The Spring Flea Market benefits Good Mews Animal Foundation, 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 cagefree environment for its residents, offering them comfort and security while assertive 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. Good Mews also promotes public awareness regarding the value of pets, animal welfare and quality human-animal companionship through educational and outreach programs.
