Atlanta-Based Company donates $40K to renovate Fulton County Animal Shelter

99d6c7fa2bc88ee2212f292838e572faThe Fulton County Animal Shelter, managed by LifeLine Animal Project, is going to the cats and dogs. A $40,000 donation from Atlanta-based Anisa International, a global cosmetic brush and accessory solutions innovator, helped fund brand new meet + greet and outdoor run yards for individuals to meet potential adoptees and the animals to enjoy expanded outdoor play space.
“These renovations provide even more interaction between families and our animals, helping to increase adoptions and save-rates,” said Rebecca Guinn, CEO of LifeLine Animal Project. “Donations to our mission fund the innovative programming implemented at the Fulton County Animal Shelter and accelerate our goal to make Atlanta a no-kill city by the end of 2016.”
At the FCAS meet + greet yard, those looking to adopt can now bring children and pets to meet potential adoptees in a safe, controlled environment. The new outdoor run yards provide more than 600 feet of fresh exercise space for dogs at the shelter, increasing time outdoors and physical activity.
A grand opening event celebrating the outdoor play area renovations will be held on Monday, August 31, at 11:00 a.m.
“LifeLine is significantly impacting our community with an 85 percent save-rate for animals in the shelter,” said Anisa Telwar Kaicker, president of Anisa International and LifeLine board chair. “Supporting LifeLine’s mission helps drive passionate, progressive solutions for animals in their care.”
Anisa Telwar Kaicker, a longtime LifeLine advocate, was recently featured along with other local spokespeople in LifeLine’s “I’m In” advertising campaign. Launched earlier this year, LifeLine’s “I’m In” campaign is dedicated to making Atlanta a no-kill city by 2016. The Fulton County and DeKalb County Animal Shelters managed by LifeLine are now within a few percentage points of the no-kill threshold, defined as saving 90 percent or more of the animals entering the shelters.
“LifeLine’s work with FCAS is making a difference in Fulton County,” said Dr. John Eaves, Fulton County chairman. “Through the generous and consistent support of partners and the community, access to quality adoption and other animal services is dramatically decreasing the population of homeless animals in our community.”
