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.
This is faith (formerly known as flapjack). She is a 10-12 year old female beagle mix. She was found abandoned by her family in an outside kennel in Kentucky. She was left for quite a long time with no food and water but miraculously survived. When finally rescued the shelter staff were surprised to find out she was such a sweet girl. Despite the fact she was literally starving to death she made sure to give her rescuers a kiss and show her gratitude before then pulling the grass out by the roots to eat. She is good with dogs of all sizes and cats. She loves people... She is a very affectionate girl and is free with her sloppy kisses.  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  
This is Shay.  On 7/1  our groomer confirmed she thought she was a Silky which a more calm dog in the terrier lines. She is fabulous and this profile writer is her foster home.  She is about 4 years old and weighs about 15 lbs. She was found in the shelter and with hair badly matted she will receive a summer hair cut - can't save this coat! In three months you will see the beautiful Yorkshire colors of black and tan points. She is a great little girl and walks so proudly on a leash. The nicest thing is this girl is housebroken. The foster home is crating her at night to get her use to the process but she does not need it. She also can live with cats and the cats seemed to like her. How can you not like this girl as she is special and sweet as sugar. Read MoreEmail   Duffy's Friends, Inc Chase has arrived and what a great dog he is. We believe him to be a possible short legged dog mixed with Schnauzer or terrier He is sweet, loving and housebroken. He is 14 months old and we have provided first and second distemper vaccinations along with rabies, kennel cough and his neuter. He is on heart worm preventative. He is also bath, flea free and wormed! We at Duffys Friends would like a fenced in yard for this boy!     Chase loves to play with other dogs and would be a good companion to an existing dog in the home. As with all terriers he loves to play with his foster home friends. He is also puppy energy and he should go to a family that is willing to exercise him daily. He has short legs and should not get more than 30 lbs. He is about 25 lbs now at 15 months old and his hair is very soft and streaks of gold, brown and liver colors. His foster home is super and is putting obedience on him while he waits for his forever home. He is a great dog and we can't believe no one is looking at him. He does not take good pictures so please don't judge this book by its cover.  What a unique mix he is and his eyes are copper in color with a brown nose to match!  Email   Duffy's Friends, Inc

Meet Adelene, an 8 month old Pit Bull mix.   Adelene is a lovely girl who is easy to walk on a leash and appears kennel trained.  She is very calm for her age and will work for her treats.  She is not only a naturally beautiful girl on the outside but is very sweet on the inside as well.  Adelene‚Äôs definitely one of those dogs who would be a great addition to a family who is looking for a happy girl who is full of love and gentle kisses for everyone. She was a little apprehensive out in the play yard at firs,t but did get the hang of it rather quickly and really loves to play with the other dogs.  She is a very appropriate player and knows how to have fun.with me.   Rochester Animal Services  This Week's Featured Dogs     RAS Foster Dogs

NOTE:  RAS has to euthanize if space runs out.  They are chartered as animal control - to me, it is one of the first places to go to save a life - wonderful  animals just run out of time as new strays show up, bumping them.

Meet Twinkie, a 1 year old Domestic Short Hair.Twinkie came in with her sister Ginger who was recently adopted.  This little sweetie pie loves to play and explore and enjoys playing with cat nip toys.  Twinkie also enjoys snuggling on a warm lap after a hard day of play. Please ask to visit with Twinkie, she just might steal your heart.

I'm Remington the 2 year old male black lab. My previous owner found himself homeless and couldn't take me with him so here I am at All Creatures. Today has been quite the day. A car trip to the vet's office, a vet check, shots and a operation called neutering. Oh ya and I tested negative for heartworm. I showed everyone at the vet's office that I know the sit command. If you're looking for a handsome dude, how about me!! Hurry and fill out an application today. Since I've been vetted I can home with you right away. Email  Marjorie   All Creatures Big and Small   Note - On an  approved home he can be transported to Rochester  Bugsys's Note:   Check his video - picture does not do him justice.
Ace is a 2 year old male Shepherd/Border Collie mix who weighs 60 pounds. Ace is a little shy but will come to meet new folks on his own and then he warms up. He's not a really playful pup and we're not sure if he's just a very chill dude or if he's not sure how to play. We think he'll need to go to training classes with you to help him transition to a new home and build a bond with his new humans. Bring everyone, dogs included, to meet Ace at Lollypop Farm. If you would like more information about Ace (#23300170) please call 585-223-1330 or visit Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester at 99 Victor Rd. in Fairport, NY.
Gracie is a 1 year old female domestic shorthair who is at Lollypop Farm for the second time through no fault of her own. When we took her photo, she was getting used to the cattery by snuggling under her towel until it felt OK to come out. She's a friendly girl who "asks" for attention and loves to be petted. Come meet her at Lollypop Farm! If you would like more information about Gracie (#21190840) please call 585-223-1330 or visit Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester at 99 Victor Rd. in Fairport, NY.

