LIFELINE ANIMAL PROJECT RECEIVES $35,000 GRANT FROM PETSMART CHARITIES TO HELP MORE ADOPTABLE PETS FIND FAMILIES IN METRO ATLANTA

More than 260 pets find homes during National Adoption Week

ATLANTA, Ga – LifeLine Animal Project is happy to announce that 264 dogs and cats from the Dekalb and Fulton county animal shelters found homes in March, thanks to an ongoing partnership with PetSmart Charities.

LifeLine Animal Project received a $35,000 grant from PetSmart Charities® to help prepare more pets in Fulton and Dekalb counties for adoption. Some four million pets find themselves in U.S. shelters each year. In partnership with PetSmart Charities, LifeLine brought adoptable pets to Metro Atlanta PetSmart locations in support of National Adoption Week, taking place March 18 – 24, 2024.

“This grant allows LifeLine to keep people and pets together where they belong,” says LifeLine’s spokesperson Tiki Artist. “PetSmart is an invaluable partner in our lifesaving efforts”

“Shelters across the U.S. are struggling to keep pace with the number of animals coming in and need support from their communities to bring pets and people together,” said Heidi Marston, director of pet placement at PetSmart Charities. “We’re proud to support LifeLine Animal Project and the essential work they do to care and advocate for the animals that come through their door in need of loving families. Please consider supporting their lifesaving work through volunteering, fostering, adopting, or by making a donation.”

PetSmart Charities National Adoption Week is a special time during the year. PetSmart stores feature adoptable pets to meet and cuddle in spacious areas, and staff and volunteers are on-hand to make introductions and answer questions. Potential pet parents can also learn about the products and services they’ll need for the best possible start with their new family members.
