A PET IS FOR LIFE -    THINK ABOUT THE INVESTMENT!
 
MARTIN was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where cats often have only 3 days to be saved. MARTIN is neutered rabies, core vaccines, HCPCH, FeLV/FIV negative for all. He is de-wormed, monthly preventatives and microchipped. At the time of rescue in the middle of January 2021, he weighed around 3.50 pounds and has an estimated date of birth 1 October 2020   . We cannot say for sure what breed he is, so we expect families to do their own research on her look and size and decide what breed you think he is and if you have the lifestyle suitable for his needs.
 
At the shelter Martin was diagnosed with Ringworm, however, received treatment and has been given the "all-clear" by the shelter veterinarian.
 
ALL our cats have their claws and you must agree in our adoption contract to NEVER declaw your cats, this is a cruel, painful and disgusting surgery. Ensure your cat has scratch towers and teach him/her not to scratch anywhere else. If you are not willing to take on this task and understand your furniture "may" get scratched do NOT adopt a cat.
 
MARTIN is due to arrive at the rescue in Sebec, Maine on 16th January 2021 and until that time we only have the shelter picture and no information other than what has been provided. We will update with new pictures, video's and a bio as and when time permits, but priority is always given to getting the 8 kittens and 32 new dogs settled and on the admin side to processing submitted applications.
 
More pictures and possible video's can be found on her page on the rescue website.
 
All cats are litterbox trained, and live with other kittens and cats. Cats have been kept indoors whilst at the rescue, however, we encourage families to build/but cat condo's so that they can go outside in a safe environment and enjoy the fresh air. It is important that cats get mental stimulation and plenty of exercise, cat tree's, wall shelves and being given the ability to run, jump and climb, play with interactive toys is important for your cat to lead a healthy, active, stimulating life.
 
You MUST understand that cats need time to decompress and adapt to their new environment and home. It is a HUGE transition they make from the kill shelter, being vetted, on transport for 3 days and arriving in Maine where the temperature and such is very different to what they have only known. In rescue there is what is known as the "3 Point Rule" Days 1-3 your cat is stressed, anxious, confused as to where they are now. Weeks 1-3 your cat is adjusting, settling in, learning things. At the 3 month point, your cat understands they are home, and have built up a trusting relationship where they feel loved and secure.
 
All cats are fed Rachael Ray Nutrish PEAK wet and dry food, Woodland Catch Recipe with chicken, trout and salmon.
 
MARTIN is available for adoption for an adoption fee of $150
 
This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food, general day to day cost of running a brick and mortar rescue and anything else that is needed. Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada.
 
Due to borders being closed, it is up to families to call the US and Canadian borders to find the current details on border crossing. Animal Welfare is deemed essential in the US, but quarantine rules entering back into Canada must be followed.
 
If you feel that you have the heart and home to give this precious soul a wonderful life, please go to our website, under the ADOPTION INFO tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 1-2 days, and ensuring your references are aware that we will be calling, could speed up the process. Once you have been approved, we discuss any questions in regards to the dog you are wanting to adopt, then you complete and submit the contract, make payment and then we can work out the pick up / transport arrangements.
 
Please do NOT submit an application if you are not looking to take home a new best friend within the next few weeks.
