 Bring Home a Furry Valentine for only $14 during February

ATLANTA (February 2, 2015) — There is nothing like true love, and yours is waiting for you at DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS) and Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS).  During the month of February, LifeLine Animal Project, the nonprofit that manages DCAS and FCAS, is offering a ‘My Furry Valentine’ promotion where all dogs and cats ages six months and older may be adopted for only $14.  This promotion applies to all dogs and cats at DCAS, FCAS or the LifeLine Animal Project shelter. Standard adoption screening criteria still applies.  Adopted pets will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm or combo tested and dewormed – services with a retail value of over $200!

According to LifeLine Animal Project CEO Rebecca Guinn, everyone wins when a pet is adopted.  “Dogs and cats provide unconditional love which has been shown to have positive effects on their owner’s health,” she says.  “And when you adopt a shelter pet, you’re saving a life, so both human and animal reap the benefits.”

Whatever your needs, likes or limitations, there is a pet (or two) at DCAS, FCAS or LifeLine Animal Project right now that is perfect for your household.  For adoption hours, locations and pictures of available animals, please visit, or
