The public is invited to attend the dedication and ribbon cutting of the “new” home of the Cedartown/Polk County Humane Society on Thursday, October 6, 2022, at 4 p.m.
After the Cedartown/Polk County Humane Society was chartered in 2014, although it did not have a permanent physical presence, it worked to rescue abused, neglected, unwanted animals in the county by arranging foster care, adoptions, low-cost neutering/spaying, and transporting animals to no-kill shelters in other parts of the state.
A Family’s Sadness Fulfills a Dream
In January 2021, Cedartown native Kerry Hall passed away after a short battle with cancer. Kerry loved all kinds of animals…dogs, cats, birds, and even turtles, and during her life she cared for scores of animals on her property located between Cedartown and Rockmart.
When she died, her family could think of no better way to honor her memory than to donate her house and outbuildings to become a permanent, official no-kill shelter and adoption center for God’s creatures she loved so dearly.
The Hall family has transformed their loss into a living memorial that fulfills the dream of the Cedartown/Polk County Humane Society and the hundreds of volunteers who have supported the organization since it was founded.
Local philanthropies and countless individuals rose to the occasion and contributed funding and sweat equity into transforming the property into a top-class shelter facility
The Board of Directors of the Cedartown/Polk County Humane Society, Charlotte Harrison, the organization’s Director, and the Polk County Chamber of Commerce invite the public to attend the official grand opening, dedication, and ribbon cutting of the property located at 3416 Rockmart Highway, Cedartown.
