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: Winter was part of a large colony in Gibsonton (60 adults -TVNR, 16 kittens). I took in three of the 16 kittens: Sunny, Stormy, Winter. The poor babies were very weak , underweight and sick. they were just covered with fleas and ear mites. When he joined our little foster family he was pretty scared and is still on the nervous side. He had never been inside a house, seen dogs before been handled by humans. It didn't take him long to realize how wonderful life was inside! The outside world for a little kitten is very dangerous and scary. They often go with hungry tummies and have to hide to stay safe. Playing is hard to do when you have to hide but now he has lots of toys and friends. Winter and his siblings will still needs some time and patience to truly feel safe. But I know he will show his gratitude every day for being saved! As a young kitten, he will do best with another feline friend! Please contact me for more information about Winter or his foster siblings!
