Darla's Story...

Darla is candy to the eyes--like a true Maine Coon! It took some time for her to emerge after all the years of abuse and neglect she endured. Darla lived for many years in the home of a hoarder with over 100 other cats. She’s known hunger, disease and hopelessness, as she watched the weaker cats die from the harsh conditions they were forced to endure. They would have all perished, but SpayMart decided to do a rescue. All 100 came to live at the sanctuary. It was a very different life. Fresh food and water, clean bedding, kind words, and lots of human contact. Darla and her friends began a transformation, physically as well as psychologically. Dull eyes became bright, matted coats became silky, suspicion became trust, and lethargy became playfulness. The transformation was amazing to watch. And Darla was no exception. Her frame filled out and her coat grew long and luxuriously. She turned into a true beauty inside and out. Now the time is right for her to leave the sanctuary and start a new beginning and new life of her own. She’d like to share it with someone special because she’s special.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Darla, a Metairie 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 Metairie, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Metairie.

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