Good news for Mews

House of Mews received a new lease on life after its benefactor was purchased by an out-of-town company.

Service Assurance, a Memphis-based IT support and management company, adopted the no-kill cat shelter on Cooper Street in 2010, after founder Elain Harvey considered selling her house to keep the facility afloat. That partnership faced an uncertain future when Service Assurance was purchased recently by All Covered, a division of New Jersey-based Konica Minolta.

But the new company has assured House of Mews that it will keep on purring, announcing that it will provide $1,000 a month to cov er the shelter’s rent indefinitely. Harvey thanked Mark Giannini and Kelli Mitchell of Service Assurance for their commitment to the nonprofit, which has rescued some 9,000 cats over the past 17 years.

House of Mews, at 933 S. Cooper St., currently has about 120 cats available for adoption. Learn more at
