“Paint Your Pet” Fundraiser

Get ready for the always popular “Paint Your Pet” fundraiser at Canvas by U on Saturday, November 5th from 7-10PM. This event is open to the public, so it will sell out fast. Canvas by U is located at 300 Johnson Ferry Rd, Suite 214 in Marietta.

Registration is $45 with part of the proceeds going to Good Mews. After registration, you will email a photo of your pet. Your photos will be lightly sketched out on a canvas to get you started. Food and drinks will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own as well.

You must register by November 1st to allow time to prepare your canvas.


Meet the author of “Beyond the Fur”

Animal-lovers, join us at Good Mews on Sunday, November 13, at 5:00 p.m., for a discussion with Tammy Billups, author of the new book,“Beyond the Fur.” Purchase the book at the event and not only will Tammy personalize it, she will also donate 20% of the proceeds to Good Mews!

We all know animals have feelings and emotions, but wouldn’t you like to better understand the human-animal relationship? Tammy is a certified bioenergetics therapist and animal energy healer who has appeared on CNN and The Oprah Winfrey Show. This is sure to be a lively discussion as Tammy shares her insights and wisdom about the deeper connection we can achieve with our animals.

This is a free event! We look forward to seeing you there.

Good Mews is pleased to offer fall reading sessions for students in grades 1—8.

The program is designed to help children sharpen their reading skills and to provide enrichment for the cats and kittens. The interaction also teaches kids the importance of empathy, animal welfare, and community service. Each 90-minute reading session can accommodate up to 10 students, and one adult must accompany up to two students. Sessions are planned for:

Featured Cat of the Month


Monet is a beautiful girl, inside and out, and everyone that meets her just loves her. She is a wonderful companion and loves being in a home. She is quiet and her favorite past-time is sitting at a window, watching the birds and squirrels. At night, she loves snuggling up in bed with her family.

Monet is only four years old and has already had two families. Both loved her dearly and when they had to return her to Good Mews, they were heartbroken. And as you can imagine, Monet was heartbroken as well. She doesn’t understand how she could go from living in a home where everyone loves her, to being back at the shelter.
