Thank you for your interest in volunteering with LifeLine Animal Project. We cared for more than 29,000 animals last year, and we could not have done it without the help of our dedicated volunteers.

When LifeLine opened its doors in 2002, a handful of passionate volunteers worked alongside staff to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in metro Atlanta shelters. Today, over 2,400 volunteers have committed to help LifeLine transform Atlanta into a no-kill community by 2016.

It only takes a little time to make a big difference! You can walk dogs and aid in socializing those who need it, spend time with the residents of our Kitty Motels, participate in offsite adoption, fundraising, and community events, or help out in the LifeLine Spay & Neuter Clinics. Whether you volunteer once a month or once a week, your involvement will help LifeLine expand community outreach programs, raise critical dollars to fund our mission and provide high quality care to the animals in our shelters.

LifeLiners are on a mission to save the world one animal at a time.
