From the Decatur - Avondale Estates Patch: "LifeLine Animal Project’s management has dramatically lowered the euthanasia rate at DeKalb County Animal Services in Decatur. However, the approaching warmer weather typically means skyrocketing intake levels at DCAS due to the high number of puppies and kittens being born.
From Wardell Castle in the Clairemont Great Lakes Neighborhood Association: Dear Neighbors: First of all, I am happy to report that the euthanasia rate at the DeKalb County Animal Shelter hit a historic low of 18% during the month of November. While LifeLine is doing a FANTASTIC job of running the shelter, they can't do it alone.During the Holidays, as we think of ways to help our community and those in need, please consider donating these items to the Animal Shelter.
Especially high on their "wish list" are:

My name is Susan Feingold and I'm the new Shelter Director at DeKalb County Animal Services. Our shelter has experienced an extremely high intake of animals this past couple of months and in an effort to get the dogs and cats adopted, we're having a "Tail End of Summer" adoption promotion for the rest of September. Dog adoptions are only $20 and cat adoptions are only $10 including the spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, etc (well over a $200 retail value). Photos of pets for adoption are on our website at: http://www.dekalbanimalservices.com/. DeKalb County and our shelter are also overwhelmed with an extremely high number of pit bulls and pit bull mixes, and we have a new program that hopes to help fix that.
