Do you love long walks on the Atlanta BeltLine and delicious treats under a vibrant Atlanta sunset? Have you struggled to find the right company to enjoy them with? Perhaps you’ve been looking for your new best friend in all the wrong places.

LifeLine Animal Project may have the answer. The organization works to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in metro Atlanta shelters and has some creative ways of doing so. Earlier this year, they created dating profiles for a handful of their adoptable pups to help find their perfect match. With their Weekend Warriors program, you can skip that awkward first date and enjoy a weekend-long staycation with a shelter pup.

Whether you’re out exploring Atlanta with your dog or getting to know a potential new addition, the number of dog-friendly Atlanta spots are abundant. Explore some of LifeLine’s favorites with your special four-legged friend.

As you can see, Atlanta has abundant options for animal lovers. Enjoy exploring with your favorite pup.
