Adoption Update!

We are very excited to announce that St. Francis Animal Rescue has begun doing pet adoptions again. Although we are not at the point where we are able to hold our Saturday adoption events at our partnering PetSmart stores, we are able to do adoptions on a one-on-one basis. 

Because the spread of COVID-19 is still a concern, we ask that anyone interested in adopting a pet submit their application online. A St. Francis volunteer will contact each applicant after the application has been reviewed.  

Applicants must follow the below guidelines when attending an animal meet and greet and/or adopting a new pet:

  • Applicants may bring only one guest 
  • Applicants and guest must be in good health and must not have been exposed to COVID-19, experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or travelled outside the state or country within the last 14 days
  • Applicants and guest must wear a mask or fabric covering over their nose and mouth
  • Applicants must sanitize their hands before and after the meet and greet/adoption
  • Applicants must bring their own pet carrier

If an applicant has any questions or concerns, please contact St. Francis at or 612-387-4869.

Thank you for your patience and your continued support.

e are now accepting gently used donated items for our annual summer garage sale. All proceeds will support our rescue animals. Items can be dropped off at any SFAAR Adoption Day event. Please see our list of upcoming adoption day events for times and locations.  

For more information, please email Sheryl at 

Puddles Needs Your Help

Puddles is a 7-month-old kitty that needs your help. She developed a head tilt in her forever home, shortly after adoption. She was diagnosed with a ruptured ear drum that stemmed from an ear infection. After multiple vet visits with our partnering vet it was determined that Puddles needed to see a specialist due to the abnormalities seen on her x-ray. She is in a lot of pain and we want her feeling better. With the current COVID-19 stay at home restrictions, Puddles is not scheduled to have her sedated exam and surgery until the week of the 20th to determine, and fix, the cause of the problems with her ear. Even though Puddles is in her forever home St. Francis is paying for the exam and surgery. With her having these issues so soon after adoption it is the right thing to do. I know times are tough for everyone right now but any amount you can spare would go directly to clinic that is facilitating her surgery. SFAAR currently has no income due to a freeze on our adoptions because of the restrictions we are all dealing with at this time. If you are able to help financially or share Puddles story with others that would be amazing. Thank You!!

Kitten Season!

Kitten Season is here! St. Francis Animal Rescue is in need of volunteers who would like to care for these little balls of fluff until we are able to find them a new loving home. Please contact us at 612-387-4869 if you would like additional information on becoming a foster volunteer.
