Animal Adoption Insight appointments are by EMAIL only. St. Francis asked me to offer these appointments to help matching animals with the perfect person/family. Adopting an animal that is not well suited to your lifestyle can be very challenging for you and the animal and often times leads to behavioral issues or the animal leaving to find another home or lifestyle.
I offer these 15-minute appointments for $15.00 as one of my contributions to the animals. Based on the information you provide on the form I will give the prospective adoptee animal the details about your lifestyle and your expectations. Then I will give the animal the opportunity to express its feelings and if it feels this is a good match.
These can also be used for what we term “feral” animals. Please understand NOT all feral animals want to be domesticated or have an inside home.
Most people have good intentions wanting to help the animal and give it a good home. Adoptions have not always gone smoothly, people will choose a particular animal because of looks or breed and its general personality traits. Many times the animal will be returned, set loose or it leaves on its own. I ask you to put yourself in the animal’s shoes and consider their perspective. Would you consent to live with someone that chose you, but you were not allowed to agree or express your feelings? Animals are sentient Beings and have free will.
Once you receive the animal’s perspective on what it needs and the life it wants, then you can make an informed choice if it aligns with your lifestyle and expectations.
