Good Mews Strut Your Mutt Day

Group Walk: 9 a.m. | Outdoor Market: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. 

This year, our ‘strut’ will be in form of a group walk, starting at Good Mews to East Cobb Park, and then back to Good Mews. The walk will begin at 9 a.m.
Once back at the shelter, we will have an outdoor market (book sale, bake sale and merchandise sale) taking place, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Group Walk
If you are planning to participate in the group walk, please be sure to be at the shelter a few minutes early so that you are ready to start the walk at 9 a.m. The walk to East Cobb Park is under a mile, and comfortable walking shoes/attire is recommended. Good Mews t-shirts & hats are encouraged!
