Who Are Pet Celebrities?   The wonderful pets featured below are recommended by volunteers based on the most need, special
circumstances, or  simply overlooked and waiting in shelters the longest.  Please give them your consideration.  Many never get a home.
Meet Freeway, just one of trhe dozens of cats and kittens available at   Rochester Animal Services. This Week's Featured Cats   RAS Foster
Remember, it is always 2 fur 1 fee for cats at RAS for qualified homes.

Bugsys Note:  Remember, RAS is an official department of the city of Rochester.  They are required to take in all lost or stray animals and keep them 7 days.   If the place is full and existing animals are not retrieved, RAS tries their best to avoid euthanasia, but they have space limitations and are required to keep them only 7 days.  Great organization - go their to save a life. 
Meet Benji who is shy at first, but warms up quickly. He is here because there were too many animals so he lost his home and is now in a shelter looking for a new one at no fault of his own. This sweet boy responds best to soft, gentle tones of a voice and I see a big potential for this little guy to be a great cuddle buddy. He's a bit frightened here inside the shelter but his confidence quickly builds once he is outdoors in a more natural setting. He is eager to please and loves his belly rubs. He does well playing with the other shelter dogs in the play yard. He seems to be comfortable around dogs but is learning to slowly trust people again. This sweet boy is in need of some tender loving care and I'm sure that he will return it with many doggie kisses. Come into meet this nice dog, he is very unique looking with his big ears...adorable!   Rochester Animal Services  This Week's Featured Dogs     RAS Foster Dogs  
Taz is a calm and loving little long haired Chihuahua. He came from a shelter in Ohio and took a plane to get to us!!! He loves talking walks and is curious about the happenings in his neighborhood. He has already found the most comfortable chair in the home and seems to have claimed it as his own. We don't mind as we love to see him happy and spoiled. He gets along fine with dogs and could care less about his feline foster sister! A home with older children that will respect his small-ness will probably be best. He is a lap dog and would love to sit with you and be petted  Buffalo Pug & Small Breed Rescue  
Cash, a smooth fox terrier, is a friendly energetic boy! Cash would thrive in a home where he could run and chase a ball or frisbee. He loves to swim! He has nipped at children in the past so adult home only is required. He also has a terrier attitude- which includes hunting therefore a no cat home is a must. Cash has also shown us that he prefers to be top dog. Cash will do best in a home where he is the only pet and is able to be spoiled and loved as an only child! We picture him with a young active couple or single person. Someone who would spend time playing and exercising with Cash. Buffalo Pug & Small Breed Rescue

Nelson is a 2 yr. old Blue Point Siamese ; He came to our rescue after being trapped in the City of Rochester and taken to a shelter He is extremely laid back and gets along great with other cats. ; He is okay with dogs as long as they don't show too much interest in him. If they come at him, he acts fearful and runs away. Nelson would thrive in a quiet home without children. ; He is a super sweet boy.  Man, what a dude!  Another Chance Pet Rescue Meet Joline!  Joline is a hoot, but needs a little additional socialization. She is fine with other cats and plays like a maniac and can reach tall building in a single bound!

Donnie is a 10 month old male Pit Bull Terrier/ Retriever mix who weighs 45 pounds. This energetic pup loves to get his exercise in our courtyard and is working on his leash walking.  He's in need of a bit of training to spiff up his social skills and manners so he'll need to go to class with you.  We think he'll do best in a home where any children are age 14 and over.  Bring everyone, dogs included, to meet Donnie at Lollypop Farm!  If you would like more information about Donnie #(23925577) please call 585-223-1330 or visit Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester at 99 Victor Rd. in Fairport, NY..

Jessy is a gorgeous kitten that is as adorable as she is sweet. It was discovered while she was under for her spay that she has a slight heart murmur but it doesn't effect how much she plays or loves her human...she does have a special adoption fee due to it though. She is fostered with dogs as well as other cats and children and loves everyone. She was rescued from a local shelter where she was dumped too young to be adopted. She is now old enough to be adopted into a loving forever home- could it be yours?.

Frenchie is a one year old black lab mix and just celebrated her birthday on July 23. She lives with our 2 yr old lab mix, my adult son and myself. Frenchie has a great personality and enjoys playing with toys and tennis balls. She can be shy around men but we are working on that as she has improved a lot in the time she has been with us. My son cares for her during the day and she had learned to trust him. She knows basic commands, is good on a leash and is crate trained. She is a beautiful girl that loves other dogs and people and will make a loving loyal pet.    Rudy's Rescue -   Upstate NY Labrador Retriever Rescue  Duffy's Friends would like to introduce Spohie Snowshoe to you. She is between 8 to 12 months and she is a beautiful snowshoe mix! Her personality is to let roll with this program and she did not mind flying to rescue with 8 dogs. Her foster home tells me that dogs are no problem and she could care less. This girl can live with canines!  We have spayed her, tested her for FLV/ FELV and she is negative. She has all her vaccinations, worming and is sporting flea protection. She is ready for her new home. Her eyes are ice blue and her colors are Snowshoe so go to google and find out about this fabulous breed.

