Over 16,000 homeless animals (that's more than 40 a day!) enter our shelters each year. Our goal is to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable pets. 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.
