Picture 3Atlanta-based cosmetic and accessory firm Anisa International is matching every dollar donated to LifeLine Animal Project – up to $25,000 – during its second annual Challenge Grant through Dec. 31.

Founded in 2002, LifeLine Animal Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to find homes for animals and handles animal services for both DeKalb and Fulton counties.

“In less than a year, we’ve been able to reduce the counties’ euthanasia rates by nearly half, but in order to eliminate the practice – LifeLine’s ultimate goal – donations are greatly needed,” said Rebecca Guinn, executive director of LifeLine Animal Project. “Our Fulton and DeKalb county budgets allow us to take in animals and provide basic vet care, but only shelter them for five to seven days. It’s the donations of pet lovers and care of volunteers that allow us to go the extra mile to continue reducing the euthanasia and homeless animals rates in Atlanta.”

“We’re reissuing the Challenge Grant this year so LifeLine can continue aiding metro-Atlanta’s pet population,” said Anisa Telwar, president and founder of Anisa International. “I’ve been involved with LifeLine since its inception because the work it does targets the problem at the source.”
