The first step in the process of adopting a cat/kitten(s) from OMC! (Only
Maine Coons Rescue) is to complete this Adoption Application. We will
use the information from the application to determine if the adoption
is in the cat/kitten's best interest. This process ensures that you will
find a cat/kitten(s) that is well suited to your lifestyle.
Please provide detailed information for all questions.
All of our cats come fully vetted for their age. Standard adoption vetting
will included: testing for FeLV/FIV, 2 distemper shots, rabies shot (
will vary depending on age), ear mite check, fecal check, spay/neuter
( depending on cats age) Health Certificate if adopting out of state and
required for transport purposes. OMC requires a prepaid spay/neuter agreement
if the cat is not altered before adoption. Your adoption coordinator will
explain the entire adoption process to you.
Please note that kittens under the age of 7 months must be adopted into
a home with an existing cat or in pairs. Our adoption policy requires
that an adopter have a cat already in the home, or that they adopt 2
cats from our group when choosing a kitten under the age of 7 months.
Please complete ALL fields below. If they do not apply, type "Does
Not Apply" in the space. Empty fields will only delay the processing
of your application. Thank You!
