Cat and Kitten Adoption Application Form
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.
