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 my name is Paku! I am shy at first and then quickly warm up to my human with pets. After trust has developed I come running to my human for luvins, following you everywhere. I was rescued from a good samaritans home and competing with too many cats so I was quite starved. I adore wet food and will turn on the meows and purrs when offered. My meow can be loud but adorable as I want a hug from you! I am very active and should have another kitten or playful cat in your home. I love to wrestle and chase! I am very curious and try to help when dusting or cleaning (not! Haha). I love cat trees and all toys! Foster Mama catches me nursing and kneading on a blanket for long periods of time every day, see video 7/28! She says I am such a loving sweet boy! For more pictures and videos, go to and look up Lucia Wakeman! Then do a word search for Paku.
