Adoption Agreement

Maine Coon Adoptions is delighted you have adopted a new cat. We’re here to promote a great relationship between you and your new kitty, so we encourage you to call or email us with any questions or concerns that come up after you take your kitty home. A new environment can be very stressful for a cat, so your new kitty may react by exhibiting physical or behavioral changes at first. We strongly recommend that you quarantine your new kitty initially and take it to your vet for a “healthy kitty” exam before exposing it to other pets in your household.

Adoption Fees:

  • $160 for kittens up to one year old
  • $135 for healthy cats from one to eight years old
  • $225 for Purebred cats
  • $110 for mature cats over eight years old or special-needs cats

Pay by check or cash at no extra charge when you pick up your kitty, or pay online (where we hope you’ll check the box to cover the credit card service fee)
