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: I am the sweetest lapdog-wanna-be you haven't met yet. Despite seeing my human mom murdered, I love humans and want to trust you. I am a bit slow to trust the outdoors for walks, and I am not good with other dogs for I need to be an only dog. I would love to have a fenced in yard to run & play in!!! I make up for it though by being a cuddle bug that just wants to be close to those I love. I like toys, and I would love to sleep with my humans, but I am ok with a bed of my own on the floor. I am used to being crated when you are gone, but I am pretty good if you don't like to crate. All I want is a fur-ever home, I promise lots of kisses and warm snuggles on the couch! **Please note that we only adopt our dogs out to adopters living in the immediate Tampa Bay Area.

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