Lifeline Animal Project
“Founded in 2002, LifeLine Animal Project (LifeLine) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia. LifeLine is working to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in metro Atlanta shelters and is the managing organization of Fulton County Animal Services and the DeKalb County Animal Services shelter.
From the very beginning, LifeLine has worked to assess the needs of Atlanta’s animal welfare community and provide innovative, strategic resources in support of its mission to end shelter euthanasia of homeless animals. Rather than reinforce traditional models of animal control and sheltering, which historically have not served the animals well, LifeLine has focused on community-driven approaches to neighborhood reinvestment and public safety through programs designed to increase both human and animal welfare.”

At our very first meeting, the kids got to choose their focus for the season. With tons of animal lovers in the group, Lifeline was the obvious choice.
We are focusing our efforts on not only the animals in the shelter but also those who take care of them, the staff who spend their days taking care of them.
The kids will be learning things about how to interact with animals, resources to help animals in their communities as well as making treats and gifts.
Through fundraising efforts, the kids will raise funds, food and pet items to allow extras for the pets and help continue to put food in their bellies.
