St. Francis of Assisi Animal Rescue

St. Francis Animal Rescue (SFAAR) is a volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are dedicated to rescuing and rehoming abandoned, neglected, stray and surrendered dogs and cats.

Until they are adopted, the pets in our program live in loving foster homes as part of the family while we learn about their personalities, behaviors and temperments. Foster families work with their animals to teach them good manners, care for any medical problems, and address any behavior issues. This information helps our adoption counselors match the perfect pet for you and your family. 

All pets adopted from St. Francis have been vaccinated, tested for heartworm or FeLV/FIV, dewormed, treated for fleas and ticks, and spayed or neutered. We do our best to ensure that the pet you adopt is healthy and happy.

To meet our animals, visit us at our Saturday Adoption Day events at the Forest Lake and Maplewood PetSmart stores.
