Rescue Groups

Rescue groups play a critical part in achieving our lifesaving mission to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable pets in metro Atlanta. Rescue groups have accounted for an average of 24% of our total lifesaving outcomes! Your rescue group can be part of this incredible mission.

We welcome rescue groups within the state of Georgia and from out-of-state. Georgia rescue groups must be licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and provide a copy of their shelter license and list of agents authorized by your group to rescue. For out-of-state rescue groups, we’ll need a copy of the paperwork that your state requires to operate your rescue or shelter.

Becoming a LifeLine rescue partner starts with completing our Rescue Group Application form. If you have any questions, please reach out to our Rescue Coordinator via email at rescue@dekalbanimalservices.com.
