Hi, my name's Dottie! I was doing my very best to get by on the scary streets of Tampa. I found a house where a man was nice enough to give me some dog food (hey, it was better than starving!) every day. Then when I had babies, he asked lots of cat rescue groups for help because he has big dogs that aren't good with cats and didn't think it would be a safe place for me and my tiny babies. Thank goodness St Francis came to our rescue! Not only have I been a wonderful mama to my 4 babies, but I took in 2 orphaned kittens who were too young to be without a mama. All 6 of "my" babies are now weaned and will soon be finding their own families. I sure hope I don't get left behind. How wonderful would it be if I found my forever home first! I am just the sweetest, most loving and affectionate kitty - at least that's what my foster mama says! I love to have my belly rubbed! We think I must have belonged to someone at some point, and then they tossed me out when they moved. I am SO happy to have found my way back to the comforts and safety of indoor living! I am just a tiny girl, only 5 lbs, and practically w kitten myself! I hope you'll consider me as your new furry best friend!

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.
