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: My name is Alice and I am about 2 years old. I lived on the streets in Sulfer Springs most of my life. I was severely injured and my tail was all but severed. I dragged it around for a long time until I was rescued by St Francis Animal Rescue. I have tolerated the pain of an injured tail because my focus was trying not to starve to death. I was taken in by my foster who gave me the first good meal I have had in a very long time. I was then taken to the vet where they had to amputate my horribly injured tail. I am so grateful to St Francis for giving me the antibiotics and pain medicine I need to get better. I feel I have a second chance for a happy life. I would be happiest as an only cat, and please- no small children. I like things quiet and calm. I like to be petted and scratched but I'm not a lap kitty. Somebody hurt me in the past, so sometimes I get scared.
