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: I was found walking around aimlessly in a trailer park known for having cats dumped off. I was not well- I was named Houdini for all of the escapes I made out of my crate when I was getting better!!! For a while my foster mom thought I may be deaf. Turns out I just have selective hearing. I steal things too - makeup brushes, straws, whatever. Your things disappear just like magic. I have a very big vibrant personality. I’m a complete love - I like to cuddle and want to be the center of your universe. I do have a liittle bit of a runny eye at times. That was from being sick when I was a baby- it comes and goes and is no reason to worry.

    Good with Cats: Yes  |   Good with Dogs: Unknown  |   Good with Children: No Small Children
