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: Keke is a beautiful Manx with a short tail. She befriended a sweet couple and their male cat in Tampa from the other side of their screen pool for several weeks. They fed her in the mornings/evenings and she was friendly to them, allowing small pets. It took 2 hours to catch her once lured inside the lanai, fell in the pool twice, oh my gosh, and is now in her captors foster home. After 3 days in the bathroom she loves on her human adoringly. She loves being in her humans lap with hugs, and strong head bumps. After a week she moved to her own room and has met other dogs, cats and foster kittens with supervised socializing. She is now free roaming and playing with the others. Shes very friendly with some warning hisses when she needs space. See new video 4/21 Easter morning! Update 5/13/19 Keke loves to follow her human around and give lotsa kisses when on the couch and make bisquits. She makes the cutest chirp sounds and loves to chat.

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