Thank you for your interest in volunteering with LifeLine Animal Project. We cared for more than 15,000 homeless cats and dogs 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. Please fill out our volunteer application and join our incredible team of volunteers and start changing lives today!

Volunteer For LifeLine Animal Project


LifeLine Animal Project strives to provide our feline and canine friends the best possible environment until the they can be placed in loving, forever homes. The residents of our Kitty Motels enjoy a cage-free temporary home with plenty of climbing areas for adventurous cats and hiding places for shy kitties. LifeLine's Dog House is a safe, fun, and loving environment where dogs have plenty of outdoor group playtime as well as individual care.

However, we have cats and dogs that would benefit from a foster home environment. Some have special needs or diet concerns, while others may just need some extra socialization. With kitten season in full force, foster homes with bottlebaby experience are critical. LifeLine provides all veterinary care, food, and supplies as needed for animals in foster homes. The cats and dogs just ask for your love and attention in return. Some will only need short-term care while others may need a longer period.

If you are interested in fostering one of our wonderful cats or dogs, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Volunteer Spotlight: Bogna

Volunteer Spotlight: Bogna Grabicka

​​​We would like to dedicate our volunteer spotlight to Bogna Grabicka. Though she has only volunteered with us for a year, her dedication has made a huge impact on the quality of life of our shelter pets. On any given day, you’ll find Bogna collecting newspaper donations, staffing off-site adoption events or providing foster care to one of our pups in need.  Not only does she foster our shelter animals, she adopts them too! She currently has a pup named Laylah, who she adopted from the Fulton County shelter in 2012.

Bogna continuously goes above and beyond the call of duty, and even uses her savvy technical skills to create videos to help find forever homes for urgent pups. Bogna is much more than a valued volunteer, she is a member of our shelter family, and we look forward to working with her for years to come!

All of our volunteers are simply amazing, and we thank you for your involvement with LifeLine Animal Project.
