Metro Atlanta Animal Shelters Urgently Seek Adopters And Fosters During Pandemic
With no signs of COVID-19 slowing down any time soon, businesses and organizations are scurrying to find their new normal.
LifeLine Animal Project manages DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services and is one of the largest animal rescue organizations in the metro Atlanta area. Just last month they took in a total of 1,094 animals.
The organization is anticipating a drop in the number of its employees and volunteers, but not animals in need. Now, they are urgently seeking adopters and fosters to avoid what it described as an “imminent space crisis.”
Through March 20, the organization is offering free dog adoptions by way of their new “drive-through” adoption process. People interested in any of the animals in the shelter are encouraged to participate in meet and greets which are being held outside until further notice.
For those not in a position to adopt, the organization asked they consider temporarily fostering an animal in an attempt to get as many animals out of the shelters as possible.