Bugsy's Note:  They have quite a few kittens. 
Natalia is a very pretty girl who is very playful. She will let you pet her, purr and pick her up, but does not like to be held for long. She gets along well with other cats and is fine around polite dogs. Natalia is not an overly affectionate girl, but likes to just be around you and do her own thing.  Animal Service League  585) 342-6099  Email    Wow, look at her colors.  Pretty girl.

Meet Carly! This young lady, like her brothers and sisters, had a rough start in life. They were found extremely emaciated and full of worms. They gained weight only to fall victim to mange. Carly, like her siblings, has beat the pants off any illness that has come her way.  She is 100% crate trained and house trained. She is very sweet and loving. This little girl can win your heart over in no time at all!! She has not met a dog she doesn't like. Carly comes on playfully strong when meeting a new dog, so she will need a relaxed doggie companion if you already have a dog. She also shares a bedroom with a crated rabbit and she is just fine!  Carly is the apple of her foster mom's eye and brings much joy, laughter and kisses to her on a daily basis. Wouldn't you like to meet this wonderful lady?  Pitty Love Rescue      pittyloverescue@gmail.com

OVER A YEAR WAITING IN THE SHELTER:  Ursala is the first cat to enter the shelter during 2013 (way over a year ago).   She is about five years old and a great "Talker".  This is a  wonderful girl who has been overlooked for so long. Happy Tails" Humane Society of Ontario County (585) 396-4590   Email NEARLY FOUR YEARS IN SHELTER: Sophia came into shelter September 25th, 2011.  That is nearly 3.5 years ago.  She is a Hound mix, born on 10/20/10.  She should be the only child (no kids, cats, other dogs).  She has some personality "quirks", but is a sweet girl for right owner.  Happy Tails" Humane Society of Ontario County (585) 396-4590   Email
Hello! I am Rambo the ADORABLE boxer/bulldog mix male. I am too cute for words and look like a mini boxer- I am short and stocky like a bulldog but have a boxer face and coat coloring. I love to play and will make a fun companion. I need some basics in training and no other dogs in the house. I tested lightly positive for heartworm so the staff has been treating me here at the hospital. I am now just being monitored and ready for my freedom ride! Come down and adopt me today! I am current on vaccines and will be neutered.  Scottsville Veterinary Adoptions
Knikko is one of 5 male lab/chow mix pups that was born to Lady, a chow that was rescued from a shelter in poor health. After being pulled from the shelter it was discovered that Lady was pregnant! Her foster mama stuck by Lady and helped her get healthy enough to have her babies. Well now it's time for these 5 rambunctious boys to leave home and make it on their own with the help of a wonderful and loving forever family. We are guessing they are mixed with Labrador Retriever based on the pups' appearance. Knikko is 11 weeks old, about 15 lbs, neutered, microchipped and has received 2 sets of puppy shots  Application can be found here -   Chow Chow Rescue   maryannk@rochester.rr.com

Tristan (American Staffordshire Terrier & Bullmastiff Mix) has come a long way from what he looked/felt like a few months ago. We rescued this bald baby with mange and severe skin infections as a result of it going untreated. Now he is on the road to recovery and seeking his forever home. His medications are now done, so he will just need a recheck to get the okay to neuter him.    Tristan is a pretty quiet boy who loves to snuggle, but likes to play with the other dogs too. He has been fostered in a home with a cat, many other dogs of all ages/sizes/breeds and with children. He is a goof ball with his big paws tromping through the house just looking for some play time or to hop up in your lap.,  Going to the Dogs Rescue
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

