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 Tyler and i have such a sad story to tell you. I was abandoned behind a bar and so had a bad start in life. I was adopted as a kitten, but at the age of 12 my adopters got a new kitten and they said I started to not use the litter box. When asked if they'd taken me to a vet for a check-up, they said I hadn't been to a vet in the 12 years they'd had me. Can you believe it? St Francis took me back in and right to the vet. I was found to have a large bladder stone, which was removed, but I will need to be on a special diet for the rest of my life. This diet also has treats - which I found and loved! I've always used the box at my foster mom's house. I'm a little timid since my former adopters were not kind to me. I sleep on my foster mom's bed and she loves my purr. However, I initially hid under her nightstand most of the day, so I need a quiet house and a very patient soulmate. Want to hear my amazing purr??
