Hi my name is Pepper! I've lived a tough life so far but I'm ready for my happy ending! I was found behind a hotel extremely pregnant with horribly infected ears, emaciated, and a bump on my lip. That next morning I gave birth to 6 babies who have since already found homes. My foster mom worked very hard to get me healthy but for some reason the bump on my lip never went away. The vet took a sample and saw there were round cells which meant I had a tumor. So the following week I had my tumor removed and it turns out it was cancer! This type of cancer usually also affects the lungs but the X-rays of my lungs are clear. So right now I am cancer free! But I need to have my lungs xrayed every 6 months for the first two years to be sure the cancer stays gone, then once a year after that. My adopter also would need to make sure the tumor doesn't come back on my face either. I really hope someone will still consider loving me and making me part of their family. I'm very sweet and love nothing more than to curl up next to you and purr away while you pet me. I'm also still playful! I love a good catnip toy and will play with it for hours. I hope to meet you soon! Love, Pepper

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.
