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 Zippy! I was loose in the 24 hr Tampa Plant Postal Service for a week! And I was so fast hiding from my adoring postal fans, peeking from racks and hampers, teasing with my cute meows. They finally caught me in a trap with yummy food. After a few wks in the bathroom I stopped being hissy, unless startled, and now adore being loved on, when I'm in a FAMILIAR room. I will absolutely be shy at first and can be 2+ wks to trust you. I purr when we play with wand toys and getting love from my human! My fur is so soft! I enjoy playing with kittys in the foster home. They give me confidence and I should have another friend in your home. Not too dominant because I don't like to be bullied! No like the 2 bouncy dogs, I hisses at them daily, too close! I may have had a run-in with a dog when I was a baby, then found alone. Zippy has a nervous personality and will startle at noises. She should be in a quiet home and start out in a small space (bathroom!) while you visit/sit/talk, no touch!

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