Animal lovers came out in full support of the Dawson County Humane Society, putting their paws together and clapping as they celebrated a decade’s worth of milestones at the shelter’s 10th anniversary celebration June 10. It was a sunny afternoon with a nice breeze when society supporters gathered on the front lawn of the shelter, eating tasty frozen treats provided by Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers and taking tours of the recently renovated facility. An expanded cat living space, additional runs and kennels, expansions to the dog intake area and a metal roof over the puppy house’s outside play area were just a few of the shelter’s updates from the past couple years. Board President Carolyn Bowen welcomed everybody to the celebration, and there was much to celebrate as just a few weeks ago the humane society purchased the tract of land where the shelter sits from Etowah Water and Sewer Authority. The Samuel Freeman Charitable Trust and the Nancy F. Noblin Foundation funded the purchase of the land via grant monies.
