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: Whoa Black Betty, She had 5 babies, All out in the wild And then adopted one more I am young mommy who was taken to the humane society with my 5 newborns. I have done a wonderful job raising my babies and even an orphan my human gave to me to raise. I am finished raising my babies and now need to find a loving home of my own. I love to rub my humans legs and purr, especially in the bathroom. I'm a potty petter. I am shy around other humans but not my foster human. I would like a quite home with no children. I do like the company of my foster humans cats. Maybe you could adopt me with Sarah, my last baby. I love her. I have beautiful shiny black fur which is so soft to touch. I'm soooo pretty.
