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 Everyone! I'm Mowgli. I'm almost identical to my brother Baloo, but you can tell me apart from the white tip of my tail:) My four siblings and I were orphaned when we were three weeks old. Someone brought us to the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center, but they didn't have room and told us that we would have to be fostered by someone else that day.... St. Francis stepped up and we are so happy now. I rush to the door every time my foster human comes to play with us and we just purr and purr and purr. I tested positive for FIV, but my other littermates all tested negative, so we will check again in a few months. Until, I'm checked out again, I should probably be a single kitty for a while, which is a shame because I love all dogs and kitties. Even with FIV, I can live a long healthy life and provide you so much fun and companionship. I'm very healthy and active- PROMISE! I can't wait to meet you- I promise to purr all over your lap.
