People And Pets Can Be Party Animals At LifeLine's May 17 Fundraiser

'Lint Roller Party' raises money and awareness while giving pet owners a chance to party with their pups.

When was the last time you and your dog were invited to a big bash?

LifeLine Animal Project is inviting you both to one.

The non-profit animal advocacy and rescue, located in Avondale Estates, is holding their biggest fundraiser of the year on Thursday, May 17, at the Rialto Center for the Arts at Georgia State University.

It's called the Lint Roller Party and dogs are welcome to attend, free of charge, with their owners. Dogs are required to be on leashes and must be registered as party attendees when their owner buys a ticket for the fundraiser.

Tickets are $50 in advance and $75 at the door and the evening celebrates LifeLine's 10th anniversary with live entertainment, an open bar, vegetarian cuisine, a silent auction and more. All proceeds benefit LifeLine's shelter and community programs.

LifeLine's mission is to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in area shelters, promote pet adoption, supply low-cost spay and neuter to pet owners and to rescue and rehabilitate homeless animals who have no where else to go.

Their Community LifeLine initiative goes into Atlanta neighborhoods to help pet owners in need and to supply education and resources for dog and cat owners.

“One of the reasons that we have been able to do all we’ve done for the community in the last decade is the funds raised from our Lint Roller parties, and we look forward to celebrating 10 years of success at this year's gala,” says Blythe Randolph, who serves as LifeLine’s board chair, “We are particularly grateful to our co-chairs of the event, Patti Dickey and Amy Lance, for working so hard to help us and the pets of our guests celebrate LifeLine’s anniversary in such a fun way!”

Sponsors for the big event include Anisa International, The Atlantan, Atlanta Responsibully Coalition and author Amanda Kyle Williams.
