HART of Maine Cat (over 6 mos old) Adoption Application

WELCOME TO THE HOMELESS ANIMAL RESCUE TEAM OF MAINE (HART OF MAINE) SHELTER & ADOPTION CENTER

We are glad you have come to adopt a new cat or kitten from our shelter or one of our foster homes. For their health and safety, we adopt our cats and kittens to INDOOR ONLY HOMES.

An approved application is currently required to adopt a HART cat or kitten. After approval you can either join us for one of our open adoption hour days or you can make an appointment with one of our adoption team members..


The cats available for adoption come to HART after being surrendered by owners, as strays, and transfers from other rescue organizations, both within the state of Maine and outside of the state. All of our cats and kittens are examined upon entry and their health is routinely monitored while at the shelter or in their foster homes, but there is always a chance that an animal is incubating a disease without showing any clinical signs.

The adoption fee includes: spay/neuter, first series of vaccinations, feline leukemia/FIV/Heartworm testing, worming medications for round, hook and tape worms and any needed medication and surgical procedures, a registered microchip, and our seven-day health guarantee.

  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Have identification showing your present address and age
  • If renting, you must have the knowledge and consent of your landlord. We will contact your landlord or property management company to confirm this.
  • Any cats currently in your home must be spayed or neutered and be current on vaccines. We will contact your vet to confirm this information..
  • Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment and proper care for your adopted cat
  • Agree to keep your cat indoors
