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 my name is Axel! I love to climb, play with toys and play with my brother Cain! Initially I was more shy than my bro but now we are equal. I rub my scent on my foster human, purr during petting, and seek out my human when on the couch watching TV for snuggles and then I give lots of kisses! I'll try and kiss the big dog too if she's in a calm mood. I tolerate being picked up a short time but give my love best when my humans on the couch. Foster mama laughs at me cuz I growl at my favorite toy that I go nuts for and at my brother too, see video. It's called the Cat Dancer. I am quite the acrobat, more so than my brother who's a bit lazy, hehe. That's OK mine all mine my precious! I do love other wand toys too and thrive when my human plays with me. We enjoy our morning/evening wet food treats and being free fed with cat feeders. We were captured as strays a week apart, me last. I'm behind my brother in the pics when we were around 4 months old, aren't I gorgeous!
