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: Our little Laila has quite a big story. St. Francis got a call from a good samaritan out in Dade City, saying a pregnant mama had wondered up to her house, very hungry and scared. The good samaritan was already feeding several stray cats and also owned several big, scary dogs, but Laila needed help, so she gave her some food. A few days later, Laila gave birth to 4 tiny kittens behind the storage shed outside. One unfortunately didn't make it, but Laila managed to keep 3 alive, despite the threats from the big dogs and dirty, wet living conditions. When they were about 5 days old, a stray male cat wondered by, intent on killing Laila's babies. She had to fight him to keep her family safe, and that's when the good samaritan, fearing for her safety, reached out to St. Francis for help. We took them in, and now Laila is more of a lover than a fighter! She's very playful and talkative, and wants lots of affection. Could this amazing mama be your baby?
