Animal Care

 

General Pet Care

We understand how much pets are a loving part of our families! Check out our basic pet care tips for taking care of cats and dogs. PetMD.com is also a great site that contains general pet care information and articles.

Behavior Training

More information on Animal Care

We are excited to share with you our partnership with Frogs to Dogs, a positive reinforcement dog training organization in the Atlanta area. LifeLine Animal Project adopters receive a 20% discount, which can be used towards their adopted dog's private training and/or classes. Learn more here!

Crate Training

The primary use for a crate is housetraining, as the crate can limit the dog's access to the rest of the house while they learn other rules. Crates are also a safe way to transport your dog in the car. Read our guide on How to Crate Train Your Dog.

Heat Safety

Rising temperatures can mean trouble for your pets. Check out some pet heat safety tips to make the summer months as enjoyable as possible.

Cold Weather Tips

Although pets have fur coats, their fur does not provide much warmth and they still get cold during winter months. Pets left outside in extreme temperatures are at risk for hypothermia, frostbite and death. Check out these Cold Weather Tips to keep your pets safe during the cold months.

Heartworms

Heartworms are a potentially fatal parasite that infect dogs through moquitos. Learn the Facts About Heartworms and better protect your pet.

Integrating Your Pets & Family Members

We understand that family changes, like having a new baby, can be overwhelming. We believe that pets can teach children empathy and compassion, as well as lower kids’ stress levels. Many studies show that children who live with pets exercise more, have higher self-esteem, and have fewer respiratory infections than their pet-free peers.

  • Most pets, children, and spouses require an adjustment period that varies with every situation and can take several weeks or months.
  • If necessary, keep the pet separated until he feels more comfortable in your home.
  • LifeLine offers tips on introducing a new dog to your pack.
  • The ASPCA has information on preparing your dog for a new baby and other topics relating to pets and babies.
  • Dr. Sophia Yin offers free downloadable flyers on understanding dogs’ body language, teaching kids and adults how to approach dogs, and dealing with fearful dogs.

 

Dealing With Allergies

  • See an allergist to determine if you have specific pet allergies.
  • Children may outgrow pet allergies, and many others successfully manage their symptoms and keep their pet in their home. Children with pets are less likely to develop pet allergies.
  • Create a pet-free area in your home to go to when symptoms act up. Vacuum and clean floors and furniture on a weekly basis.
  • Place a high efficiency particulate air purifier (HEPA) in the home.
  • Wash hands, pets, clothing, and bedding materials frequently, including the pet’s bed.

 

Finding a New Home For Your Pet

We understand that sometimes even after careful consideration of options, people may no longer be able to care for their pets. Instead of bringing your pet to an animal shelter, there are many steps that you can take to find a new home for your pet while the pet is still in your care. As the pet's owner, you know them the best! And it will be much easier for you to identify and screen potential adopters for the best home. Check out our tips on how to find a new home for your pet.
