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.

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.

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! 

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! 

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.
