The DeKalb County Animal Services shelter remains open with enhanced safety protocols for our teams and visitors. DeKalb County Animal Services Officers will continue to respond to calls for service. For more information about the outbreak, including how you can support animals recovering in our care, please visit our FAQ page.

The DeKalb County Animal Shelter is out of housing space. We’re asking our community for help with stray pets so we can focus on emergency and critical situations. Animals in need will not and should not be abandoned. If you have found a healthy pet, please fill out a Found Pet Report.
If you need other assistance, please email pethelp@dekalbanimalservices.com.
Response time is delayed due to incredibly high volumes of animals and people in need of assistance.

Pet Care

LifeLine Animal Project has a number of vet care resources to share with our community and help keep your pets happy and healthy. Most services shared below are affordable, if not free, and offered year round!

FREE Pet Services For DeKalb County Residents

HPD Fall 2023-05-1201x742-1536a11

Thanks to a partnership with DeKalb County, free vet care services are available for DeKalb County residents who own cats or dogs and cannot afford to pay through LifeLine’s other low-cost vet care options.

Free vaccines (for up to 2 pets) are offered through LifeLine’s Mobile Clinic once a week in different locations throughout DeKalb County. Vaccines include DHPP for dogs, FVRCP for cats and Rabies for both dogs and cats. Your pet can receive a free health exam and microchip, too!

The upcoming mobile clinic vaccine dates are July 2nd, July 9th, July 16th, July 23rd and July 30th! Please select the location nearest to you when choosing a date during appointment registration.

Spay Neuter Impact Program (SNIP)

Keep your pets healthy, reduce the chance of certain cancers and curb bad behaviors by fixing your pet. Free spay/neuter surgeries (for up to 3 pets) are available through SNIP and done at the LifeLine Community Animal Center.

All free services referenced above are by appointment only. Residents must register using this link.
