🐾😽 AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION THRU MAARC 😽🐾

Say meow to Charleston, who goes by Charlie now that we know she’s a girl. Out of all the “Carolina” kittens, Charlie is the most outgoing and curious and tends to be in the middle of the catnap pile-up like a stand-in mom. If you’re interested in adopting Charlie, you can fill out an application on our website at www.maarcadopt.org to get the yarn ball rolling. You can also email us at [email protected] or contact Stephanie at (908) 331-0462 to set up a meet and greet.

My adoption fee is only $25 if I’m adopted during the Clear the Shelters adoption campaign.

🐾💗 AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION THRU MAARC 💗🐾

Okay, so let me set the record straight. I didn’t pick my name. Yeah, I’m a tuxedo cat with 4 white paws so it was an obvious choice. Personally, I’d prefer to be called something more majestic and ladylike...Daphne, or Brigitte, or Sacajawea. Tell you what; if you adopt me you can call me anything you like cuz I really want to get out of this place. They treat me nice here, food is fairly good and the housekeeping staff is really top notch. But I’m still reeling from losing my home and really want to find a new one where I can own...er, live with someone who’ll love me even when I get a little ornery. I may even become a lap cat if the right lap comes along. I’m willing to give us a try. Are you? Call Stephanie at 908-331-0462 or apply online at www.maarcadopt.org/adopt.

Abraham Lincoln was a “crazy cat lady.” He regularly took in strays at the White House and was gifted 2 kittens, Tabby and Dixie, by a cabinet member. He was so in love with the duo that he fed Tabby under the table at a state dinner once and was heard exclaiming “Dixie is smarter than my whole cabinet, and furthermore she doesn’t talk back!”

Oh, hey. I mean, oh meow. My name is Levi and my caretakers think I’m one of those Norwegian Forest Cats cuz I’m super fluffy right down to my toes. I don’t think I’m from Norway tho, or came here on a Viking ship. Then again, I’m not sure what happened. One day I was living with this nice lady and next I’m in this little chamber. That would make anyone a tad grumpy, especially a guy that’s (ehem) a little more mature. If you want to come rescue me, make sure you have a brush handy cuz I have a hard time brushing myself without thumbs. Just fill out an application at www.maarcadopt.org or contact Stephanie at (908) 331-0462 or email [email protected] to set up a meet & greet!

🐾💗 AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION THRU MAARC 🐾💗

Miss Ava is not kidding around when it comes to snuggles, she enjoys two good walks a day and is totally ready to snuggle up with a person afterwards. She is equal parts loving and energetic. Ava enjoys watching Hulu in her downtime and would make an excellent date for a late afternoon walk in the Smokey Mountains. Ava is not particular in the human company she keeps, any warm body will do. She is slightly more discerning with the dog company she keeps though. She’s going to be happiest being her persons one and only doggy love. If you have what it takes to make Ava happy (a warm body and a hulu subscription) call or text Al at 855-221-5767 or Lisa at 865-310-2599, or apply online at www.maarcadopt.org/apply.

Smoky is not a very original name for a grayish cat, but I don’t mind sharing a name with these gorgeous mountains around us.

😺💗 AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION THRU MAARC 💗😺

Hi lovelies! My name is Dahlia, and I won the 2021 Cat Mom of the Year award here at MAARC. See I had my own litter of kitties that I raised really well, and then shortly after they moved out of the cat box I took in a few foster babies that didn’t have a momma. I loved and cared for them like they were my own. Now I’ve been spayed so no more babies for me. I’m looking at some possible new adventures now, perhaps I should recreate myself. They say you should recreate yourself all the time. Maybe I could be a diva kitty with a diamond stud collar and pink claw tips? Or I could join a political resistance group? Nahh, that was so 2020. I could just take some time off and be a lazy house kitty. I hear that reality shows are all the rage these days. Are there any for bachelorette cats? Men cats aren’t really the hooking up type though, they are more of the one night stand.. with a new puss, erm kitty, every night. Anyways are you recreating yourself? Would you like a bestie? We can both start fresh together! That actually sounds fantastic. Call or text Stephanie at 908-331-0462 or apply online at www.maarcadopt.org/adopt.

We have Barn Cats available!

Sometimes the cats that arrive in the shelter are feral. They love food and water, but could care less about making friends with humans. No snuggles, no under the chin or behind the ear scratches; they have no need for that. But what they do love is living life outside on their terms! If you live in the county and have a barn, shed or other structure, or have a mouse problem, we have the cats for the job! They are more than qualified to handle all of your mousing and barn needs! Please call the MAARC office at 865-273-3751 for information and availability of barn cats!🐱🐈🐱

Beyond a Happy Tail…

Rescue is never easy, and it breaks our hearts in two on a fairly regular basis. But there are moments that give us strength and reminds us why we do what we do. Those moments keep us going. One of those moments was when Laura, a Deaf Studies major at Maryville College, decided she wanted to adopt our deaf boy Lenny. We set them up with some training to help insure they got off on the right foot. We received this message from Laura this morning. Lenny’s new name is Blue.

“He is truly so joyful and happy and just struts around like he is on top of the world it makes me so happy and proud to be his mom. Thank you for everything. This process and blue have absolutely changed my life. I may have rescued him but he has rescued me in more ways I can even explain.
I am his ears and structure and he is my confidence and courage. 💙
I gained assertiveness and the power to control and be the boss. But to be loving at the same time. It's an amazing feeling. I'm truly blessed. And it's all thanks to you and the shelter. I can't thank you enough. Truly life changing.”

Our hearts are full today. Thank you Laura! 💗

Many thanks to Jamie with Dog Wizard for her part in this successful match!

The MAARC Mission

Maryville / Alcoa Animal Rescue Center, (MAARC) is an all volunteer animal rescue group. Our mission is to rescue animals in danger of being euthanized in our local shelter, with a purpose of creating a safe, no kill community and eventually advancing animal welfare for animals in surrounding county shelters or beyond.

MAARC is extremely fortunate to partner with the Maryville City Shelter. The shelter staff and animal control officers work cohesively with our group to get animals adopted directly from the shelter.

Our page and any other social media avenue, is a critical piece of finding our animals permanent homes or foster homes. Look for us in the near future on petfinder.com and other adoption websites.

Visit our website at www.maarc-adopt.org, and please like our social media pages, which include, Instagram and Twitter, share the animals, and stay tuned for current and future events!

My mom's cat went missing on 8/22 in the John Sevier area of Maryville. He always roams the neighborhood but has never not come home! My mom is heartbroken. He's a very large grey fluffy cat who loves people and likes to talk. Please help if you can! Thank you so much.
Gotcha-Day for our lil Lorien (fka, Laurel)!! Adopted from MAARC August 24, 2019. ❤🐾 She is her mama's kitty still and sleeps with me at night. Lorien loves zip ties, hair ties, belly rubs, & bird watching.

This is very important! Every dog and cat owner needs to watch this video. You'll be shocked to see just how much undercoat this cat loses once it's been groomed properly. I've owned cats and dogs all my life but had no idea how important it was to "de-shed" your animals. Just look at all that fur that is ending up in your home, in your lungs, and in the poor pet's stomach when grooming themselves. I have done some research on the best brands of de-shedding tools to groom your pet, and have found that the "FURminator" brand undercoat de-shedding tools have the best reviews. I just ordered one off of eBay for $13.99. Please share this information with all your pet owner friends. You're welcome. lol
