The Spring Flea Market is Good Mews’ largest fundraiser during the year. Funds raised are used to provide shelter, food, and medical care to the homeless cats in the care of Good Mews at their Shelter and in foster homes. This will be the ninth year Good Mews has held a Spring Flea Market. Last year’s event raised over $75,000 for the Good Mews’ kitties.

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.
