PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. Although St. Francis Animal Protection Society does its best to pick out the healthiest of animals rescued, we cannot guarantee the health of the animals offered for adoption. Any time you adopt an animal, you should take it to a licensed veterinarian as soon as possible, in order to start it immediately on a program of preventative vet care. Be aware that the animals available for adoption are rescues and may have been exposed to (or may have) an upper respiratory infection or other illness or diseases. These disorders can have an incubation period of up to several weeks. If the animal you adopt shows signs of illness at any point, you must take it promptly to your veterinarian for treatment at your expense.
Submitting an application is not a guarantee of adoption. Our goal is to find the right match based on what a family is looking for, and what's best for the animal.
I certify that the information entered on this application is true and I have read and understand this disclaimer. Enter your name and today's date.*
