Established in Tampa in 1997, St. Francis Animal Rescue is an all volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of homeless cats and dogs by providing placement in suitable, forever homes.


 Have A Home

We have some wonderful animals in our care that need a home. Please open your heart and give a deserving animal a new start on life. You too will reap benefits from your adoption because pets provide us with unconditional love and ask so little in return. Make a difference for a homeless animal today.

Whoever said "Money can't buy happiness"..... well, they obviously never paid an adoption fee for an animal!



 Where there's a will there's a way

Attorney Ken Afienko is a long time supporter and St Francis adoptive pet parent. He also proudly serves as a part-time Pinellas County Police Officer. Ken is extending his generosity to us with a unique offer. He will provide wills and living wills for supporters who donate to St Francis Rescue. It's an important service that saves families so many legal hassles at a difficult time so please take advantage of his unique offer. 100% of the donation benefits our medical fund to help sick and injured pets find new forever homes.
