Humane Society of Cobb County Inc

A nonprofit organization

With 2022 coming to a close, pet overpopulation in Georgia is in an alarming state. Over the past year, cats, dogs and various other pets have been abandoned or surrendered at an unprecedented rate. Like shelters and rescues everywhere, we are chronically full and are being overwhelmed by the numbers. A vast majority of contact is from those who are asking to surrender their pets. We do our best to council and provide resources that may enable owners to keep their pets out of shelters.

As difficult as this past year has been, we have continued to save lives by pulling vulnerable animals from our county kill shelter. Our pull program is literally a matter of life and death and we do what we can to provide a sanctuary for those whose lives would otherwise be at risk. We consider this a critical part of our mission and always strive to answer the call when it comes.

We go a step beyond just pulling, though. We aim to help the difficult cases, the ones who are often left behind. These can include animals who are shy, those who aren’t the prettiest, older animals, FIV or FeLV positive cats and the sick or injured who need expensive veterinary care. With help from people like you, we can give these animals a second chance at life through our no-kill shelter.

Please help us increase our ability to offer assistance to animals in dire need, by participating this GAgives on Giving Tuesday! Every contribution to our organization, no matter how great or small, monetary or in-kind, helps us provide support to homeless animals in Cobb County.

Our Mission

The mission of the Anna L. Haas Humane Society of Cobb County is to promote humane welfare and responsible animal guardianship through educational community outreach, shelter, and spay/neuter programs. 

Who We Are 

The Humane Society of Cobb County (HSCC) is an independent, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) no-kill shelter and charitable humane animal welfare organization. We do not receive any funding from and are not affiliated with Cobb County government, or any other local or national humane society or animal welfare organization. Therefore, we are primarily funded by donations.

The HSCC has served our community since 1957 and transitioned from a foster-based model to a brick-and-mortar no-kill adoption facility in the 1990s through the generosity of donors and supportive animal advocates. 

Our pet food pantry has assisted many Cobb County pet owners for decades, who have struggled to keep their furry companions. As supplies allow, we provide temporary support to those in need to allow animals the opportunity to stay in loving homes and out of shelters.

What We Do

Our volunteer-based, no-kill shelter provides assistance to animals and pet owners in Cobb County and surrounding areas. We provide a safe haven as space allows for homeless animals, most of whom are in need of medical care or have been neglected or abused. Each animal is observed and assessed at the time of intake, and an appropriate care plan is developed to support their health and well-being as we work to find their best matched loving family and forever home. Some animals with chronic or challenging conditions remain at our sanctuary and receive ongoing care, love, and attention from staff, volunteers, and visitors. All cats and dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and current with vaccinations prior to adoption.

Our felines enjoy free-roam dwellings outfitted specifically for cats and kittens, some of which have special needs. Integrated wall shelving provides vertical space and enrichment, while generous window space offers views to the outdoors and to other interior rooms. To accommodate those with specific diet requirements, chronic medical conditions, and those who are FIV and/or FeLV positive, individual suites offer free-roam space and eliminate the need for those animals to be in cages. We continue to look for ways to improve our campus environment in order to best serve the animals under our care.

The Humane Society of Cobb County provides education about humane and responsible animal guardianship through programs and community outreach and offers various resources to those in need. With the assistance of dedicated volunteers and generous supporters, our programs continue to make a positive difference in the lives of animals.
