Sharing your home with a cat or kitten is a wonderful experience and can bring you lots of joy. If you are willing to make the necessary commitments of time, money, responsibility, and love - for the life of the pet - you are ready to adopt.
Because we want all of our cats to go to a safe, loving, permanent home, we have some
qualifying conditions. You must:
*Be at least 21 years old
*Agree that the pet will be an indoor companion only
*Agree that the pet will not be declawed
*Pay the adoption fee by cash (we no longer accept checks)
*Have the landlord’s written consent to own an animal on the property (if applicable)
If you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting a cat or kitten, please complete an online cat adoption application. Completing an application does not mean you have to adopt a cat or kitten, it just lets us know which cat you are interested in. Once we receive your application, a St. Francis volunteer will review it and contact you to arrange a meet and greet with the cat. It is important that you spend some time with the cat to see if it would be a good fit for your household.
After you adopt, we require you to bring your new pet to your veterinarian for a "Well Check" within 30 days of the adoption date. Although our veterinarian has done a thorough check of the animal, sometimes an illness or ailment will occur between the animal's check up and the time of adoption. Many vets provide a free or reduced price wellness visit for rescue animals.
We want to make sure everything goes well after an adoption. A volunteer will contact you several weeks after the adoption to make sure you and your new pet are not having any difficulties.
If you have additional questions, please call us at 612-387-4869 and leave a message. A volunteer will contact you as soon as possible.
