The Community Responded

According to LifeLine Animal Project FCAS Director Lara Hudson, LifeLine cannot thank Atlanta enough for all of the support they received. “We asked the Atlanta community to step up and adopt, and the community responded by turning out in large numbers and even surpassing the amazing results we had last year! To say we are grateful is an understatement,” she says.

Hardly A Dry Eye In The Shelter

LifeLine DCAS Director Kerry Moyers-Horten says employees were overjoyed with the Black Friday/Cyber Monday results. “The employees here were so moved by seeing so many pets adopted, that there was hardly a dry eye in the shelter by the close of Cyber Monday. We cannot thank everyone enough for their support and hope it continues throughout December.”
