Thank you for your interest in adopting a cat from Mainely Mutts Animal Rescue! We ask that you please complete this application as thoroughly as possible, as the information you provide helps us match you with the right pup for your household. Potential adopters should be 21+ and reside in Maine or New Hampshire. At this time, we only adopt to Maine and New Hampshire residents. New Hampshire residents must come to Maine to complete the adoption.

Our adoption fee of $250 covers the transport fee, state-mandated inspection fees, shelter pull fees, spay/neuter costs, necessary vaccines, and any other costs that we may incur. On average, we spend a considerable amount more than the adoption fee per cat and work hard to make up the difference through fundraising.


As a rescue, we strive to be transparent at all steps of the adoption process. One of our founders would be happy to go into further detail regarding the adoption fee, timeline, application, or any questions you may have. Please email us here. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for considering a rescue cat! 

Next Step: Once you submit your application, a member of our rescue will reach out within 48 hours to confirm your submission and introduce themselves.
