PEDIGREE/REGISTERED Maine Coons: A Maine Coon that has documentation to prove their parentage.
Cats that do not have clear documentation of their parentage are not represented by this Organization as "Maine Coons". They will be presented as either Maine Coon Mix or Maine Coon/DLH Mix.
Maine Coon Mix: In the absence of clear documentation and/or first-hand knowledge of the origin of all cats listed on the MCR Website, Maine Coon Rescue mailing list, Maine Coon Rescue Petfinder Site - determination of origin of these cats must be made based on their appearance and personality. Appearance and personality are determined by validation of our Regional Directors (RD) and Regional Case Managers (RCM). The cat's appearance will either clearly match the breed standard, or will be based upon the presence of physical characteristics and personality traits that are shared by purebred Maine Coon cats.
NETWORKING: Our rescue volunteers share information with each other about Maine Coons, Maine Coon Mix cats requiring rescue, as well as information regarding potential adopters and other volunteers, in an effort to utilize all available resources and network.
