Please FILL OUT ALL FIELDS in 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: Teddy is a lover, not a fighter- and he has the scars to prove it! This sweet boy was dumped into a feral colony. He did okay there for several years. He made friends (and loved all the yummy treats employees brought him!) and earned his name due to his cuddly Teddy bear nature. He is very loved by his former caretakers, but it is time for Teddy to leave behind life in a parking lot and spend his golden years living the good life inside. We don't know what happened, but Teddy was found one morning with serious trauma to his face. His left eye had been punctured and he lost several teeth on that side. Our vet was able to save his eye- but it is non-visual. Teddy has been an amazing patient. This gentle soul just wants to curl up in your lap. Teddy is all healed up- and as you can see, he is still so handsome. His life on the outside has also left him FIV +. Teddy can live a long, healthy life with FIV. He has healed wonderfully from his accident and he is ready for his forever home!
