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.
The Anna L. Haas Humane Society of Cobb County was founded in 1957 and initially operated (independently) from a small space within the Cobb County Animal Control facilities. Our goal at that time was to save as many animals as possible that were scheduled to be euthanized and place them under HSCC foster guardianship until they were adopted.
Because we did not have our own facility to house the animals we were working to save, we regularly transported them to remote sites to participate in adoption events. Our dedicated fosters and volunteers also worked diligently to find forever homes for these animals in between adoption events.
After receiving a generous bequest in the 1990s, the HSCC finally had the ability to purchase and renovate a property to house animals and facilitate adoptions. In 2014, this facility was converted to a cage-free environment for our feline friends (with a few exceptions for special medical and dietary needs). We are currently in the process of constructing a new animal housing facility on our small campus, which will enable us to to further improve the lives of the cats, dogs, and exotics who come under our care.
Java Cats Café
We have partnered with Java Cats Café Marietta since its opening in July 2018. Java Cats Marietta operates as a foster agent for the Humane Society of Cobb County, and its cat lounge is an extension of our facility. Through this partnership, adoptable cats from the HSCC live in the Java Cats Marietta cat lounge where they can interact with visitors who are looking to adopt, or who just want to relax with a yummy beverage and spend some time with cats.
Java Cats Café is located just off the Marietta Square:
