LifeLine Animal Project isn’t your average animal welfare organization. We take a holistic approach to improving the standard of care for animals in Atlanta through management of the county shelters, adoption programs, spay and neuter clinics and community outreach efforts.
Since taking over management of DeKalb County Animal Services and Fulton County Animal Services in 2013, thousands of lives have been saved and adoptions have been increased by 150%!
Over 16,000 homeless animals enter our shelters each year. Our goal is that all healthy and treatable pets leave our shelters alive and find loving homes. It is a huge, continual effort to find homes for thousands of pets. Are you IN?
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.
Hosting fee-waived adoption events is one way that LifeLine is able to create a buzz of excitement, bring more people into our shelters and find more animals loving homes. We sometimes receive questions regarding the quality of adoptions at these events. However, according to numerous studies, along with our own experience, fee-waived promotions increase adoptions without compromising the quality of care that the animals receive.
LifeLine purchased a building and took the first steps towards our dream of opening a Community Animal Center in Atlanta. Through management of the county shelters and hard work in the communities, LifeLine was able to uncover many of the root causes for pet homelessness. We began to bridge the deficits in the systems and city with programs to support animals and the humans who love them. LifeLine’s Community Animal Center will expand that support even further by offering not only an adoption center, but also a full service, low-cost veterinary clinic.
We all enjoy spending the warmer months exploring the outdoors with our favorite furry companions. But with temperatures rising very quickly, be sure not to put your pet in harms way. Check out some heat safety tips for keeping your pets cool and safe during the hot summer months.
