Throughout the month of June LifeLine Animal Project is sponsoring a “Beat the Heat” adoption promotion at all three shelters – DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS), Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS) and the LifeLine Animal Project shelter. All pets six months of age or older will have their adoption fee waived and can go home with you for free. Dogs weighing less than 25 pounds do not qualify for this special. All animals will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped (a $250 total value). Regular screening criteria apply to ensure the animals are going to good homes.
The following information is from the June 2, 2015 Lifeline Animal Project Press Release:
LifeLine Animal Project CEO Rebecca Guinn says that offering fee-waived adoptions is a great way to increase adoption rates. ‘With summer here, twice as many animals are coming into the shelters as usual, and free adoptions tend to create a buzz of excitement and bring more people into shelters,’ she says. ‘According to numerous studies, fee-waived promotions increase adoptions without compromising the quality of care that the animals receive.’

About LifeLine Animal Project (from the June 2, 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.
