“Spring is almost here, and that means LifeLine Animal Project will soon be bursting at the seams at our county shelters as we take in between 40 and 70 animals every day”, Karen Hirsh, LifeLine’s Public Relations Director, told us. She further explained that all the new puppies and kittens that are being born will need space to grow, and sadly this is one area where we are limited.
