Jackson's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Jackson's Story...
Hi, my name is Jackson. I am a handsome kitty in need of a special home. My brother Milton and I came to the rescue as tiny kittens. We were born in late March 2016. We tested positive for FeLV, which is a virus that has no cure and is contagious to other cats. We can live long, normal, healthy lives. We just can't be around kitties that do not have FeLV. I am a super affectionate and friendly cat. I love people. I love being petted. I always use a litterbox like a good boy. Other than this virus, I am very healthy, happy and playful. I like kitty toys and playing with my brother. Because our situation is so special, the Rescue is waiving the adoption fee for me and my brother Milton. Our only goal is to find a safe, caring home with someone to love for life. Please help us! We are desperate! Adoption fee: WAIVED. Adopt a pair: FEE WAIVED. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 60 days of free pet insurance.

Adoption Process: Complete the application at We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jackson, a Troy 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 Troy, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy 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 Troy 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 Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
