One of the greatest measures of success as an animal rescuer is to find out that an animal that you helped save is happy and thriving in its forever home. It reminds us why we do what we do every day in our efforts of saving the lives of our innocent four-legged fur babies.
This week’s metro Atlanta adoption success story is about Daisy from DeKalb County Animal Services. Here is Daisy’s “happily ever after” story posted on the LifeLine Animal Project Facebook page:
We received a wonderful update from sweet Daisy who was adopted from LifeLine’s Dekalb County Animal Services shelter in August of 2013! Her adopter went in with the intent to adopt a Pittie and after some browsing was introduced to Daisy by one of our staff members. It has been two years since her adoption and Daisy has proved to be a wonderful pup! ‘Daisy is a true ambassador for her breed. She is incredibly smart, loving, loyal, dedicated, athletic, hilarious, and resilient. I grew up with a pitbull and am delighted for my children to have that experience.’
After adopting Daisy, her mom also started volunteering and fostering for local rescues and LifeLine Animal Project. ‘I get to help save lives, and my children learn about compassion; plus, they tell everyone they meet about how great it is to be a foster.’

About LifeLine Animal Project (from a July 1, 2015 Press Release)
Founded in 2002, LifeLine Animal Project is a nonprofit organization providing lifesaving solutions to end the killing of healthy and treatable animals in county shelters, promote animal welfare and prevent pet overpopulation in metro Atlanta. 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 shelters. The organization also operates two low-cost spay/neuter clinics, which have performed 80,000 surgeries to date, and its own rehabilitative, no-kill shelter. Other outreach efforts include its Catlanta trap-neuter-return program, the first and largest in metro Atlanta, for stray and feral cats.
