering with LifeLine last year and has made a remarkable impact on Atlanta's animals! From volunteering at our ATL Puppy Bowl to creating flyers to help our adoptable pups stand out, Donni is always ready to lend a helping hand. Read more about Donni below! 

Karin and Steve 1

The cats at our Cat Adoption Center on Ponce love Karin and Steve's weekly visits. They shower our cats with lots of love and affection, which helps them relax in their temporary home. They've even made friends with some of our shyest kitties! We're so glad to have Karin and Steve on our volunteer team! 

When Tequila came into our Fulton County Animal Services location, she was in terrible condition, very underweight, with several stab wounds. Our on-site clinic team tended to her wounds, took her on walks outside of the shelter, and showered her with love and affection.
