Good Mews is also offering shopping opportunities to help you with your Christmas gift list this year – the Good Mews calendar and cookbook. Both items will make wonderful gifts for your friends and family (and yourself). The calendar is $20 with $10 from each purchase going to the building fund for the new shelter and the cookbook is $16.

This year's calendar features Good Mews residents enjoying "island life." Follow the kitties throughout the year as they “snorkel in the bright blue Caribbean or hang out on a veranda overlooking a lush island paradise.” The cookbook has 300 delicious recipes, all submitted by Good Mews volunteers and supporters.

The Good Mews cookbook and calendar will be available for sale at the shelter. If you don’t make it to the shelter this weekend, you can buy both the cookbook and the calendar online at the Good Mews website.

About Good Mews (from the website)

Good Mews is one of the few virtually cage-free, no-kill cat shelters in the State of Georgia. Since 1988, Good Mews has placed over 6,700 cats in permanent homes. The shelter receives no government support, relying solely on donations of time, service and money from its supporters, the public and area businesses. Good Mews is home to approximately 100 residents at any given time, most of whom live at the shelter; some also reside in foster care. Good Mews promotes public awareness regarding the value of pets, animal welfare, pet overpopulation, and quality human-animal companionship through education and outreach programs.
