Wishing all of our friends a wonderful holiday season and a safe and happy New Year!

Thank you!

Thanks to everyone who shopped our annual garage sale and helped to make it a huge success. We appreciate your continued support. 

Congratulations Jola!

Jola was rescued from animal control by St. Franics Animal Rescue on August 16th, 2017. Over the years, Jola stayed at multiple foster homes and recovered from a variety of health issues. She handled everything with her typical spunk and sass. Jola waited nearly three years wondering if there was a family out there just for her. Today was the day Jola could stop wondering and finally experience what countless other kitties have in those 1,060 days - their forever home! Thank you to her most current foster mom who cared for Jola almost two years and for allowing her to go to her new loving home. Jola will be much loved in her new home as the queen of her castle. 


We know that not everyone is able to adopt a pet, but you can still make a big difference in the life of a homeless dog or cat. 

St. Francis Animal rescue makes every effort to find loving homes for the special needs animals in our care. Sadly, some of the dogs and cats that come to us have been abused or neglected, and others are injured or suffer chronic illnesses. St. Francis provides lifelong care for any animal that does not get adopted. 

Sponsoring an animal provides a way for you to help us cover the ongoing veterinary care these animals require. Even though you are not adopting, a single donation or a monthly commitment can go a long way in helping us care for the animal you choose to sponsor.   

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.

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.
