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'm a tiny little guy. When I ended up at a shelter as a newborn, I was really sick. My foster mom from St. Francis took me home and nursed me back to health. Sadly, my brother didn't make it. I was so sick that I had to be tube fed for a while because I was too weak to eat. Because of that, I didn't grow very fast. I still have a problem with my sinuses and maybe always will. I often have to take antibiotics for my runny nose and watery eye. My foster mom says she can always find me by just listening for my breathing! But even though I'm a noisy breather, I can do anything my foster siblings can do! I run, climb and love to chase a laser light. I'm not a very brave guy and often hide under the furniture. Most of the time, you won't even know I'm there. (Smidge also has chronic urinary track infections and takes a daily medication that he will need for the rest of his life.)
