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!

Invitation To Foster

We invite you to become an important link in a caring chain of events that saves the lives of homeless pets. Fostering a shelter pet for a short, medium or longer-term period is an enormous help to us and it makes you our partner in a no-kill Atlanta.

You will be part of preparing pets for a huge, happy day in their lives: Adoption Day!

What You Do

Dogs and cats in shelters benefit greatly from spending some time in your home environment. Share your space with a shelter pet for a while and watch the transformation. It’s amazing!

Some dogs or cats have special needs or diets, others may be too young to live well in a busy shelter when their immune system hasn’t fully matured, some simply need extra socialization. There are occasionally pets who have never been indoors before (watching them discover the “comforts of home” is a priceless experience).

Shelter pets thrive on the love you show and the attention you give them.

Fostering Homeless Dogs and Cats

The kind hearts and hands who help with feeding and caring for bottle baby kittens when “kitten season” (March – August) comes around every year are special angels. You can be one too if you like!

What We Do

LifeLine provides all veterinary care, food and supplies. We will discuss your foster needs in advance and answer all questions. We care for thousands of dogs and cats, puppies and kittens every single year. Be part of the success story!
