Facts about Ashanti

  • Breed: Maine Coon
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Long
Ashanti is a 3 year old domestic long hair Maine Coon mix cat with a beautiful torti coat. She is absolutely stunning in person; pictures just don't do her justice! She is super sweet and loves to give as much love as she possibly can to anyone who pets her! However, she does not like to be picked up. She will give a growl and let you know that she would rather move on her own terms. She will, however, push her head into your hands when you pet her. Ashanti doesn't mind other animals, as long as they give her space.

Don't let her big fluffy coat fool you, she actually weighs only 7 pounds so she is rather small despite how fluffy her coat is. Please fill out an application, so you can come and meet this beautiful girl today!
Ashanti's adoption fee is $50.00. She is spayed and UTD on vaccines.

Please visit for foster and adoption applications or for additional information.

All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have.

Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heartworm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption.

Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE!

About Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals in rural areas, mainly in 'pounds' and shelters, both high-kill and no-kill. There tends to be a higher overpopulation rate in rural areas due to lack of animal ordinances and alteration to prevent unwanted litters. Many animals are 'dumped' on country roads left to parish or end up at the local pound or animal shelter if they have an empty kennel. Many of these animals have a limited number of days before they are euthanized. In addition to placing animals in foster and adoptive homes, networking with rescues to assist in placement and adoption of animals, RARE also performs fundraisers for spay/neuters and other vetting to prevent further overpopulation and promote quality of life for the animals we save.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees cover all vetting for the animals in our care, including vaccinations, Heart-worm test, Heart-worm treatment if needed, Feline Leukemia test, spay/neuter and may vary, depending on species.

Fosters and Adopters will be required to complete an application with personal and Veterinary references. A home visit is also required.
RESCUES, please contact us regarding pull information or pull fee, if any, depending on vetting already provided by RARE.
