Victory for Our Fulton Pets! LifeLine Wins the Bid Due to Mass Support

Pet Advocates Network

Jan 24, 2013 — We did it! Thanks to your heartfelt dedication, citizens of Fulton County, GA and allover the world, our government was convinced to choose LifeLine a no kill organization to run our animal control and services. At first this made news because there were so many emails from the Petition that the County Manager wanted to disqualify LifeLine (http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/story/20616742/supportive-emails-could-disqualify-shelters-bid-to-run-fulton-county-animal-services), but the Commissioners voted today in a stunning turn of events to disregard that request and award the contract to LifeLine. Commissioner Hausmann said in reference to the Petition emails "The overwhelming support that the community showed for them was very impressive. Very impressive," and that the emails helped convince her. http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/story/20663254/lifeline-animal-project-hired-to-run-fulton-co-animal-services We couldn't have done it without you!

Nearly 1,000 emails have been sent to Fulton County officials urging them to pick a popular charity to run the beleaguered county animal shelter. But some worry that enormous support may backfire and actually disqualify Lifeline Animal Project. Cadillac Kimberly woke up one morning determined to adopt a dog.
