THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF COBB COUNTY IS EXPANDING, AND NAMING OPPORTUNITIES ARE AVAILABLE!
Thanks to the generosity of animal lovers in our community, we have been able to expand our small campus near the Marietta Square. We’re constructing a new $1M no-kill shelter at 553 Waterman Street SE, which will operate in conjunction with our existing no-kill facility at 148 S Fairground Street SE. We will also be opening a new Welcome Center at Waterman Street.
Naming opportunities are available for spaces within all three of these campus buildings, as well as for equipment and furnishings. Please see the illustrations below for layout and orientation information, along with a comprehensive list of available naming opportunities.
To start a conversation about pursuing any of these naming opportunities, please contact HSCC Board Chair and President Stephen Imler via email (email@example.com) or phone (678-294-7263).
Each Donor’s gift, with permission granted, will be announced by the HSCC via social media and featured on our website. Each Donor will be further recognized by installation of a permanent, customized plaque (for rooms/spaces) or plate (for equipment/furnishings). Once your plaque/plate has been created and installed, we will send you a photo. We’d also encourage you to visit in person!
The Humane Society of Cobb County Campus
Our campus near the historic Marietta Square is comprised of four separate buildings situated between Fairground Street, Waterman Street, and South Avenue. All four of our buildings have already been named in recognition of generous gifts received from donors and benefactors. There are currently naming opportunities available for spaces and equipment within three of our four buildings.
The new Waterman Street shelter will be known as the John and Patricia Cleary Shelter, in recognition of a substantial gift from the Cleary Estate. It will provide a low-stress, cageless environment for its feline residents. All cat rooms will offer generous window space, with views to the outdoors as well as interior windows. Cat-centric wall shelving will provide vertical space and enrichment.
The Waterman Street reception hub will be known as the Josie Jones Welcome Center, in recognition of a substantial gift from the Jones Estate. In addition to ample reception space, this building will host group activities and a new interactive learning center for visiting youth groups. It will also house our resident exotics (currently two birds, two chinchillas, and a ferret).
The Fairground Street Shelter is known as the George Keeler Activity Center, in recognition of a substantial gift from the Keeler Estate. With most of our cats moving to the new Waterman Street shelter, we will be able to expand the dog housing areas in our Fairground facility, allowing us to increase canine intake and help more dogs. We will also be able to greatly improve and expand our Intake and Medical Isolation areas for both dogs and cats.
The Annex is known as the Stephen W. Imler Annex, in recognition of a substantial donation from Steve Imler. This is an administrative building that houses working office and administrative space as well as storage. It is not accessible to the public. (No naming opportunities are available within the Annex at this time.)
