INTERVIEW: Free pet adoptions during February at Lifeline Midtown
ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - The Lifeline Animal Project, the organization that manages the Fulton and Dekalb County shelters is celebrating 21 years of saving animals’ lives.
During the month of February, adoption fees are being waived which will include spay and neuter surgery, microchip, and vaccines.
The DeKalb County Animal Services shelter was built in 2017 to house approximately 450 dogs at full capacity., according to its website.
According to a news release, largely due to economic and housing factors, pet adoptions are down 31% over this time last year.
DeKalb’s shelter no longer has room to humanely house dogs, nor space for incoming pets in need.
