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: Hello, my name is Golden Rod and I want to tell you the story of my rescue. It was late one evening and two foster mommies were hungry. They decided to go through a drive-thru at a new restaurant. When they started to order food they heard some crying. At first they thought maybe they were hearing things, it was so late at night. One Foster mommies got out of the car in the drive thru line to try and find the crying. She got out and started meowing and I ran right up to her! I was only 5 weeks old, very scared and hungry, and my eyes were very congested. They guessed that I had probably hitched a ride up inside of an engine and found myself lost at the restaurant. They took me home, and gave me a bath, and cleaned out my eyes. I was a very healthy and happy little guy! I love everyone and everything. I am very playful and have a silly sideways jump when I am having fun. Find more about me on Instagram at turtlecatfoster.