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.    She is spayed, up to date on shots and micro chipped. 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.
Kitty is about 5 years old. She is a talker - can you tell. She has a lot to tell you if you have the time to listen. She was turned in because the dog in the household did not like her. She needs to go to a home with no dogs since she has learned to be afraid of them.   Bugsy's Note:  Wow, orange females are very rare!!!!!!    Volunteers For Animals / Genesee County  Email
Meet snuggly 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
Meet Miss Kitty O'Shea who like "Grumpy Cat" has features that make her appear grumpy, but that couldn't be farther from the truth! Miss Kitty O'Shea had a litter of her own and welcomed 2 orphaned kits into her already large family and raised them as her own! She was an excellent Mom despite being young herself
With eyes shaped like she's scowling and a mustache that looks like she's pouting, and a personality as sweet as pie, everyone just loves her when they meet her! Another Chance Pet Rescue.
Derby is a two year old male black lab with 3 paws. He is neutered, up to date on all shots, and micro chipped. Derby so far appears to be house trained and will stand by the door to let you know he's ready to go out.   Derby is a sweet loving three legged dog. He prefers to be outside and he will try his best to lead us back to the yard so he can sniff around, play, and just be outside. Derby very quickly claimed the love-seat and it's definitely his favorite place to be inside! Derby is quiet in the crate (except for his tail wagging and hitting the sides of the crate). We laugh so hard because he's like a cat and will just rub his face and side of his head all over us in the same manner a cat does. Rudy's Rescue -   Upstate NY Labrador Retriever Rescue 
Savannah is a petite, shy young girl born 6/1/09. She came to us nursing a litter of 3 kittens. She was a very doting mother. Her kittens are grown and all have been adopted. Savannah is so sweet and starts to purr the minute she is touched. She enjoys being held and will sit in her foster moms lap and snuggle. She would do best in a very quiet home. Her photos do not do her justice. In her foster home she loves to sit in the window sill and take naps in the sunshine and watch the birds outside. Another Chance Pet Rescue 234-0942
Bugsy's Note:  LOL, she is so cute, looks like a reverse skunk.  Mom cats are so overlooked and so deserving.

Eleanor is an adorable little kitten who is looking for her forever home. She was born the end of July to her mom who was stuck in a local shelter.  Eleanor is a wonderful kitten who loves everyone and just wants to be loved and petted. If you think you can provide her a forever home please fill out our adoption application.

Libra is a gorgeous husky mix, born about October 15, 2005 and weighs about 65 lbs.  Don't let her age fool you, she will walk till YOU drop!  She loves to go for walks and will let you know how excited she is by giving you a typical husky "woo woooooo"!  She is very good on a leash and in the house. Huskies are very prone to running, so it is best to have her on a leash at all times or in a fenced in yard.  Some huskies are escape artists, but she accepts a baby gate in her foster home without trying to jump over it.  She is proving to be very smart and is learning quickly.  Joyful Rescues 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

She would make a great family cat for anyone lucky enough to pick her. Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions    Email Gorgeous kitty; perhaps adopt her and one of the kids!
Penelope Pit Stop is an independent kitten up for exploration and playing. She loves adventure and the other cats of the house. When the day is over, cuddle time is tolerated. These babies have been with our rescue for over a month and they have had some ups and downs along the way. They were brought in to a local veterinary clinic to be euthanized when they were taken from an animal hoarder who was ordered never to have pets again just a year ago.  Read More.   Email  Marjorie @ bogrady@citlink.net   All Creatures Big and Small  
Hi there.  My name is Baby and I am a DSH black and white female. I am very quiet and love to watch everything including the birds outside and the other cats playing. I do like to be petted and will purr instantly!   G.R.A.S.P (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) - (585) 234-1953  If you are looking for a sweet, affectionate, medium size dog, Abby is for you! She actually thinks she is a lap dog and loves to sit on her foster Mom's lap. Abby just loves to be pet and get attention. She is still somewhat a puppy, at just over a year old, with puppy energy and she can be somewhat mischievous. She knows basic commands like "sit" "down" "off" and "come." She is very smart and very eager to please. She is crate trained and housebroken. Abby is good with children: she is around a 4 year old boy often and is gentle and playful with him.  Black Dog, Second Chance   Read more and Contact
