LifeLine Animal Project isn’t your average animal welfare organization. We take a holistic approach to improving the standard of care for animals in Atlanta through management of the county shelters, adoption programs, spay and neuter clinics and community outreach efforts.
Since taking over management of DeKalb County Animal Services and Fulton County Animal Services in 2013, thousands of lives have been saved and adoptions have been increased by 150%!
Over 16,000 homeless animals enter our shelters each year. Our goal is that all healthy and treatable pets leave our shelters alive and find loving homes. It is a huge, continual effort to find homes for thousands of pets. Are you IN?
On September 30, 2018, The Young Workers Committee (YWC) of the Film and Television Union IATSE Local 479 here in Atlanta, Georgia will be hosting the 4th Annual Charity Kickball Tournament, benefitting LifeLine Animal Project. This is a one-day tournament where 16 teams, comprised of cast and crew from the various television and feature film productions in the area, square off against each other in a world cup style tournament.
Spring and summer months are our highest intake months of the year! Our county shelters receive an average of 40-60 animals per day, especially mamas and their puppies and orphaned kittens! And while we are so happy they found us, we need your help keeping them safe from illness. Here are five ways you can help during puppy and kitten season:
Did you know that community cats (or feral cats) are an intergal part of humane animal welfare? affective community cat programs include a TNR (trap-neuter-return) program, which aims to trap the cat(s), spay/neuter them and then return them to the same location. Such programs provide life-saving options for cats who might otherwise be euthanized. Additionally, overtime they reduce the population of community cat colonies. Below are some frequently asked questions + how you can help Atlanta become a lifesaving community!
Hi friends! Otter here -
I’m going on week 12 of life, and just wanted to tell you about all the cool things that have been happening so far!
In case you haven’t yet heard, I was born in the shelter. The shelter was nice and the people were friendly, but it was no place for a puppy. So me, my 8 siblings and my mom got to go stay with a foster in their home until we were old enough to be adopted. She took such good care of us but alas, it was time for us all to go our separate ways.
LifeLine's Pets for Life program is celebrating its 10,000th spay and neuter! This is an incredible milestone for the program and for LifeLine.
Benjamin Button came into our care after being thrown out of a car in DeKalb County. Check out this sweet boy and his amazing recovery!
