Maine Coon Kittens are so fluffy and cute it’s easy to understand why they have become so popular especially if they can be adopted for free. Unfortunately there are very few places around that will specifically shelter Main Coon cats but most places may have mixed or free main coon cats available among many other breeds you may look at.
As is sometimes normal when seeking to adopt a Maine Coon Kitten for free some local shelters and adoption centers ask that you pay small fee to help them keep running but this is a small price to pay when you finally find a real Maine Coon with a great personality and traits.
Most the free Maine Coon cats you will find in shelters have been sadly abandoned by a previous owner so this will make it more difficult to tell if you are dealing with a pure bred Maine Coon kitten or not so be sure to do the research and In the end go with the aim of re-homing on of the cats to a loving family as this is most important.
Please find below a few places where to find free Maine Coon Kittens:
Check Online for free Maine Coons
Probably the easiest most hassle free way to find free Maine Coon Kittens is to check online to see websites or owners listing them for adoption in your area. This way you get to first have a look or request an image of the kitten or cat and do your research talking to the owner without having to commit to a viewing.
Check with local shelters
Once you’ve done some research on what to look for in your Maine Coon Kitten it’s a good sign you are ready to take a look at the cats at your local shelter. Shelter workers are not always experts on the cats or their breeds so it’s important to know how to spot a Maine Coon Kitten or Cat.
Some people say finding a pure bred Maine Coon kitten for free in a shelter can be ‘rare’ but you would be surprised how many can be housed their waiting to be given a loving home.
Check With Breeders and Organizations Related To The Maine Coon Breed
There may in some cases be an opportunity to get free Maine Coon cats directly from a breeder for free normally due to them being overpopulated or having a large litter of kittens that require re-homing.
It’s a good idea to keep checking in with local breeders and leave your contact details with them so they may contact you if such an opportunity arises.
Keep Your Options Open
Due to where you are living it may sometimes be very difficult to find free Maine Coon kittens but this does not mean you have to give up entirely. There is a growing likelihood that you would be able to find an older Maine Coon cat to adopt which can give you just as much love and affection as a kitten.
The goal should always be to make the Cat you re-home happy and put them in a loving environment. Always keep in mind that ‘free’ may not always be the case when it comes to adoption but will be a much lower cost than buying a pure bred Maine Coon kitten directly from a certified breeder.
