Spring is almost here! And as we begin to move into the spring and summer months, our Atlanta shelters experience the highest intake of the year! With an average intake of 50 animals per day, it's more important than ever to be #In4LifeLine. We've put together 7 ways you can give back to Atlanta's animals this Spring:
Lap dogs come in all shapes and sizes! From cuddly cats to 70-pound pitties, we have some of the best lap dogs around! Don't judge them by how they appear - all of these pets are lap dogs at heart!
Our LifeLine county shelters get an average of 40 - 60 animals per day. From owner surrenders to cruelty cases to strays off the streets, we take care of more animals than any other animal welfare organization in Georgia.
Their heads may be big, but their hearts are even bigger! Here are our blocky-headed favorites this week:
It's no secret that larger, metropolitan cities in the United States are faced with a roaming dog problem, including many of our neighborhoods in Atlanta. Some of these dogs are strays and some are owned, but all have one thing in common: they are usually uncared for, unsocialized and they sometimes pose a threat to public safety.
We are so proud to be Atlantans. And when we watched our Atlanta Falcons clinch the NFC Championship, we knew we had to celebrate! On Super Bowl Sunday, adoption fees for dogs over 25lbs and all cats will be waived at all four of our shelter locations. It's time to RISE UP, Atlanta!
Sometimes you just want to remind one of your favorite dogs that there's more to life than the shelter. Magnum had a great time at a local park with two of our volunteers on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. He was a gentleman and soaked up all the love given to him on his special outing.
When your greatest passion is making a meaningful difference in the lives of animals, few jobs are more rewarding and challenging than those at county animal shelters. LifeLine employees’ diverse talents and varied backgrounds enhance their ability to make that meaningful difference every day. Such is the case with LifeLine’s Fulton County Animal Services Officer Dena Gardner.