This handsome, sweet boy is George, a 1 year old chow/lab/pit bull mix. George weighs 54 lbs. George was a stray that was very stressed out in the kennel environment so once his hold time was up and no one came to claim him, we were happy to take him into rescue. George is crate trained and appears house broken. He is currently fostered with 2 large female dogs and he gets along well with them. He loves to go for walks and loves to greet all the children along the way. Due to his size and activity level though, children 8 years or older would probably be best. George can also jump very high   Nuts for Mutts Rescue, Inc
Catniss is part of the August Adopt-a-thon. In hopes of helping her find a fur-ever home, the adoption fee has been reduced to $50 for a fully vetted cat including spaying. Please help Catniss by completing an adoption today.
We know the saying about black cats and bad luck, but we can guarantee you that Catniss will only bring you joy. She is a bit shy at first, but quite sassy once she gets to know you. She and her brother Peeta were born and living in a box on a porch this Fall before All Creatures rescued them. We thought they were worth the effort, don't you? Catniss is used to other cats and dogs in her foster home... won't you give her a chance of having a permanent home for once in her life?      Email  Marjorie @  All Creatures Big and Small 
Annie is about a 2 years old. She is housetrained and likes to be with you. My husband calls her the perfect "man's" dog. She likes to ride around in his pick up truck... loves to go hunting (squirrels are her specialty)... and doesn't mind being around power tools... if you are doing construction she is right by your side!! Her only drawback is she doesn't like most other dogs or cats.     SusieQ Dog ResQ (formerly Another  Chance Dog Ranch)  papillon1254@rochester.rr.com Meet Stella.   Stella is 4+ years old and a beautiful girl.  She likes playing with toys. She is dog selective. SHE DOES NOT LIKE CATS.  She does need work, she does not know any commands, she does try to counter surf looking for food, so she does know off. I'm trying to work with her.     For more information contact Kathy at   Brightstar German Shepherd Rescue

Get ready for Desiree, the traveling kitty from Ohio. Desiree is an incredibly sweet 1 year old girl who showed up on a kind lady's doorstep at the end of January, 2014. Currently, Desiree is in a PAWS foster home. She loves snuggles, belly rubs, and food. She's very affectionate and loves to be the center of attention. She's not a big fan of dogs, so she'd do best in a cat only household, but I promise if you give her the opportunity, she will brighten your life with her affection and sunny disposition.  Read More www.LiFelineAdoptions.org

Can you provide a sheltered, outdoor home with fresh food and water for cats removed from stray and/or feral colonies in Rochester, NY? These cats have all been tested for FeLV and FIV, have been spayed or neutered, have had rabies and distemper vaccinations, and have been dewormed. A barn would be great, but a shed, dog house or igloo would work too! It's so rewarding to offer a home to these poor displaced souls who face no other option but a desperate life on the dangerous city streets or euthanasia. We will work with you to get the cat set up and acclimated to the new location -- Please contact us at 585-234-0942 or by e-mail  right away if you can help!
  Another Chance Pet Rescue Bugsy's Note:   Nearly every rescue group needs people to offer outside/barn homes.  If you ever feel you can help one, email Bugsy.
Delia, a 14 year old, female, Jack Russell Terrier,  is in her golden years but she acts like a young girl. She is good with dogs and kids but would prefer a home without cats. She enjoys sleeping in her dog bed (or your bed) and is housebroken.

Meet snuggley Hazel! Hazel was found in the basement of abandoned house as a small baby. She was nursed back to health by her foster mom and is ready for her forever home. She is a teenager and likes to play so any resident dog must be able to tolerate our playful girl. Hazel has the ability to jump fences so her new home should have a 6 foot + privacy fence. This girl just wants someone to love her, she loves to nuzzle and gives sweet kisses. Her smushy little face is hard to resist!   Pitty Love Rescue,  (585) 376-0290; Email
 Baby is a petite 5 year old kitty, maybe not a kitten anymore, but she sure plays like one. Her markings on her face are such that she looks unique. She loves lots of attention, is very talkative, and brushing her is okay as long as she will allow it and that is called her "catitude". Her naps are a good part of her day and just laying in the window watching the outdoor activities seem to appease her. She would do well in a family with no other cats and no young children. As for dogs we are not really sure. Baby does sleep thru the night on her foster moms bed, but also has her own little bed when she chooses. She is a very loving kitty and would make for a good addition to your family.   G.R.A.S.P (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) - (585) 234-1953 
Meet Peanut a 6 year old, female  lab mix (either with Doxie or Basset) and is 35 lbs but could use putting on a couple more. Peanut is young and heart and has a lot of energy and loves her walks with her foster Mom and Dad who are working on her leash manners. She is good with other dogs but can play rough so larger dogs are best, she also loves playing with her toys and needs a fenced in yard to run in .   Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions    Email
