OMC! (Only Maine Coons Rescue) is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. We are a 100% volunteer-run/breed-specific rescue group that specializes in the Maine Coon Cat breed. We rescue Maine Coon Cat / Kitten mixes from shelters and unwanted situations. On occasion, we rescue purebred (PB) Maine Coon Cat / Kitten(s). This means that they have papers registering them as a purebred cat. In addition all of our cats are lovingly cared for in Foster homes until they are placed into their “furrever” homes.

Although we cannot guarantee the percentage of Maine Coon in each cat that we rescue. Be assured that each “Coonie” cat represents the breed in a satisfactory manner. Please take a look at the Maine Coon cats in need of a “furrever” home by clicking on this link: Available Cats.

In order to start the adoption process, please fill out an Adoption Application by clicking on this link Adoption Application.

We are a close-knit group who all work together to make adoptions happen as quickly as possible, and to ensure a happy ending for the coonie and the new adopter.




The Maine Coon Cat:

One of the oldest natural breeds in North America, the Maine Coon cat is known as the “Gentle Giant” of cats. Maine Coons or “Coonies” as they are affectionately called are tall, muscular, big-boned cats. Males commonly reach 13 to 18 pounds, with females normally weighing about 9 to 12 pounds. Add to that two or three inches of winter coat, and you have one big looker on your hands! With a splendid long coat, a large ruff, big tufted ears, giant mitts (many coonies are polydactyl), and a glorious bushy plumed tail that is the trademark of the Maine Coon, you have a stunning cat.

Maine Coons develop slowly, and don't achieve their full size until they are three to five years old. Their dispositions remain kittenish throughout their lives. They are big, gentle, good-natured goofs, and love to play. They have a distinctive, chirping trill instead of the typical meow, and are super smart. They make wonderful companions and love to hang out with their owners, investigating what you are doing and helping out if they can! Maine Coons are relaxed and easygoing, with males more clownish than females, who retain a bit more dignity! They generally get along well with kids and dogs, as well as other cats. Often dog-like, these cats suit most any household, and will become a beloved family member at the speed of light!



OMC! (Only Maine Coons Rescue) is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that relies on donations from the public. We welcome donations, and 100% of all monies raised go to the well-being of the Maine Coons. Some of the expenses that go along with saving Maine Coons are: vetting costs (i.e. shots, Spay/Neuter costs, and any needed medicines), pull fees (this is what shelters charge our rescue to remove a cat from the shelter), food, and litter.
