general adoption information

We have approximately 100 cats and kittens of all colors, ages, and personalities looking for their forever homes at any given time. We take our adoption process very seriously because our goal is not to adopt out the highest number of cats, but to place each cat in a loving home where he or she will live for his or her entire life.

Our adoption counselors are experienced matchmakers, ready to suggest candidates for your ideal lifetime companion. They will also provide information to you on a variety of topics, such as nail trimming techniques, proper ways to dispense medication to a cat, and introducing your new cat to your home.

Adoption Hours

Saturdays from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Sundays (except the first Sunday of the month) from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm.

Weekday appointments are based on counselor availability. If you would like to try to arrange a weekday appointment, please call 770-499-CATS (2287) or email our adoption volunteers at adopt@goodmews.org.

Adoption Process
The adoption process may take 1 – 2 hours, so please plan on setting aside this block of time when you visit. To save you some time, prior to your visit you may want to complete the Good Mews Adoption Survey*.
*Good Mews has the right to refuse any applicant for any reason. All submitted surveys become the property of Good Mews.
Adoption Fees
Adoption fees are $75.
Two Cats – If you adopt 2 cats, the first cat’s adoption fee is $75, the second cat’s adoption fee is $50.
Bonded Pairs – We also have some cats that are very bonded and are required to be adopted together. In this case the adoption fee for mandatory pairs is $75 for both cats.
Adoption Discounts – There are other adoption discounts available; be sure to check the Ongoing Programs and Promotions page for details.
