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: Hi, I’m handsome boy Harper! My brother and I were born on St. Patrick’s Day so we’ll bring you the luck of the Irish. We’ve been in St. Francis’ care since we were only four days old, so humans are Mom to us, and we're especially loving and trusting. Foster mom says that is why I’m especially sweet and cuddly, even though I sometimes am initially shy with people. I love to play, play, play, but I also want to cuddle with you, and will look for you or stop playing just to be around you. Guinness and I tested a faint positive for FIV, but the vet said the test probably read our mom’s antibodies and not ours. We won’t know for sure if we are FIV positive for a few months, and while it's not uncommon for kittens to test positive at first, it is extremely rare for a kitten to actually have FIV. Please ask our foster mom for details. Guinness and I must be adopted together, and we should be the only cats in our forever home. I can’t wait to go home with you and live happily ever after!
