Lifeline Animal Project Celebrates National Dog Day with Free Dog Adoptions!
PAWmazing News! DOG
ADOPTION FEES WAIVED ALL DAY ON AUGUST 26, 2015
GA – (August 25, 2015) – LifeLine Animal Project, the
nonprofit which recently pledged to have its county shelters reach
no-kill levels by the end of 2016, invites everyone to celebrate
National Dog Day with free adoptions! Adopt a dog on August 26
at any of LifeLine’s shelters, including DeKalb County Animal
Services, Fulton County Animal Services or LifeLine’s Dog House,
and the adoption fee will be waived! Standard screening
criteria still applies to ensure the dogs go to good homes.
to LifeLine Animal Project CEO Rebecca Guinn, National Dog Day is a
great time to adopt a dog, because shelters typically have the
highest intake of dogs during the summer. “With 30 to 40
animals entering the shelter daily, we need public support to help us
save lives,” says Rebecca. “By waiving adoption fees on
National Dog Day we hope to see a record number of people coming into
the shelter and giving our wonderful animals a new life.”
in 2002, LifeLine Animal Project is Atlanta’s leading nonprofit
organization providing lifesaving solutions to end the killing of
healthy and treatable animals in county shelters, promote animal
welfare and prevent pet overpopulation. As the managing organization
for DeKalb County Animal Services and Fulton County Animal Services,
LifeLine has dramatically increased adoption rates and decreased
euthanasia rates by more than half at both county facilities.
The organization also operates two low-cost spay/neuter clinics,
which have performed 85,000 surgeries to date, its own no-kill cat
shelter and a rehabilitative, no-kill shelter for dogs and cats.
Other outreach efforts include its Catlanta trap-neuter-return
program, the first and largest in metro Atlanta, for stray and feral
cats. For more information, please
