LifeLine Animal Project has launched a fundraising campaign to build a 25,000-square-foot facility in Atlanta.
The rescue organization has already raised $3.2 million for the community animal center, which will include adoption and veterinary facilities. The adoption portion of the building will be capable of increasing the organization’s adoption capacity by 2,000 animals each year.
There will be designated nursing rooms for bottle-feeding puppies and kittens, and overflow areas for peak seasons. There is typically a large influx in puppies and kittens in the summer, when dogs and cats give birth to litters at high rates.
New pet parents will be able to get comfortable with their new furry friends in dedicated pre-adoption bonding rooms. There will be five outdoor dog play areas, as well as space to build a dog park in the future.
The facility at 3180 President Drive in Atlanta will have veterinary facilities available to the general public. There will be four exam rooms, two surgical suites, two surgical prep and treatment rooms and surgery recovery kennels. The veterinary facilities and adoption services combined will serve more than 20,000 animals per year.
