Every dollar raised helps us care for 39,000 animals each year in our shelters, clinics and communities. Every donation, no matter the amount, helps provide care for more animals in our shelters, as well as supports our community programs that help keep pets out of the shelters and with the families who love them!

Donations to LifeLine Animal Project are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

We are moving to the new LifeLine Community Animal Center soon and our Avondale Estates shelter will be closing. The majority of the animals at the shelter have found homes, but there are five wonderful dogs who are still waiting for their special someone. They would love to find a foster or forever home before the big move to the Community Animal Center! Check out the Fantastic Five below.

Running dog

 

Peachy’s Virtual Run/Walk 15k for Lifeline Animal Project will help keep you moving all summer long!

Big Peach Running Co. (BPRC) is celebrating its 15th Anniversary with a Run/Walk 15k with proceeds benefiting LifeLine Animal Project! On July 28th, BPRC is hosting three separately scheduled 5K runs (3:00pm, 4:00pm, and 5:00pm) at the Westside Beltline Trail. After the run, enjoy some downtime at Wild Heaven Brewery during Peachy's Pedestrian-Active Party.

As LifeLine works hard to make Atlanta a no-kill city, we consistently ask for the community’s support. Why do we need ongoing community support to achieve no-kill levels (defined as saving 90% or more of the animals in our care) when other shelters might not? To understand this, you need to understand the difference between the two basic types of animal shelters.

Virginia Tech is partnering with Fulton County Animal Services to conduct a study on cortisone levels of shelter pets after spending time outside of the shelter. You can participate in this very special study! Learn more about what this program entails and how to sign up.

The challenge of saving lives and making Atlanta a no-kill community belongs to all of us. And when we all work together, the animals win. Let’s make Atlanta a no-kill, lifesaving city. Are you in?

July 2019 

 

July Lifesaving Rates

 

In July, more animals entered our shelters than any other month this year. Even with this incredibly high intake, 1,448 animals were saved thanks to our community of adopters, fosters, rescue groups, donors, and supporters. In July, we waived adoption fees for all cats and kittens to help them find loving homes, our rescue partners saved some of our toughest medical cases, two cats from a hoarding case were finally able to relax in a foster home, and so much more. Our DeKalb County shelter had a 90% lifesaving rate and our Fulton County Shelter had an 85% lifesaving rate in July. As intake continues to rise this summer, we need your help to save every healthy and treatable animal that enter our shelter doors. Here are a few ways you can help Atlanta's animals: 

Foster a dog: Whether you can foster for two weeks or two months, any amount of time can help save lives. 

Adopt a pet: There are so many animals looking for loving homes at our shelters. If you've been thinking about adopting, now is the time!

Donate: Every donation, no matter the amount, helps provide care for more animals in our shelters, as well as supports our community programs that help keep pets out of the shelters and with the families who love them.

 

June 2019 

 

June Lifesaving Rates 2

 

During June, we again experienced the highest intake of 2019. On average, 60 animals entered our DeKalb and Fulton Animal Shelters each day, but thanks to support from our community, our DeKalb County shelter had a 91% lifesaving rate and our Fulton County Shelter had a 93% lifesaving rate!  In the middle of June, our shelters were incredibly full, and to save as many lives as possible, we hosted a Lifesaving Event. During this event, 807 animals found loving homes! There is still more work to be done as intake continues to increase this summer. We need your help to save every healthy and treatable animal that enter our shelter doors. Here are a few ways you can help Atlanta's animals: 

Adopt a cat: It's the Cat Days of Summer! Throughout July, you can adopt any cat or kitten for free at all LifeLine locations. 

Meet the Fantastic Five: We will be moving to the new LifeLine Community Animal Center soon, which means our shelter in Avondale Estates will be closing. There are five wonderful dogs at our Avondale Shelter who would love to find homes before the big move. 

Donate: Every donation, no matter the amount, helps provide care for more animals in our shelters, as well as supports our community programs that help keep pets out of the shelters and with the families who love them.

 

May 2019

 

May Lifesaving Rates 2

 

During May, we experienced the highest intake of 2019 so far. On average, 50 animals entered our county shelters each day of the month. Thanks to support from our community, our DeKalb County shelter had a 95% lifesaving rate and our Fulton County shelter had a 90% lifesaving rate! As intake continues to increase this summer, there is still work to be done here in Atlanta. We need your help to save every healthy and treatable animal that comes through our shelter doors. Here are ways you can support Atlanta’s homeless animals today:

Foster a dog: From fun-loving hiking buddies to low-key besties, we are sure to have a pet to fit your lifestyle.

Adopt a new best friend: Whether you're looking for a laid back senior dog, a playful kitten, or just a loyal companion, your new best friend is waiting for you at a LifeLine shelter. 

Become a monthly donor: Monthly giving is the easiest way to support our lifesaving mission to end the euthanasia of every healthy and treatable animal that comes through our shelter doors. When you become a Faithful Companion, you make it possible for us to care for Atlanta's homeless animals.
