Good Mews is one of the few virtually cage-free, no-kill cat shelters in the State of Georgia. Since 1988, Good Mews has placed approximately 5,000 cats in permanent homes. The shelter receives no government support, relying solely on donations of time, service and money from its supporters, the public and area businesses. Good Mews is home to approximately 100 residents at any given time, most of whom live at the shelter; some also reside in foster care.
Good Mews is located in The Fountains at Olde Town shopping center just north of the intersection of Lower Roswell and Johnson Ferry Roads. The shelter occupies approximately 2,350 square feet. The combined maximum capacity is 100 cats. There is designated room with shelves and cat trees just for kittens. The main shelter is bright and inviting with numerous shelves, cat trees, beds, and even a t.v. and DVD player, which provides entertainment for the residents.
Big windows allow residents a birds-eye view of passer-bys and there is a living room area where potential adopters may spend one-on-one time with residents. We also have three special needs rooms where cats with special dietary or medical needs can reside comfortably apart from the general shelter population. In the back of the shelter, there is a kitchen area, an Intake Room with cages to observe new residents during the two week quarantine period, and an Isolation Room with cages where cats with contagious conditions are kept for treatment and observation.
