LifeLine Animal Project wears many hats. In addition to managing two county shelters (DeKalb and Fulton), saving the lives of feral cats (over 20,000) and being the largest low-cost spay/neuter resource in the region (providing 65,000 free or low-cost surgeries), LifeLine has a rehabilitation shelter for special needs dogs and cats. At the shelter, LifeLine provides both medical and behavioral rehabilitation for abandoned and abused animals, particularly victims of animal cruelty. It is amazing to see these animals turn around, get adopted and become beloved pets, but LifeLine couldn’t do it without the help of a wonderful partner, Frogs to Dogs.
Founded by Andrew Zbeeb, Frogs to Dogs is an award-winning dog training and pet sitting company. Their expert dog trainers have been volunteering with LifeLine for four years, providing several training classes per week and working miracles with the dogs. Under their expertise and guidance, thousands of LifeLine’s dogs have conquered behavioral problems, overcome fears and learned how to become good pets.
According to Andrew, his company began working with LifeLine because he appreciated LifeLine’s efforts to help animals. “LifeLine focuses on the hard work of rehabilitating less fortunate dogs and cats, and both of our organizations believe in giving animals the opportunity to heal from their past,” he says. “Also, a large percentage of LifeLine’s staff has dedicated their lives to animal welfare. Since our trainers are also equally dedicated to rehabilitating the dogs, there’s a natural alliance between our organizations.“
And dedicated they are. Visit the homes of several Frogs to Dogs trainers, and you’ll find several LifeLine dogs temporarily living with them in ‘foster care’ until they get adopted. Likewise, Andrew didn’t hesitate when he was asked to join LifeLine’s Board of Directors two years’ ago, and he currently serves as the board’s facilities chairperson. In addition to founding Frogs to Dogs, in 2007 Andrew also founded the only animal ambulance service in Georgia, Atlanta Animal Ambulance.
