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: Ace is a 5 year old boy...was originally adopted by a nice family with 2 little boys in March of this year. They just had to return him as the Mom is in ill health and they could no longer take care of Ace. Ace originally had a Dad...but his Dad said he really didn't have time for him anymore...and tried to give me away. Luckily someone got in touch with St. Francis and got me into their rescue program and Fostered me! I am house and crate trained, know how to sit, stay and shake! I have a fluffy coat and tail and a long they believe I am a German Shepherd and Collie mix. I like kids, other dogs and cats...but unfortunately I have started humping other dogs (which is a dominance issue)⁰ it would be better if he was an only dog. It would also be best if i were in a house...since i bark when you i really want to go with you! So please help hook a guy up...I want someone who has time for me and will always love me!!!
