Adoptions

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 Ruthie B. Ginspurr! Just like my namesake, I'm tough! And I'm smart! And I will get done what needs to be done! I came to St. Francis from the county shelter where I had been turned in with a nasty injury to my left- rear leg. I also had- what's it called- a hernia. So I was a mess. My nice helpers at the kitty doctor decided my leg wasn't healing right- so they had to take it off. I know that sounds sad- but I was so little. I don't even remember. And ask mommy- I came home from surgery & haven't slowed down since! I got stuff to do! I like to beat up my foster brother Stubs- and some of the big kitties too. I will need a home with a very active kitty friend for me. I am shy at first with new people- but with quiet & patience & lots of kisses, I settle in. Mommy says I've been through a lot so you gots to give me some time. I've had all my surgeries & I am ready to go, go, go. Are you ready for me?????? RAWR!

    Must be adopted with: A friend!
