Making Atlanta No-Kill Together: Are You In?
LifeLine Animal Project has cut the euthanasia rate in more than half in metro Atlanta. Getting to no-kill is one thing. Staying there will take us all.


Are You In? Take the Pledge!Since 2002, LifeLine Animal Project's mission has always been to end the needless euthanasia of adoptable dogs and cats in Atlanta's shelters. LifeLine opened our own shelter, then two spay/neuter clinics, and created many outreach programs to help pets at risk, but even with thousands of pets helped, Atlanta was still struggling with incredibly low save-rates in its county shelters.

"Why," we asked ourselves, "if it has worked in other large cities, has Atlanta not done a better job of lowering euthanasia?"

After a long hard look at our community, we felt that the real answer was no one was leading the charge. No one had stepped up to do the hard work to overhaul our public shelters and get the community behind the effort. So in 2013, we pursued and were awarded contracts to manage DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services.

Over the last three years, LifeLine has successfully raised the lifesaving rates at both shelters. In November 2015, we attained no-kill levels at our Fulton County Animal Services shelter and in 2016 hit a no-kill milestone at DeKalb as well.

Adoption promotions, rescue partnerships, surrender counseling, revamped foster programs, and so much more have gotten us here. Getting to no-kill and staying there will take us all.
