Support Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
Appalachian SPCA is located in Eastern Kentucky. We are a foster based rescue aiding, altering and adopting animals in need. We have transport available to the New England states and partner with many rescues.We rescue animals that find their way to high kill shelters in the southern, Appalachian area. There is an overpopulation of pets at the shelters here in the south and we work hard to save as many lives as possible.
All of our animals are kept up to date on routine immunizations, heart worm tested, spayed or neutered and free of parasites prior to adoption. We work hard to overcome any issues through positive reinforcement and basic training.
Transport is available to the New England States every week. Please ask for the schedule as these trips are scheduled with a transporter and may change. Each pet travels in a crate and is fed and given water during the trip. All pets are up to date on vaccines and travel with a Health Certificate.
By adopting a rescued pet, you will make room for us to help one more to safety and a new home.

I guess you can’t READ
2004-03-30 14:32:10 by bewareOFpenguinI said “THEY DON’T GO TO BREEDERS” Just like if you observe outside cats in New England, you will notice most are a Maine Coon Mix. The dominate trait for the area. In fact, I have rescued strays born in the wild that are basically pure bred Maine Coon Cats. No breeders involved, just like in Scotland.
“concerned about the animals health history”
2004-03-30 12:10:48 by bewareOFpenguinCats from breeders are more apt to have health problems. The street has a way of getting rid of unhealthy cats. Pure breds are more prone to genetic problems. My experience with “shelter” cats (that is to say ,cats that I PERSONALLY rescued, read on) are that they are more hardy than their pure bred counterparts. In New England, strays tend to have a larger body mass and only live 2 to 3 years on the street. Most deaths are caused by malnutrition, humans, poisoning, etc. not genetic defects. In fact, if you had “problems” with a shelter cat, the root cause of the problem is either the shelter itself or the shelter’s vet
Yes, they are dog-like

I think Persians are gorgeous, but the breathing issues scare me — my pit has an underbite and slightly ‘bulldog-ish’ nose, and I notice even she snores loudly and occasionally breathes noisily.
I started my love affair with Maines because I lived in New England and there were several breeders nearby. I used to go to a lot of cat shows and was always drawn to them. When I moved out to CA, it became harder to find them (well, a lot of rescues have cats they call Maine Coons or Maine Coon mixes, but imho they are DLH’s, as real Maines are not that common and breeders are pretty picky about making sure that non-show stock are neutered)
