LifeLine's DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS) provides care for homeless animals, pet adoption services and enforcement of the animal control laws in DeKalb County, Georgia. If you are looking to adopt a dog, cat, puppy or kitten in the Atlanta area, please visit our shelter to see our wonderful pets for adoption!
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.
During our May adoption special, dogs over 25lbs and all cats may be adopted for $20! Note: All standard adoption criteria applies.
Thinking of adding a pet to your family? LifeLine's Fulton County Animal Services shelter has many happy, healthy animals just waiting for someone to take them home. All of our pets are fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and microchipped. Check out some of our available pets and find your next best friend.
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.
Use your time and talent to make a better life for homeless pets! Volunteer opportunities abound at Fulton County Animal Services. Whatever amount of time you can give, the animals always benefit from your help.
Fulton County Animal Control Officers enforce County animal ordinances and fight animal cruelty. Animal Control Officers are available Monday-Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 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.
