The Fulton County animal shelter will be open this Wednesday (August 23rd) but closed all day on Thursday (August 24th) due to the road closures surrounding the former president’s arrival at the Fulton County Jail located down the street from the animal shelter. To adopt or foster a dog on Thursday, please visit our Midtown shelter (981 Howell Mill Road NW) where there are over 100 dogs in need of homes this week. Thank you for your support!

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!

The Fulton County Animal Services shelter has received a positive test result for Canine Flu. The shelter will remain under quarantine through June 7th. Fulton County Animal Services Officers will continue to respond to calls for service for incoming animals, but we need the community’s help. PLEASE come adopt or foster a dog from our overflow housing shelter (LifeLine Midtown at 981 Howell Mill Road)! Learn more now by visiting our FAQ page.


Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS) is managed by LifeLine Animal Project, Georgia’s largest animal welfare organization, which has turned the formerly high-kill FCAS shelter into a lifesaving facility. Our mission is to end the shelter euthanasia of healthy and treatable animals in Atlanta.

The funding that LifeLine receives from our county contract covers basic care of animals during the county’s mandated stray-hold periods, which is 3-5 days. Most of our lifesaving efforts, including emergency vet care for shelter pets, efforts to help people keep their pets, programs for animals with special needs and more, are paid for by grants and donations from our generous supporters. You can help by donating today!  

LifeLine Animal Project is a registered 501(c)(3) and donations to LifeLine are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.
