100% of the proceeds benefit Good Mews, a local non-profit organization, which operates a volunteer-based, no-kill shelter for homeless, abused and abandoned cats. Located at 736 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta, GA, the shelter provides a cage-free environment for its residents, offering them comfort and security while adoption programs find them happy, loving homes. Good Mews has a strong commitment to the practice of spaying and neutering as the most important step in reducing the pet overpopulation problem. They also promote public awareness regarding the value of pets, animal welfare, and quality human-animal companionship through educational and outreach programs.

This year’s Boxerstock features a Kids’ Village with fun activities for children, including the human hamster balls from Water Walkers, inflatables, and a second stage for kid-friendly entertainment and music from some of Georgia’s finest up and coming young artists.
