Adoptions

To adopt this animal from St. Francis, you must first fill out this Adoption Agreement form and submit it. The form will be carefully reviewed by an adoption counsellor. We try to get applications reviewed as quickly as possible. If we have problems contacting your references, this will delay the process. Most disapprovals result either from a negative veterinary reference, a "no pets" policy by landlords, or a difference in philosophy regarding the treatment of animals. St. Francis Society is a privately owned, all volunteer organization. We have strict guidelines for adoption approval and our volunteers have the right to refuse adoption applicants based on their own judgment.

Once an application is approved, the adopter is notified and can arrange to pick up their new pet. There are certain items that you must have before we will release the pet. A volunteer will be happy to assist you with shopping for your new friend before leaving our Adoption Center. You will also receive a copy of the pets health records and a packet of information put together especially for you and your new pet by one of our volunteers.

Jake
Breed:Smooth Fox Terrier
Color:White/Black
Sex:Male
Age:9 yrs 2 months
Weight:20 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Jake's best friend was adopted from the pound, but Jake was left behind. Jake is a great little guy who needs reassurance. He is somewhat unsettled after being separated from his loved-ones, but comes around quickly. Jake wants to be by your side all of the time, and thrives on attention and affection. He likes other dogs but is overwhelmed sometimes in his foster home with 7 dogs in the pack, and would, therefore, like to downsize. Smooth Fox Terrier mix, docked tail, about 6 years old, 20#, neutered, current on vaccines, a real sweetheart. He runs with the big dogs, and will guard your castle. Jake feels lost and wants to be found. Will you please find him and let him become your forever boy?

    Special Needs: Cannot be the only dog...needs a doggy friend to be happy in a home.

    Good with Cats: Yes  |   Good with Dogs: Yes  |   Good with Children: No Small Children
