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.
“I have worked in this field since the early 90’s, and I clearly remember 30 years ago that euthanizing homeless pets was an everyday occurrence. Shelters didn’t really look for ways to save animals. When the shelters got full, animals would be selected to die based on how long they had been in the shelter. Animals who were sick, injured, or just old were often killed right away. It was a horrible, horrible time.”
"I have been repeatedly awestruck at how well the staff works together, going the extra mile to save lives. It is truly amazing! Knowing how much LifeLine genuinely cares is why I’m in!”
LifeLine Animal Project simply could not be the safety net for Atlanta’s homeless pets without the generosity and dedication of our loyal supporters and staff. It has been a hard-fought battle to get away from the euthanasia practices that Belinda described. With your help, we will continue to keep Atlanta a lifesaving community!
