Please fill out 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: Sahara came from living outside in a hoarding situation with her 4 babies. Having to survive outside and giving birth to probably more than one litter, you would think that she would be not very nice, but she's actually extremely friendly. She would just enjoy being scratched behind her ears all day long if you had the time. She's got quite the personality, if you walk by without showing her attention, she will reach out her paw and tap your leg to let you know she is there. Since she's been inside, she has found the kitten in her. She really enjoys jumping on the cat tree and playing with the toys. Her favorite play toy is the empty box on the floor that she runs in and out of. Sahara was adopted into a wonderful quiet home with an older couple and small dog. She was very unhappy there and was returned. One would think that coming from a hoarder's house with lots of cats that a quiet home would be perfect, but it turns out to be wrong and Sahara would fit best in a more act
