For the fourth consecutive year, Best Friends Animal Society is sponsoring “Back in Black” – a nationwide campaign dedicated to increasing awareness and adoptions of black cats and dogs. This year’s campaign will run throughout the month of May. Click here to read more about this adoption campaign.
Good Mews Animal Foundation in metro Atlanta is one of the Best Friends’ No More Homeless Pets Network Partners that is participating in the “Back in Black” adoption promotion. Throughout the month of May you can adopt a black cat or a black and white cat for only $50. This a less than half of the regular $125 adoption fee and you will receive a goodie bag along with your new kitty.
Alice is one of the many Good Mews cats available for adoption for a reduced fee during May. She is a five-year old black domestic medium hair kitty. Alice recently posted a special message on the Good Mews Facebook page:
Hello, my name is Alice. I am a black kitty so I am part of the Back in Black adoption special supported by Best Friends Animal Society. All black and black /white cats have a reduced adoption fee of $50 and we go home with a goody-bag!
OK . . . so here is my gripe. I am going on my fourth year at Good Mews and I have still not found my forever home. I watch all of my friends come and go but nobody has bothered to pick me yet. OK, so maybe I am not in everyone’s face on the weekends, trying to sell myself, but I have seen a lot of shy cats find their homes, so why not me? I am not super shy, just a little shy. When I first got here, I would hide all of the time, but I have gotten a lot better. I am out and about on adoption days and I will even stand in people’s laps if I am in the mood. Or sometimes I will lay beside them and let them pet me.
Once I am in a home, I may be scared for a bit, but I will come around, I promise! I really love being in a home. I had one years ago, but my daddy had to travel for work and could not care for me and my housemates, so we came to Good Mews. All of my pals have been adopted except me and my sister, Snickers. We just can’t figure out why. But maybe my luck will change during the special and someone will give me the loving home I dream about.

Good Mews is a cage-free, no-kill cat shelter offering an alternative to traditional animal shelters in the Metro Atlanta area. They provide a safe haven for homeless, abused, or abandoned cats until they can be placed in permanent, loving homes. Since 1988, Good Mews has placed over 7,000 cats in forever homes. The shelter receives no government support and relies solely on donations of time, services, goods and money from its many supporters and local businesses. Good Mews is home to approximately 100 residents on any given day – most of whom reside at the Shelter in Marietta, with some cats residing in foster homes.
