Micky has been a part of the Dalton/Whitfield County scene since 1989 when he began working in Dalton. He and his wife Rita reside with their 4 dogs (Maddie, Callie, Suzie and Ebony) and 3 cats (Missy, CC and Simba). His involvement began with the Humane Society in November, 2006. After serving as Vice President in 2007, Micky’s leadership abilities, his professionalism and his deep passion for animals led to the presidency of the Humane Society in November 2008.
The desire to serve and learn in order to grow the Humane Society to meet the needs of the animals, the people and the county is what drives him to attend workshops such as Shelter Operations School by American Humane Society and the Humane Society of the United States Animal Expo, seminars by Humane Logic and The Philanthorpy Team, and webinars by Pet Smart Charities. He has visited 14 other animal rescue groups from Florida to New York to gain best practices to bring back and put forth in Dalton.
“I am honored for the opportunity and look forward to serving the people and animals of Whitfield County. This is YOUR Humane Society. We are their voice, their only life line, please join our commitment to the animals of our community.” Micky Burrows

Dwayne’s goal would be to see the number of dogs and cats spayed and neutered to rise, so the number of dogs and cats that are put down each week decreases.
Dwayne states that, “with the help of volunteers, we can all make a difference in these dogs and cats lives. It’s amazing to see all their different personalities and to think they weren’t wanted by someone. Help make a difference in Whitfield County adopt a dog or cat today. If you have some free time and want to help, Volunteer at the Humane Society Of Northwest GA you will see that yours, along with everyone else’s hard work pays off when you see that they get a new forever home.” Dwayne Roy
