Please fill out this Adoption Application and submit it. The form will be carefully reviewed by an adoption counsellor. We try to get applications reviewed as quickly as possible. If we have problems contacting your references, this will delay the process. Most disapprovals result either from a negative veterinary reference, a "no pets" policy by landlords, or a difference in philosophy regarding the treatment of animals.

Once this application is approved, you can arrange to pick up your new pet. You will receive a copy of the pets health record and a packet of information put together especially for you and your new pet by one of our volunteers.

* St. Francis Society is a privately owned, all volunteer organization. It is our responsibility to find permanent loving homes for all the animals under our care. We will be happy to work with you to choose an animal that suits your wants and lifestyle; however we DO have adoption guidelines and may deny an adoption we feel is unsuitable. Our volunteers have the right to deny any adoption based on their own judgment.

    My story: Hi, I'm Bristol! I have overcome many challenges in my short life. My foster mommy sayz i'm a survivor and a have huge love for life! I waz found without a mommy at only 1 week old and came to St. Francis to be bottle fed. As i first started eating on my own, my foster mommy noticed some quirks with my eating and that I was not gaining weight like i should. I went to the kitty doctor and they said i have something called Megaesophagus. It means my esophagus was shaped differently than normal and that was why I was having a hard time gaining weight. But don't be scared of my condition! My only special needs are I can only eat wet cat-food, and need Pepcid each day. I'm a super sweet girl and promise bring you lots of love and happiness if you'll just give me the chance ❤️
