Hi, I'm Bristol! I have overcome many challenges in my short life. My foster mommy sayz i'm a survivor and a have huge love for life! I waz found without a mommy at only 1 week old and came to St. Francis to be bottle fed. As i first started eating on my own, my foster mommy noticed some quirks with my eating and that I was not gaining weight like i should. I went to the kitty doctor and they said i have something called Megaesophagus. It means my esophagus was shaped differently than normal and that was why I was having a hard time gaining weight. The doctor said to just euthanize me but my foster mommy knew that was not the right choice! She knew dogs lived just find with this condition with the help of a special feeding chair called the Bailey chair. So my foster daddy built me my own Bailey chair (we call it the Bristol chair, hehe!). And it works! It has been a long journey, but I am finally ready to find my forever family.

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.
