Facts about Leo

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Can you help Leo find his true happy ending? Leo originally came to St. Francis Humane Association when his family, who he lived with from the day he was born, was forced to move in to a retirement community, but could only take two of their four cats. Shortly after entering our adoption program, Leo had his second chance at a happy ending when he was adopted by a wonderful couple. Unfortunately, life is unpredictable and two years later, Leo found his way back in to our care when his family’s living situation changed. That’s tough, but even tougher is within a month of returning to our care, Leo was diagnosed with diabetes. He’s not letting it get him down, though, and we’re committed to finding him the wonderful, loving, FOREVER home he deserves! Leo is a sweet and affectionate cat and would be a great companion for any family. He does well with other cats and tolerates dogs, but isn’t afraid to let them know when they’ve crossed the line. Leo has been examined by a veterinarian, tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, received his age appropriate vaccines and has been neutered and microchipped. Leo is diabetic and currently insulin dependent.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Process

Complete an adoption application. Applications are available on this website or at one of our adoption stand events.

Once your application is received, you will be contacted by one of our volunteers to discuss your responses.

A volunteer will review your application, contact your references, and do a veterinarian check. A home visit will be performed, if necessary. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant if, in our judgment, the applicant or home is unsuitable.

You will be contacted at the completion of the evaluation of your application. If you are approved, arrangements will be made for you to pick up your new pet. The adoption fee will be collected at the time of adoption. This fee helps to cover the cost of caring for the pet including, but not limited to, food, routine and emergency veterinary care, medication, etc.

You will be expected to provide shelter, food, and veterinary care including yearly routine care (physical exam, vaccines, etc.) and emergency care, if needed. In return, you will receive a warm and fuzzy friend for life!

You may be contacted shortly after the finalization of the adoption process to ensure that you and your new pet have acclimated well to one another. Should you encounter any problems, please do not hesitate to contact us.

SFHA reserves the right to reclaim pets that are neglected or cared for improperly. Pets must not be sold or given away. Should your need to be re-homed, please contact us.
