ATLANTA, GA – (April 17, 2012). LifeLine Animal Project, a non-profit animal rescue and advocacy organization, will throw its biggest party of the year in downtown Atlanta on Thursday, May 17th from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. Dogs are welcome guests and LifeLine encourages party goers to “dare to wear black!”, tying into the Lint Roller theme.
It’s a light-hearted party approach to raising awareness and support for the many serious issues that LifeLine tackles daily. Since 2002 LifeLine has worked tirelessly to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in area shelters, promote adoption and rescue and rehabilitate homeless pets who have nowhere else to turn. The non-profit operates two low-cost Spay & Neuter Clinics to serve other rescue groups and the public and have performed 50,000 spay/neuter surgeries to date. More than 130,000 dogs and cats will enter Atlanta area shelters in a year’s time, at a cost to the taxpayers of more than $15 million annually, LifeLine’s clinics are an affordable option and are vital to easing this burden.
“One of the reasons that we have been able to do all we’ve done for the community in the last decade is the funds raised from our Lint Roller parties, and we look forward to celebrating 10 years of success at this year’s gala,” says Blythe Randolph, who serves as LifeLine’s board chair, “We are particularly grateful to our co-chairs of the event, Patti Dickey and Amy Lance, for working so hard to help us and the pets of our guests celebrate LifeLine’s anniversary in such a fun way!”
The rescue group, still led by founding executive director Rebecca Guinn, also operates a no-kill shelter in Avondale Estates. Their Community LifeLine initiative goes deep into metro neighborhoods to serve pets and pet owners in need.
Presenting sponsors for Lint Roller include Anisa International and The Atlantan.
