Three of Atlanta’s largest animal welfare organizations—LifeLine Animal Project, Atlanta Humane Society and Best Friends Atlanta—have come together to form ATLimals, a collaborative effort that will highlight the exceptional animals living in Atlanta’s shelters and looking for forever families. The goal of ATLimals is to give a larger, more cohesive voice to all shelter animals and create a platform to share the faces of Atlanta’s incredible rescue pets. Together, we hope to make Atlanta an even happier and healthier community for pets, and we can’t do it without your support.

More About Best Friends Animal Society:

Best Friends Animal Society is a leading national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America's shelters. In addition to running lifesaving programs in partnership with more than 2,500 animal welfare groups across the country, Best Friends has regional centers in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Salt Lake City and Houston, and operates the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals. Founded in 1984, Best Friends is a pioneer in the no-kill movement and has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters nationwide from 17 million per year to about 1.5 million. That means there are still more than 4,100 dogs and cats killed every day in shelters, just because they don’t have safe places to call home. Determined to get that number to zero by the year 2025, Best Friends and its nationwide network of members and partners are working to Save Them All®.
