  1. Just a note that as of October 1st, Good Mews is open for adoptions at the shelter on all Saturdays, only the first & third Sunday of each month and by appointment on weekdays. Off-site adoption hours and locations remain the same.

    Also, they have a reduced adoption fee for black cats & kittens in October as well as a “two for one” special through the end of the year.

  2. I rescued 4 baby kittens 3 weeks ago. I do not know how old they are. The mother a feral cat left them on our patio. (we feed the feral cats regularly). We first fed them with the bottle, the a week ago we mixed soft canned food with the milk and fed for one week and now have introduced dry food mixed in milk. They are healthy and happy BUT…I cannot keep them and cannot afford to get them wormed and shots.
    Please tell me if you can take them or suggest an alternative.

  3. We took in a stray cat in our neighborhood. Shortly after we realized she was pregnant. We now have 5 kittens and are unable to keep them. I called you guys because of hearing such great things but the message said you are filled to capacity. I don’t want to take them to the pound….please offer us some advice on what to do with these babies. They are now 8 weeks old.

    Thank you,


    • I live down in Montezuma and what we do around here (mainly because the closest shelters are up in Warner Robins, Macon, or down in Americus, and a couple of those places outright will NOT take in any animals that are not directly from within those city limits), we put up fliers in the grocery store and at the vet hospital with pictures of the kittens, tear away strips of paper with contact information, etc. and it rarely takes long at all for people to adopt them. (Because, really, kittens are so darned cute, how can anyone resist?!)
      (Though, as an added bonus, even if it might be a bit extra work for you, get the kittens all fixed and get them all of their basic kitten shots against rabies, feline HIV, etc. If they’re all taken care of, had all of their shots, and are vet approved healthy, they will get adopted very fast. Also, don’t be afraid to advertise a little outside of your hometown (like in local grocery stores or vet clinics) in places where you know fellow pet lovers will go. No where huge but just somewhere it’ll catch people’s eye. Practally guaranteed those little ones will go to good homes.)
      And, though it may be a bit much to some, darn if it doesn’t make them irresistable, make a facebook page just for the kittens and put a bunch of pictures of the kittens there showing the individual kittens, the personality traits you’ve noticed, the favorite toys they play with, any noticed allergies, etc.

      I’ve had to sit through trying to adopt out 4 litters of kittens in the past, and take it from me, getting the word out only helps your cause, especially if the little ones are already fixed and had their kitten shots. (The ones already taken care of like that go like hot cakes.)

      Best of luck with your kittens and here’s hoping they all find loving, welcoming homes soon! <3

  4. Yes I took a momma cat in from the neighborhood while she was pregnant she has four kittens they are five weeks now . I was wondering how to go about on getting them to a shelter so they can get good homes. I think her milk is making them sick. I have whined them off a little but there isn’t much I can do.
