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: Merry and Bright came in on December 2, 2018 and were near to death. Found as strays in an apartment complex, malnutrition, dehydration, external and internal parasites were killing them. They were lethargic, sick and had some pretty immediate medical needs, enough so that I did not name them for over 2 weeks. It is a month later and these skeletons in fur coats, coated with filth and ready to die creatures have transformed. Medicine, grooming, more medicine, unhappy bathing time lots of food, patient companionship and letting them conquer their own fears have left us with a beautiful pair of kattens (teen kittens) who are reserved but friendly. They love food & indoor life, but they like the petting to be on their terms. They'll let you know when to pet. Merry has sea glass green eyes, a white face and big tabby splotches. Do you think you have a home that needs some Merry and Bright? If you wish to keep the holiday spirit the whole year round, they can help you with that.
