LifeLine Animal Project, a nonprofit ending the shelter euthanasia of healthy and treatable animals, has been managing the Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS) shelter since 2013.

FCAS provides humane care for the animals at the shelter, veterinary care including spay/neuters, pet adoptions, animal reclaims, volunteer and foster opportunities and rescue group coordination. Also, we provide field enforcement services through our Animal Services Officers.

LifeLine made history at FCAS in 2019 by achieving a no-kill live release rate, where at least 90% of all pets coming into the shelter are saved. This is thanks to our fantastic community of pet lovers, adopters, fosters, volunteers and donors! However, LifeLine’s focus isn’t about achieving a specific number or percentage, it’s about saving every healthy and treatable animal and making decisions that are best for every individual pet that comes into care. 

About LifeLine Animal Project

LifeLine is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and the largest animal welfare organization in Georgia. We manage both the Fulton County and the DeKalb County animal shelters. LifeLine also provides field enforcement services for Fulton County.

We look at the root causes of animal homelessness and work with our community to provide accessible pet care. Our goal is to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable pets in Atlanta’s shelters and to keep people and pets together. If you want to add a cat or dog to your home, visit a LifeLine shelter today. From spay/neuter services to general wellness care, LifeLine also has top-notch veterinary care at affordable prices.

LifeLine has transformed the way metro Atlanta cares for animals in need, and annually, tens of thousands of animals are no longer euthanized in Atlanta area shelters.
