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.
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:

Kennesaw Mountain Animal Hospital (KMAH) is a proud partner with the Humane Society of Cobb County. KMAH is a stress-free facility that provides a range of services for the animals under the HSCC’s care, including vaccinations, annual check-ups, surgeries, microchips, dental work, and prescription medications.
Founder Dr. Carrie Friedewald, along with Associate Veterinarians Dr. Melissa Roberts and Dr. Taryn McDonald, lead KMAH’s exceptional care team with superior knowledge, skill, and compassion. They run a successful facility that, in addition to a full range of veterinary services, also offers quality grooming services, day-play fun, innovative boarding experiences, and training programs. Their love of animals and desire to give back to the community they serve has been the catalyst for their partnership with the HSCC, wherein they generously provide a full spectrum of discounted veterinary services to ensure that the HSCC’s shelter animals receive the level of medical care and attention that all companion animals deserve.
Two HSCC cats are now permanent members of the KMAH Family. KMAH chose Quincy, their newest resident, after providing care for his congenital eye defect during his first two years at the HSCC; now his condition can be readily treated at his new forever home. They also adopted a black kitty, Frankie, from the HSCC, who thinks he owns the hospital. Quincy and Frankie now reside at KMAH’s new state-of-the-art facility with two other house kitties.
Kennesaw Mountain Animal Hospital is conveniently located at the corner of Kennesaw Due West Road and Stilesboro Rd.
