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.

You Are Applying to Adopt...

Riley
Date of Birth: 11/13/2019
Sex: Male
Color: Black
Breed: American Shorthair
Fur: Short
  • My story: Very sweet boy who is learning to play like kittens should. Purrs very loudly when held like a baby in your arms. His fur is silky soft and he loves to be pet. He and his sister were found outside near woods at 4 months old so it makes sense that they are very hyper vigilant to their surroundings...it kept them alive. He is sensitive to loud sudden sounds around him and shy with new people. They warm up to people quickly but are shy. They are very social with myself and my 11 yr old son. They love to talk to you and rub on your legs at feeding time. They need someone that will be patient with expanding their area as they get comfortable. It won't take long and they will be running the house. They love to sleep in bed with you. Riley and Rosa are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together.

    Must be adopted with: Rosa

    Good with Cats: Yes  |   Good with Dogs: Unknown  |   Good with Children: Unknown
