Animal Lifeline

Annually thousands of lost and found animals remain unclaimed and many are euthanised as a result. Many people network lost and found animals rigorously and passionately, yet the number of homeless animals and those that are put to sleep is on the increase.
Animal Lifeline NPC was created with the express purpose of reducing the numbers of lost and found animals that become homeless and alleviating their suffering and facilitating their re-homing where necessary.
