History: Since 2002, LifeLine Animal Project has provided lifesaving solutions for animals in county shelters. They are now the largest sheltering organization for homeless animals in Atlanta.
Did you know: Every day, 40 to 60 animals enter DeKalb and Fulton county animal shelters, which are both managed by LifeLine. Since the nonprofit took over operations in 2013, adoptions at these shelters have increased by 300%. LifeLine recently opened its a new shelter, Community Animal Center, 3180 Presidential Drive, Atlanta. It offers adoptions and low-cost veterinary care.
Motto: LifeLine is working “to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable animals in metro Atlanta’s county shelters.”
How can you help: Adopt or foster a furry friend from one of LifeLine’s five shelters. Choose from nearly 1,000 cats and dogs who would love to go home with you. Or, volunteer as a dog walker, pet profile writer or help provide free pet resources at a community outreach event.
