Special Adoption Rate Applies to All Dogs over 25 lbs. and all Cats

ATLANTA, GA — (January 4, 2017)  LifeLine Animal Project, the nonprofit that cares for more animals than any other animal welfare agency in Georgia, invites you to keep your New Year’s resolution to be healthier by adopting a new pet for only $25!  During the month of January, adopters may choose any dog over 25 lbs. or any cat for only $25, including the pet’s spay/neuter, microchip and vaccines – a $300 value!

According to LifeLine Animal Project CEO Rebecca Guinn, everyone wins when a pet is adopted.  “When you adopt a pet, you’ll be giving yourself the gift of better health,” she says.  “According to The American Heart Association, people who own pets have a reduced risk for heart disease, visit the doctor less and live longer than people who don’t.”

All of LifeLine’s shelters are participating in the $25 adoption promotion, including:  DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS), Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS), the LifeLine Dog House & Kitty Motel and the LifeLine Cat Adoption Center.

Whatever your needs, likes or limitations, there is a pet (or two) available right now that is perfect for your household. To view animals available for adoption, for adoption rates, or for the shelters’ addresses and phone numbers, please visit, or
