LifeLine Animal Project isn’t your average animal welfare organization. We take a holistic approach to improving the standard of care for animals in Atlanta through our management of the county shelters, adoption programs, spay and neuter clinics and community outreach efforts.
Since taking over management of FCAS and DCAS in 2013, thousands of lives have been saved and adoptions have been increased by 150%!
Over 15,000 homeless animals (that's more than 40 a day!) enter our shelters each year. Our goal is that all healthy and treatable pets leave our shelters alive and find loving homes. It is a huge, continual effort to find homes for thousands of pets. How do we do it? Read more about how we’re transforming Atlanta into a no-kill community here.
Licensing your pet helps insure that Animal Control Officers contact you if your pet becomes lost. Additionally, your pet's license fee helps all lost pets receive shelter and medical care while waiting to be reunited with their owners.
LifeLine works incredibly hard to improve the lives of animals in our communities. Thanks to efforts from members of the LifeLine organization, Fulton County has updated their Animal Ordinances. Important changes have been made, like more clearly defining animal cruelty and neglect. The new ordinances also give judges the ability to provide stiffer penalties in cases of animal abuse. You can view a complete rundown of the Fulton County Animal Ordinances here.
Spaying or neutering is one of the greatest gifts you can provide your pet, your family, and your community. These routine medical procedures not only help control pet overpopulation, but they may also prevent medical and behavioral problems from developing, allowing your pet to lead a longer, healthier and happier life.
Fulton County Animal Control Officers enforce County animal ordinances and fight animal cruelty. Animal Control Officers are available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergencies.
