Three and a half years ago, LifeLine purchased a building and took the first steps towards our dream of opening a Community Animal Center in Atlanta. Through management of the county shelters and hard work in the communities, LifeLine was unable to uncover many of the root causes for pet homelessness. We began to bridge the deficits in the systems and city with programs to support animals and the humans who love them. LifeLine’s Community Animal Center will expand that support even further by offering not only an adoption center, but also a full service, low-cost veterinary clinic.
LifeLine Animal Project employees are dedicated to saving lives. Whether you’re fostering animals in your home, helping families find their perfect companion, or working hard to get all of the kennels cleaned, you are committed to the animals. So we thought you’d be interested in getting to know other employees who share your passion, but who may be located at different locations, through monthly employee spotlights. Our first spotlight is a Q and A with DCAS Rescue Coordinator Katie Corbett, who is a great example of dedication and passion in action.
To some, Chauncey is just an old, beat up shelter dog. But to us, he's pretty much perfect. Chauncey came to us a few months ago and we knew immediately that there was something special about him. He was gentle and docile and great with everyone he met. We knew that no matter what, we had to find him the perfect forever home.
We've put together a list of Fall essentials! Because nothing says "Fall" quite like a PSL and a Pibble!
August was a great month for Atlanta's homeless animals! We held a Cinderella Ball at our Cat Adoption Center, which resulted in over 20 cat and kitten adoptions. We hosted a #ClearTheShelters adoption event, where 147 homeless animals found their happily-ever-after. And we celebrated National Dog Day at Sweetwater Brewery with our adopters, fosters and supporters!
During August, we held a #ClearTheShelters adoption event, where we waived adoption fees for one day only! Thanks to our wonderful volunteers, staff and supporters, 147 lives were saved in just one day. Check out a few of our favorite photos below!
