LifeLine Animal Project, the lifesaving non-profit that manages and successfully turned around the DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services shelters, will be holding the grand opening of their Anisa Telwar Kaicker Community Animal Center, 3180 Presidential Drive in Atlanta, on October 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Festivities will include food, music, activities for all ages and raffles. Artists will also be on-site painting pictures of several shelter dogs that will be given to each dog’s new family upon adoption.

 

Named after animal lover and avid LifeLine supporter Anisa Telwar Kaicker, founder and CEO of Anisa International, the 25,000 square-foot facility features a full-service, low-cost veterinary clinic that is open to the public, and an adoption center, sponsored by the Petco Foundation, which will increase LifeLine’s adoption capacity by 2,000 animals annually.

 

The goal of the Community Animal Center is to keep more animals from being surrendered to shelters by providing affordable wellness care upfront while helping every adoptable animal that comes into LifeLine shelters find a forever home. The new 6800 square-foot clinic will provide a wide array of veterinary services, including preventive care, general surgery, spay and neuter services, dental services, x-rays and labs, all at affordable rates. LifeLine currently cares for over 40,000 animals a year at its clinics, shelters and in the community.

 

According to LifeLine Animal Project CEO Rebecca Guinn, the new facility was named after one of LifeLine’s strongest supporters, Anisa Telwar Kaicker. “Anisa has played an essential role in LifeLine’s growth and success,” says Guinn. “Not only has she supported us from the beginning but, as former board chairperson, her guidance and contributions have been invaluable. We are proud to call our new headquarters the Anisa Telwar Kaicker Community Animal Center.”

ATLANTA, GA – Warmer weather has brought an influx of animals to LifeLine Animal Project’s DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS) and Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS) shelters, and over 1300 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens in their care need loving homes.  To save lives and encourage adoptions, LifeLine is waiving adoptions fees on all animals during their “Clear the Shelter” event Saturday, August 17, through Monday, August 26!  The fee-waived adoptions include the pets’ spay/neuters, microchips and vaccinations at no additional cost!

During July, over 1800 animals came into DCAS and FCAS.  LifeLine is hopeful that the Clear the Shelter event will be as successful as their June fee-waived event, where 807 animals found homes during a 10-day period. 

Participating shelters include: DCAS, 3280 Chamblee Dunwoody Road in Chamblee, FCAS, 860 Marietta Blvd NW in Atlanta and the LifeLine Cat Adoption Center, 3172 E Ponce de Leon Ave in Scottdale. 

To view available animals for adoption or for shelter hours, please visit LifeLineAnimal.org. LifeLine’s fee-waived Clear the Shelter event is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Petco Foundation.
