Our Dog for the Day program is a great way for our shelter pups to get out of the shelter for the day and decompress! It's such a fun opportunity, not only for our volunteers, but for our dogs as well! Read what our volunteers had to say about their pup + their day out!

Jerry Lee

When Snow came into our Fulton County Animal Services location, he was covered in demodex mange. He felt horrible and wasn't recovering quickly in the shelter environment.

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. 

Safer Atlanta 5

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.
