Dawn & Hemingway

While eating at Mellow Mushroom, Dawn would stop by Good Mews when we were on Johnson Ferry and look at the kitties through the window. In 2012, she decided she had to be a part of that and started volunteering! Dawn is a huge cat lover and has contributed so much to Good Mews over the years. Not only is she on the Adoption Committee, she is also on Clean & Feed and is the chairperson for Kitty Buddy. She also does other “odd jobs” like painting the inside of the shelter and helping out in the Memorial Garden.

Dawn is very flexible, working several adoption shifts each month and doing the majority of our week-day appointments. She says nothing makes her happier than sending a kitty to their forever home. Because she is a Kitty Buddy, she knows the cats very well and is able to help our adopters find the perfect match.

Not all of Dawn’s volunteering duties are at the shelter. She is also a foster mom and will often care for our hospice cats, providing a loving environment so they can peacefully cross over the Rainbow Bridge when they are ready. Dawn also fosters cats with medical needs who stay with her until they’ve recovered and can be adopted. Dawn has five cats of her own: Nickie and Panda, and Good Mews kitties Isadore, China, and Bence. When she is not volunteering at Good Mews, Dawn enjoys gardening and caving.

The Adoption Committee would like to thank Dawn for all her hard work and dedication. And the Good Mews kitties would also like to thank her for helping them find loving homes!


Each month, one of our volunteers will be honored with a spotlight
