Cat adoption
Silly owl
ann_mcn wrote in atlanta

My old cat died a couple of weeks ago, and now I'm ready to adopt again. Any suggestions on good no kill shelters?

I'd heard good things about Paws Atlanta, but their website looks like they don't have cats anymore. There's no email contact info, and the phone just goes to an endless round of voice mail speeches.

I'm so sorry about your kitty : (

I second Furkids - I volunteer there and it's a fabulous organization!

Paws always has cats they just don't always have a good webmaster. Just show up.

I highly recommend Good Mews, a no-kill, no-cage cat shelter! I adopted two great kitties from there.

I second Good Mews - got my kitty from them 14 years ago. Great organization.

Third! I have a kitty from there and she's great

Thirded! I've been a volunteer there for the past 6 years. AND having been in just this past weekend, I can vouch that there are some real lookers and lovers waiting on their forever families!

Also, is pretty excellent.

I can't recommend Good Mews enough. They're a no kill, no cage facility and everyone there is awesome. It's also great because the majority of the cats there are very well socialized and get along great with other cats since it's no cage and all.

Thank you all! Those are the same ones I'd found in web searching, and it's good to know that they are all good to deal with. I've always had cats choose me, or be rescued through friends, so this is a new experience.

Two dear (but non-LJ) friend swears by Good Mews, as well.

I got my cat from the Humane Society ... they were re-doing their cat section at the time (2+ years ago) and all the cats were kinda jammed into a back room and hallway and the staff wasn't very helpful for a first time cat adopter, but after visiting week after week I found a cat that was love-at-first-sight.
