Life Line Animal Project seeking donations

Posted: Updated:

Life Line Animal Project in Avondale Estates is seeking year-end donations for its two Atlanta Metro clinics. The money will help increase the discounted animal welfare work they've been doing for a decade now.

A local company, Anisa International, an Atlanta cosmetic brush design firm, will match donations up to $25,000.

If donations are made by the Monday deadline, that would add $50,000 to spend on low-cost spay and neuter surgeries, vet care and adoption of homeless pets.

"There are a lot of families especially in these economic times that really are in dire need of these services," said Chris Mitchell, who manages the College Park location.

For 10 years now, the staff at Life Line Animal Project Clinic has been helping to ease that financial burden and helping to control pet overpopulation at the same time.

"We do what we do because we love animals. It's our passion - all of us," said Mitchell.

"It's that passion and their solutions that sparked this 'Double Impact Campaign,'" said Anisa Telwar, with Anisa International.

It's an end of the year donation challenge by Anisa International. The Atlanta-based cosmetic brush design firm is offering to match donations to the clinic - dollar for dollar up to $25,000 - which could mean $50,000 is low-cost animal care.

"The numbers are staggering of animals that are euthanized at shelters because there are too many and not enough homes. The only way to stop that is through spay and neuter," Mitchell said. 

Life Line has performed more than 55,000 spay and neuter surgeries since its founding a decade ago.
