From October 1 to 6, Atlanta Bumble users will encounter some furry and adorable dating profiles. To kick off Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, the app will feature adoptable dogs from DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services as part of this year’s #FindYourFido initiative.
LifeLine Animal Project, who manages DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services, provides lifesaving solutions to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs in county shelters. The nonprofit has increased shelter adoptions by 300 percent and provides services to over 30,000 animals annually.
With approximately 3,300,000 dogs entering U.S. animal shelters every year, LifeLine knows that every adoption counts and urges perspective dog parents to adopt.
“We encourage local supporters to help promote our wonderful animals and spread the word that pet adoption should be everyone’s first choice when it comes to finding your next Fido,” said spokesperson Karen Hirsch.
Swipe right on one of these Bumble pups, and you’ll get information on how to meet and adopt the furry friend. All dogs on Bumble, as well as all shelter sweethearts over 25 pounds – who have already been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped – can be adopted free of charge.
If you can’t adopt, LifeLine encourages you to help support the campaign by sharing profiles of adoptable dogs from LifeLineAnimal.org on social media.
