Rescue Spotlight: Maine Coon Rescue

Maine Coon Rescue (MCR) is a non-profit organization based in Franklin, KY.  They are staffed by a nationwide network of volunteers dedicated to rescuing Maine Coon and Maine Coon mixed cats. This rescue group works with abused, abandoned, surrendered and homeless Maine Coon cats, providing interim foster homes if necessary, with the ultimate goal of placing these cats into carefully screened, loving forever homes. They also help in other ways such as working to educate people about the breed and about responsible pet ownership, helping to provide pet transport, assist in providing appropriate medical care to the cats, and networking with other rescue groups.

If you are interested in adopting a Maine Coon cat, the Maine Coon Rescue website has resources to help educate people about the breed, an online adoption application, as well as a map which allows you to search for Maine Coon and Maine Coon mix cats and kittens available for adoption throughout the country.

If you are not able to adopt but want to help, you can volunteer to become an MCR Case Manager, provide a foster home for a cat in need, or to assist with pet transport. Maine Coon Rescue also gratefully accepts your tax-deductible monetary donation.  PetMeds was proud to help support this rescue group with a donation of pet supplies.

    Just a cautionary note based on my own experience with this group. A few years ago i fostered four cats from MCR. Two were so feral that pro groomers refused to handle them and they sprayed on all the furniture. The other two were returned for unspecified reasons by an adopter who was visibly angry when I picked them up. The one time I helped transport a cat the cage it was in was so dirty I couldn’t put in in my car and replaced it with a new one at my own expense. As a foster my home was never inspected and the cats seemed to be forgotten about once I took them. If you are thinking of adopting a cat from this group please make sure you’re getting trainable indoor cats that are clean and used to being with people.
