LifeLine Animal Project

LifeLine Animal Project is an Atlanta-based non-profit organization working on collaborative solutions to end pet overpopulation and stop the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in metro Atlanta animal shelters. LAP’s focus is to promote the adoption of homeless pets and to initiate and support effective spay and neuter programs. The guiding principle behind all LAP programs is to foster cooperation between the more than 150 companion animal rescue groups, humane societies, and county animal control agencies serving greater Atlanta.

LifeLine cares for over 29,500 animals each year and has made tremendous and measurable progress at both county facilities. Lifesaving rates were only 39% in Fulton and 61% in DeKalb in 2013, now they are at 89%. Over 13,000 animals were adopted, rescued or returned to their owners from the Fulton and DeKalb shelters in 2016! LifeLine is actively on its way to making its ultimate goal a reality: transforming metro Atlanta into a no-kill community that prioritizes saving the lives of its homeless pets.
