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 Fergie! I'm only a year and a half old but had tough times living outside. Luckily, myself and my 6 newborn kittens were brought to St. Francis in April 2019 to live with my foster mommy. I took such great care of my babies, nursing all day and night, cleaning, and tending to my babies' needs despite being malnourished and young myself. Most of my babies have now been adopted to their furrever homes and I really want the chance to be a baby myself. To tell you a bit about me, despite being outside for over a year I'm a friendly kitty who runs up to humans for purrs and I love to brush on legs. I also play with my kitten babies because I'm really just a big baby myself. I have a minor and non-contagious condition where my left eye weeps extra when I'm stressed - I don't require any medication for this as it is entirely natural but some of my photos show my condition around my eyes and nose. My foster mommy says I'm very pretty anyway and I hope you agree!
