Several Atlanta-area Whole Foods Markets will take part in Community Giving Day to benefit LifeLine Animal Project on Wednesday, Mar. 30.

A press release said, “All locations inside the perimeter (Sandy Springs, Briarcliff, Buckhead, and Ponce de Leon) will contribute five percent of net sales to LifeLine Animal Project. LifeLine will have dogs at the Briarcliff location from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and LifeLine representatives will be on hand at all locations to share information about their initiatives.”

The press release went on to say, “LifeLine Animal Project, the nonprofit that took over management of both DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services in 2013, is now achieving no-kill levels at their Fulton County shelter. They are also close to achieving no-kill at their DeKalb County shelter, and these shelters take in between 20 to 40 animals each daily.  Additionally, LifeLine has performed over 95,000 low cost or free spay/neuters at their two clinics.”

Earlier this month, LifeLine said in a press release that, “that March marks the fourth month that LifeLine at Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS) has achieved no-kill levels, defined as saving 90 percent or more of the animals.”

The shelter is offering $40 adoptions on all dogs over 25 lbs and $25 adoptions on all cats throughout March.
