Tails on Trails Club is a Waggin’ Good Time



Dogs need exercise too, so sign up your four-legged best friend for the Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites’ Tails on Trails Club.  Membership comes with a t-shirt for you and a bandana for your dog, so you’ll both go exploring in style. You’ll also get a checklist to keep track of your progress as you hike more than a dozen state parks across Georgia. There’s no rush to finish the quest; Bailey can stop and sniff all along the way! Dogs must be kept on a leash, and pet-friendly accommodations are available at most Georgia State Parks.

Bring Your Pup On A Tail-Wagging Adventure

With lakes, mountains, forests and more in between, hikers and their four-legged friends are challenged to explore trails at Georgia State Parks.

We’d love to see your photos! Tag #GaStateParks and #TailsOnTrailsClub.

Members Brag All The Time With An Exclusive Club Shirt

Membership is $20. Join the club by purchasing Tails on Trails Club membership online and we’ll mail you your own club shirt and a matching bandanna* for your pet to wear while you hike. You will receive a digital checklist so you can keep track of your accomplishments (This checklist can be downloaded from your email invoice or from your account profile page). Hike 12 of the 42 participating parks below with your furry companion to earn bragging-rights and a certificate of completion.

You don’t need a dog to be able to complete the challenge on your own. No time limit applies, so hikers can take as long as they wish to complete the requirements. Dogs must be kept on a maximum 6′ leash when in a Georgia State Park. Please clean up after your pet. Refer to Pets at State Parks for more information. Dog-friendly cottages are also available.

* Please note, due to a shortage from our supplier, the Tails on Trails bandannas are now hunter green but have the same design as before. The shirts are still purple.

Move over tv reality stars, there are new bachelors and bachelorettes in town, and they are drama-free and ready to find true love during LifeLine Animal Project’s Bachelor in Pawradise adoption promotion!  Now through February 14, all pets living in LifeLine Animal Project foster homes may be adopted for only $14, including the pet’s spay/neuter, microchip and vaccinations.  The promotion applies to pets living in foster homes from all LifeLine shelters, including DeKalb County Animal Services, Fulton County Animal Services and the LifeLine Community Animal Center.

Gus- a sweet colorful character

There are hundreds of wonderful pets to choose from who are ready to provide you with a lifetime of love, and the majority are already housebroken and know some basic commands.  Additionally, adopting a pet from a foster home means you can avoid the animal shelters and stay safe.

LifeLine Animal Project Saves 13 Animals before Christmas

Santa made dreams for 10 dogs and three cats who are now safe at LifeLine Animal Project’s Community Animal Center shelter. Albany Humane Society (Albany, GA) reached out to LifeLine for help this past week, because the shelter is overcrowded and has no resources to provide heartworm treatment to 10 of their “long-timer” dogs who are heartworm positive.  The dogs had been housed at the Albany shelter since May, and unless someone stepped up to help, they were scheduled to be euthanized. 

LifeLine staff drove to Albany yesterday, picking up the 10 dogs, plus three cats, and bringing them to the safety of their private Community Animal Center shelter.  The dogs will all receive heartworm treatment at LifeLine’s Community Animal Center Veterinary clinic, an affordable-care clinic that is open to the public.

LifeLine, which manages the DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services shelters, has saved over 1,000 at-risk animals from crowded rural county shelters since March.  They are the first organization ever to achieve no-kill rates at the DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services shelters due to their innovative approach which addresses the root causes of animal homeless.    

If you are interested in temporarily fostering one of the dogs and giving them a quiet place to rest while they undergo heartworm treatment, please email foster@lifelineanimal.org.  To make a donation to help care for these animals, please visit LifeLineAnimal.org/donate
