Facts about Apollo

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair

  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: C004525
  • Hair: Short
I'm Apollo I was living the good life loved by my family then everything changed. My mom had a baby who is allergic to me and my brother Mitch. My mom had this confirmed with testing. She contacted St Francis crying asking for help. This is what my old owner had to say

Apollo will be very shy at first, but once he is comfortable, he loves attention. He loves people and other cats, and like Mitch, hasn't been exposed to any dogs. He's still young so he enjoys playing, especially with toys that he can bat. Apollo enjoys sleeping most of the day and is most active in the afternoon and evening. He loves to cuddle and if allowed in a bed will happily sleep there. If lonely, he'll meow and let you know that he wants some love (but isn't one of those non-stop meowers). I originally adopted him from St. Francis. The woman I adopted him from said he was found, abandoned, and without a mother at only a week or so in age. She bottle fed him until he was old enough to be adopted, and I fell in love with him at first sight. He was playful and cuddly from the start.

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.
