Earlier this month, Fulton County firefighters discovered 91 dogs while attending to a house fire in south Fulton County. The dogs, which were discovered alongside feces and urine, were part of a suspected hoarding situation. Local law mandated that the dogs were to be sent to animal control, and from there, they went to LifeLine Animal Project.

A nonprofit that has served the metro Atlanta area for more than fifteen years, LifeLine cares for nearly 30,000 animals each year. The organization has managed Fulton County Animal Services and the DeKalb County Animal Services shelter since 2013, with the goal of ending the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in metro Atlanta shelters. In 2016, the shelters received more than 40 animals per day.
