Hi hoomans! My name is Noel, and although my story starts sad, I want everyone to know what a HAPPY girl i am and have remained through my whole ordeal. My owners brought me to the county shelter a week before Christmas. They said they were allergic to me. That part was sad because I loved them. But what was even sadder was I spent 2 whole months living in a cage at the shelter wondering if my family was coming back for me, or if anybody would give me a new home. I have been told I am beautiful, and I have been told I have an adorable little chirp. But still i sat there in a cage, week after week. Then I heard someone say something about me being on a list. They were frowning when they said it, so I knew it wasn't a good list. But my luck finally changed when a nice lady with St. Francis saw my picture and just knew she had to come save me! I am doing my kitty happy dance right now just to be out of that cage! My foster mommy says I am one sweet and special girl, and whoever adopts me will be extremely lucky! I hope to meet my real forever family soon. Until then, I will be enjoying my freedom and chirping my cute song to whoever will listen! I need to be on a prescription urinary diet but other than that I am a normal kitty. Meow for now! Noel

About St. Francis Society Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

St. Francis Society Animal Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit 501-c-3 animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of sick, injured, and stray domestic animals as well as spay/neuter and medical services for those animals. We seek to place animals in a loving foster or permanent home after recovery and we DO NOT euthanize unless terminal illness necessitates such a decision. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia/FIV (cats), wormed and vaccinated before they are adopted.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Some of our cats ready for adoption can be seen at the following Adoption Center locations:

PetSmart, located at 12835 Citrus Park Dr across from the Citrus Park Mall. Our volunteers are onsite for adoptions Saturday and Sunday from 12:00pm to 5:00pm and will be happy to assist you with finding the perfect feline companion. PetSmart management can assist with an adoption during other days/hours, time permitting. Cats are onsite 7 days a week.

PetSmart, located at 11331 Causeway Blvd in Brandon. Cats and adoption counselors are onsite for adoptions Saturday from 9:00am to 3:00pm and Sunday from 10:30am to 2:30pm only.

Petco, located at 13127 N Dale Mabry Hwy. Cats and adoption counselors are onsite Saturdays from 11:00am to 4:00pm only.

We have many more cats than the ones housed at our Adoption Center locations. Our cats live with foster families until they are ready for adoption and space is available at an Adoption Center. If a cat is located in a foster home and the foster has provided contact information, you can get more details on a particular cat directly from them.

Our Adoption Process...

Cats are to be indoor only; no declawing; must present proof of pet deposit and copy of lease showing pets are allowed if renting. cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on age appropriate shots, wormed and defleaed. More is charged for exotic breeds (or mixed) - i.e. Siamese, Persians, Bengals, etc.
