Finding Love at LifeLine This February

Find Love at LifeLine

During the season of love, LifeLine is creating innovative ways to prevent our shelter pets from spending Valentine's Day alone! You can help by fostering a dog during heartworm treatment, writing a love note to a shelter pet, getting showered with kisses at our doggy kissing booth, and much more. Check out the many happenings at our shelters and see how you can help share the love!


Mend a Broken Heart

(Fulton County Animal Services)

Sometimes, dogs arrive at our shelters with heartworm disease. Heartworms are parasitic worms that live inside a dog's blood vessels and restrict the ability of the heart to effectively pump blood to the rest of the body. Heartworm disease is spread through mosquito bites, and, if left untreated, results in severe lung disease, heart failure, and death. The good news? Heartworm disease is treatable! LifeLine provides FREE heartworm treatment to all dogs fostered and adopted from our shelters.

There are 75 dogs at our Fulton County Animal Shelter who currently have heartworms. The shelter is too stressful for them to safely undergo treatment, and we need your help so these pups can recover. Mend a broken heart by fostering one of our heartworm positive dogs in your home. We need our community to open their homes for two months, so that the dogs receiving treatment have a quiet place to recover. Only a two-month commitment can save a life.

Heartworms are not contagious to people or other animals and LifeLine covers the cost of the treatment, and can provide food and additional supplies. Sign up to become a foster parent today!

Pucker Up For Slobbery Smooches!

(DeKalb County Animal Services)

Our shelter dogs are ready to pucker up and show you some love! Stop by the shelter and visit our kissing booth where our DeKalb County Animal Services long-timers are ready to plant a wet one on ya. "Long-timers" are dogs that have been in our care for over a year and with so many dogs at our shelter, it is easy for these dogs to get overlooked. We know that they are fabulous and they are ready to prove that to you! Adoption fees for long-timers at DeKalb County Animal Services are now waived for the month of February. Come visit us and ask to meet a shelter sweetheart!



Write a Love Note to Shelter Pets

Who doesn't love a good love note? One of our lucky shelter dogs, DJ, received a heart-warming Valentine's Day card from his secret admirer, Patrick. You too can make a shelter dog's day with a lovely card. Visit us and write a Valentine's Day card to a shelter pet needing love!


Share the Love of Your #ShelterValentine

Did you already find love by adopting from LifeLine Animal Project? Well, Petco Foundation is providing a chance to win a prize pack for you and a lifesaving grant award of up to $10,000 for us!
