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.
JENNY - Spayed Female, Gray and White DSH, 2 years, a young mom.  Bugsy's Note:  This is a doll of a cat.  She went back to the shelter today from Webster Petsmart to get her ears checked.  She checked out ok -  No issues.  I think her "goth" eyeline, lipstick nose liner makes her striking.  Extremely lovable girl.  She is at the The Humane Society of Wayne County, but Judy is trying to get her back to Webster.   Great cat!
Benny is a young sweet boy who has had some shuffling around over the past year at no fault of his own and is now in a foster home. He is an enthusiastic boy who loves to play especially fetch and Frisbee. He is very smart and a quick learner. He knows sit, down, paw and is perfecting his manners on a leash but does appear house trained. He loves to play with other dogs and gets along with them well so if you are thinking about adding a playmate for your dog, Benny would be a great addition! He's showed off his skills in the agility training class, loves his treats, and aced the course with ease. Benny would love to attend obedience with his new family to funnel his intelligence as well as build a strong and lasting bond. If you would like to meet handsome Benny, please contact Rochester Animal Services at (585) 428-7274 to set up a time to see him.

Hello! My name is Todd the gorgeous male merle sheltie. I was surrendered by my owner because he could no longer care for me.  I am 2 years old.  I am a special needs boy as I a deaf and will need an owner to train me with hand signals. I do great with other dogs, but I will need to go to a home with no cats. I am current on vaccines, will be neutered, and I am heartworm negative.  Scottsville Veterinary Hospital and Pet Adoptions
Remi has been with us for almost a week. He is curious about his new world sniffing and exploring every nook and cranny in our yard and in our house. He is just over a year old and still has some puppy in him. Remi is a lab mix, reddish in color medium sized and is housebroken, crate trained, micro-chipped.   He is an active dog and loves running around and playing with our dogs in the back yard. He also gets and needs daily walks..  Rudy's Rescue
My name is Beyonce because I"m a big personality in a little package. My foster mom calls me "mini-kitty" because I am so petite. I love to run and play but I also love belly rubs and cuddles. I live in a foster home with dogs, cats and kids and I like them all. I don't want to leave here but I do want to get settled with my forever family soon. I am 2 years old and you may also want to consider my friend Shikara (cube above)  Bugsy's Note:  I think Beyonce and Shikara came to the shelter together.     Rochester Animal Services.

Jenkins who is affectionately known as Jinx by his foster family is the sweetest guy ever. He loves people and wants nothing more then to be with someone all the time. He is a total lap dog and loyal companion. He is a super good snuggler and sleeps under the covers at night keeping you nice and warm. He has only marked in the house a couple times, otherwise is doing wonderfully with housebreaking. He's great in the car and not to bad on a leash. He does not care for the crate at all and can jump most baby gates but we are working on it. Another issue jinx has had is he does not care for the male dogs in the home   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  
Buddy  is a 1 yr. old Cavalier King Charles  / Tibetan Spaniel mix. At least, that's what we now think.. He is neutered and super sweet. He makes for the perfect lap dog if you put him there, otherwise he does not get on the furniture. He is housebroken, crate trained, walks well on a leash, and doesn't give any attitude - he is a lover. He weighs 16 lbs likes other dogs very much . He is one of the best dogs we have had this year. Very social and very well balanced dog. We can't say enough good things and wish all the dogs we receive during the year were as nice as this guy!
One of our most experienced fosters— a dog connoisseur, if you will— says that this dog is one of the sweetest she has ever cared for. He seems to fit the Cav personality to a tee. He is so wonderful that we are sure who ever adopts him will feel like they won the lottery - Mr. Personality. A true gem!      Duffy's Friends, Inc

Ruby is a 10 year old female Bassett Hound/retriever mix who weighs 32 pounds.  She's long and low to the ground and loves having that long back scratched.  She's good on leash and still likes to play with toys and other dogs a bit.  We think she'll do best in a home where any children are age 10 and over.  She's also available free of charge to approved adopters, age 60 and over, through our Seniors-for-Seniors program.  Bring everyone, dogs included, to meet Ruby at Lollypop Farm. If you would like more information about Ruby,  please call 585-223-1330 or visit Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester at 99 Victor Rd. in Fairport, NY..
Mimi is a dear little girl who was found wandering and no one came into the shelter to look for her. Our vet aged her at 1-2 years old and Duffy's Friends has spayed her and provided all vaccinations, worming, heart worm testing. She is on flea preventative and now ready for her new home.  She is very playful and we feel that she is more like one year due to the puppy left in her. She is not yet used to living with other dogs in her home territory, so she can only go where she will be the only dog. When interacting with dogs outside the home, Mimi would love to play with them, but it's important that they are introduced slowly.   Read more. Email   Duffy's Friends, Inc
Miss Kitty is an 8 year old female domestic shorthair mix.  She was brought in as a stray and it seems as though she was out there for a while so her coat is a little raggedy but it's growing in nicely.  She's been checked out by our vets and had some dental work done so she's in good shape and ready to go to a new home.  She's a sweet, timid girl who would love a place to call her own.  Miss Kitty is available free of charge to approved adopters, age 60 and over, through Lollypop Farm's Seniors-for-Seniors program.  Come take her home!  If you would like more information about Miss Kitty (#23886185) please call 585-223-1330 or visit Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester at 99 Victor Rd. in Fairport, NY..
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
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 - 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.

Desiree is an incredibly sweet 1 year old girl who showed up on a kind lady's doorstep at the end of January, 2014. She was given daily food and a puppy crate in a front hall to snuggle in when the weather outside was too cold for survival. Currently, Desiree is in a foster home. She loves snuggles, belly rubs, and food.  She's very affectionate and loves to be the center of attention. She greets you when you come home and enjoys laying against or near you. She's not a big fan of dogs, so she'd do best in a cat only household, but if you give her the opportunity, she will brighten your life with her affection and sunny disposition.  Having FIV is not a death sentence or guarantee of illness.  With the right  nutrition, low stress and lots of love, these cats can live long happy healthy lives. These cats deserve the same chances as any other and most often end up living good lives and making folks very happy! Be a hero and give an less fortunate kitty a chance. .www.LiFelineAdoptions.org

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?.

Bogey was born about May 21 2011 and weighs about 35 lbs.  He is a Hound / Mixed short coat male.  CUTE in all his red freckles and speckles!   Bogey has been a very sweet boy and good with the other dogs.  He will adore his humans. 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
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
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
