Barbells For Bullies and GORUCK team up for RUCK YOUR BALLS OFF to build awareness and fight shelter overpopulation! By promoting responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter initiatives, we can help control the amount of animals entering shelters and mitigate the staggering number of dogs and cats put down every year. All fundraisers created in the southeast will benefit LifeLine Animal Project! Learn more about this awesome opportunity to get outside, get in shape, and support critical spay/neuter initiatives.



Hosting fee-waived adoption events is one way that LifeLine is able to create a buzz of excitement, bring more people into our shelters and find more animals loving homes. We sometimes receive questions regarding the quality of adoptions at these events. However, according to numerous studies, along with our own experience, fee-waived promotions increase adoptions without compromising the quality of care that the animals receive.

Pet Heat Safety


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.


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.


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!

Saving the lives of every healthy and treatable pet who comes into our care is a commitment in which every employee at LifeLine Animal Project believes. Belinda Bell, Director of Animal Care at Fulton County Animal Services, is so inspired by LifeLine’s dedication to saving lives that she drives 180 miles, round trip, to work at our Fulton shelter. Although she prefers to work quietly in the background, Belinda agreed to share why she makes this personal sacrifice to be part of the LifeLine team.
