The Fulton County Animal Shelter is out of housing space. We’re asking our community for help with stray pets so we can focus on emergency and critical situations. Animals in need will not and should not be abandoned. If you have found a healthy pet, please fill out a Found Pet Report. If you need other assistance please email but know that the response time is delayed due to incredibly high volumes of animals and people in need of assistance.  

If you lost a pet, please visit the shelter and check the lost pet website page.

Adopt a pet in July and choose your pet’s adoption fee! Our shelters are full of incredible pets waiting for homes, and to them, your love is priceless!

Field Services

Our Fulton County Animal Services Officers are here to support pets and the people who love them in all our communities. Going well beyond traditional animal control, Animal Services Officers are available 24/7 to address animal-related issues and are working to improve the quality of life for animals and people in Fulton County.

Keeping People & Pets Together

Based in Atlanta, LifeLine Animal Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission of ending the euthanasia of healthy and treatable animals in county shelters. We are the largest animal welfare organization in Georgia. LifeLine manages the Fulton County Animal Services shelter and provides animal enforcement services for Fulton County. We look at the root causes of pet homelessness and work with our community to provide accessible pet care. Our goal is to keep people and pets together.
