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.

Dahlia aka Dolla
Date of Birth: 11/01/2016
Sex: Female
Color: Black & White
Breed: Boston Terrier (Mix)
Weight: 45 lbs
Fur: Short
  • My story: Dahlia was living in a hollowed-out tree after Hurricane Irma & St. Francis was contacted by one of the concerned neighbors. She was injured and very hard to catch...even evaded a Animal Control Officer! But a dedicated St. Francis volunteer and the neighbor kept leaving her food to gain her trust. It took them 2.5 months to get her & they took me to get medical help and I was covered in scars. I was fixed & microchipped & I had been adopted earlier in 2017 from PRC and my adopter said that they were going to return me but I escaped. I am the sweetest kind of wimp and I am a little timid at first. My foster mom brought me home...took her 3 months to get me out of her closet without hurting myself. Over the last year I learned to trust humans a lot more, & now I have a new foster mommy and daddy that I am learning to love too! I am ready for a forever home! I love other dogs, I chase cats a bit, but not to hurt them...I want to play!! I need someone who will be patient & love me!

    Good with Cats: Yes  |   Good with Dogs: Yes  |   Good with Children: No Small Children
