Our Dogs *

Since all of our dogs live in foster homes and it is up to the foster family to transport for adoption events, we can not ensure that all dogs will be present. If you are interested in seeing a specific dog, please contact the person listed by phone or email to arrange a visit with the dog.


St. Francis dogs/puppies are living in foster homes.
Please contact their foster parent to meet our dogs.

  • My story: Hi there...my name is Libby! I am 4 years old and about 60 lbs. I was saved on the day I was supposed to be euthanized...and all because I became aggressive to the shelter staff...after my former family left me at the shelter because their landlord said I grew too big to live with them. I wasn't really aggressive...just really, really scared out there! I wouldn't let anyone come near me...and in fact fought them the whole time they were trying to release me to my new foster mommy. She got me home and calmed me down with some chicken nuggets and lots of love! Even when I am laying at her feet...I am touching her with my paw or laying my head on her foot. I like to sleep in bed right next to you too and I cuddle! I sit and shake, am crate & house trained too! *Due to loud bark - must be in a house! So if you are looking for a loving companion...then I am the girl for you! **Please note that we only adopt our dogs out to adopters living in the immediate Tampa Bay Area.

  • My story: Boomer is a 14 pound baby that was found wandering in rural Hillsborough County. He is a Chihuahua mix that is distrustful of strangers and must get to know you before you approach or he will try to nip you...as something scared this little boy badly during his first 18 months on earth! He is thriving in his foster home and has learned to be social and how to play with all his furry roommates! He is potty trained and loves to ride in the car! If you have a quiet home and are willing to show him he will be safe with you...please fill out his application and he will be over to find out how comfy your bed is...as he will be sleeping right by your side!

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