Dewey Courtesy Post's Story...

Dewey is a 2 year old Maine Coon mix who came to the Jersey Shore Animal Center in March 2014,  after he was found fending for himself out in the cold with no place to call his own.  Dewey is stunningly handsome with his tuxedo-colored coat and has a big, outgoing personality.  The staff and volunteers at the shelter quickly fell in love with this sweet, energetic, inquisitive, take-charge fellow and made Dewey one of the resident cats at the shelter.  Dewey has enjoyed his time there, hanging out with other kitty friends, lounging in the lobby, stretching out on top of the desk, and retiring to the executive offices to help with important shelter business. 


Unfortunately for Dewey, the shelter has gone through some changes and Dewey is now alone overnight and on the weekends, except when a caretaker comes at feeding time.  The staff loves him too much to let him be alone so much of the time and wants nothing more than for him to go to a wonderful forever home where he will be surrounded by the people he loves day and night. 


Being a young and energetic boy, Dewey would particularly enjoy a family who will allow him to run and play, and engage him with lots of fun wand toys for some great interactive playtime.  Dewey gets along just fine with the other cats, though would prefer a home with no dogs unless they are super gentle and would give him his space. 


When Dewey arrived at the shelter, it was discovered that he has a food allergy, which is being successfully controlled with a special diet, along with lysine tablets.  Dewey’s new family will need to be committed to providing for his special dietary needs. Kids 12+ are ok!


Dewey is neutered, up-to-date on his vaccinations, and has tested negative for FeLV/FIV.  He is also microchipped and has perfect litter box manners.

Dewey is located in Brick, NJ, at the Jersey Shore Animal Center. If you are interested in adopting him, please contact his caregiver, Ms. McLachlan, at , or call 732-920-1600 from 10:00am to 4:00pm.  Dewey’s caregiver can help with transportation up to 100 miles.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dewey Courtesy Post, a Absecon Maine Coon cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Absecon, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Absecon.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Absecon already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Absecon breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Absecon paves the way for another one to be saved.
