Welcome to Bugsy's Animal Network.   My  mission, and that of our many contributors, is to promote the well-being and humane treatment of all animals, through our support of greater Rochester, New York, area shelters and rescue organizations.  Please note we do not take in pets, only promote those in local area organizations.       Email Bugsy & Judy  

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.

SPECIAL KITTY: See photo to the left!   Ellison is 17 years old and needs a home.  His owner is moving and due to multiple transitions for her move along with Ellison's age, it's not in Ellison's best interest to move with her. He was originally found in Ellison Park - hence the name.  He is extremely sweet and affectionate and gets along with dogs.  I think he would be great for a senior person.    For information contact Kathy Smith, Colony Caretaker for Habitat for Cats.  Bugsy's Note:  Kathy devotes her life to ferals.  Ellison is not a feral, but belongs to a friend of Kathy's.  Email Kathy kathysmith5252@gmail.com
Maizy is about  1 year old, 27 lb, fox hound/miniature pincher mix (best guess). She is very low key, completely house broken and crate trained. One of her favorite things to do is hang outside and lay in the sun. She gets along well with other dogs and I think she would be fine with a cat with slow, proper introductions.  
Maizy is really the perfect dog. She is independent, yet sweet and affectionate. She is very easy going and just goes with the flow. If you think Maizy would be the perfect dog for you, apply now because this sweet girl will be scooped up quickly.Blue Moon Meadows  585-624-9328.
With Cam IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!!!!  Cam was born about December 9, 2009 and weighs about 11 pounds.  No, kidding, this guy is CUTE!!!  He won our hearts over shortly after arriving.  He is going to make someone very, very, happy.  I can't imagine how he was given up because his humans were too busy, but if that was the case then he is better off here because we all love him.  He has some anxiety when being left alone and he truly needs to have his humans around much of the time. Cam can be around other dogs just fine, but he cannot be on his humans lap around other dogs.  He can be near his human on the floor, etc., but not on the lap.   His main purpose in life is snuggling and loves to be under blankets.  Read More.  Joyful Rescues     716 372-3661

 Sampson is a 5-1/2-year-old Pit mix, and he weighs 55 pounds. He can be a bit cautious when meeting new people, but is a sweet and loyal best friend, once he gets to know you. Sampy is a staff favorite, because he walks nicely on a leash, and he enjoys giving hugs and cuddling with us. We think Sampson will do best in a home without small children or cats. Sampson must meet any resident dog(s) in a potential new home. Here at the shelter, he seems tolerant of most other dogs, and has had several "girlfriends" that he has enjoyed playing outside with. They have all been adopted - now it's Sampson's turn to find a forever home!  Sampson is the "Pick" of Deana (Dog Care Attendant at The Humane Society of Wayne County) and she knows her dogs!

Hello! My name is Smurf. I was surrendered to the city shelter when my owner had to go away for a long time and could no longer take care of me. I was a little nervous at first of what was going on. There were a lot of dogs around me, making all kinds of noise so I was very shy but now I am in a safe home and I even have a foster sister.  I am about 1 1/2 years old and weigh 58 pounds.  Some of my favorite things are playing with toys, laying on my back in the grass, sitting in the sunshine and being loved on by my foster parents.  Read More.   Nuts for Mutts Rescue, Inc
Oliver is a approximately 2 years old and is a beautiful male Terrier mix. He came from a shelter in Ohio so sadly we do not have any information on his past, we can only assume in his short time he was not shown much kindness. He was reported to have been picked up as a stray, but does exhibit some behaviors that lead us to believe he may have been abused. He is leary of strangers and takes a bit to warm up, he is also somewhat insecure and needs reassurance. These are things we are working with a trainer on helping him overcome and learn to be more confident. Oliver in his foster home is happy and full of life, he loves to be with his people and is very affectionate.!  Buffalo Pug & Small Breed Rescue
Indigo, or Indie for short, is an approximately 2 year old pit bull who was surrendered to Pitty Love Rescue VERY pregnant. Only 3 short days after coming to rescue, Indie gave birth to 11 beautiful puppies. Amazingly all survived and are thriving. She even spent a weekend with a litter of 11 orphaned puppies to make sure they had full bellies!.  Read more.   Pitty Love Rescue,  (585) 376-0290; Email

Sheis to be house-trained and not very fond of her crate but she does eventually settle down. She likes to play with other dogs on her terms and ignores the cats here. her adoption fee is $250.00 and she has been spayed, vetted and microchipped.  SusieQ Dog ResQ   papillon1254@rochester.rr.com Bella is a One year old Jack Russel Pug mix looking for a home. her adoption fee is $250.00 and she has been spayed and fully vetted.SusieQ Dog ResQ papillon1254@rochester.rr.com

Bree & Drea came to Keller's Kats Rescue after their owner passed away. They are bonded and we would love top see them adopted together. They are timid at first but are warming up at their foster home! They are good with dogs, cats, and kids

Cupid came to Keller's Kats with half of her leg missing. The rest of the leg was amputated. We believe this injury happened while she was a stray outside. Cupid is a fun loving cat with tons of personality. She will let you know when she is not happy. She IS NOT a fan of the vet!! We are not sure how she will do with other cats--she has hissed when the other foster cats are on the opposite side of the door. She will do best in a home with older children and possibly 1 other dog or cat with the proper introductions.   Keller's Kats Rescue, Inc.    Call  or text 585-802-6454 (Karla)  Emai

Meet Jack Jr! He is a Jack Russell, Chihuahua Dachsund mix. He is 14 weeks old and ready to find a forever home that will train him to be a great dog! He loves to snuggle and love on his fosters, but also like to play with other dogs. Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions    Email
Porthos was one of four males in a litter of six born June 1, 2015. They’ve lived in a foster home since birth. He’s basically all black with a few tufts of white on his chest. All the cats in this litter have relatively short hair, but their coats are buttery soft. Porthos has a little extra fluff to his coat and a debonair look to him. Like all the cats in this litter, Porthos is a flopper, meaning he likes to walk a few steps in front of his human companions and flop down, presenting himself to be showered with affection. Porthos is a quiet, calm kitty. He rarely meows but will purr when he’s being petted. He likes to play but would not wreak havoc in your home. He loves people, gets along with other cats and even dogs.  Bugsy's Note:  Notice his siblings on the website - very beautiful kitties with Greek names !  Animal Service League 
Want to be part of a wonderful and touching story? This could be your chance! Do you recognize the value and gift in adopting a pet for them and their need, along side your own legitimate need for furry love and companionship? Haven't we all seen Rudolph classic treasure made in 1964 (yup I still watch it EVERY year and I was born same year Rudolph was!). Then we all know about the "Island of Misfit Toys" and the rescue of the toys there.There is an island not too far from here with cats on it, that all need homes. Two of them are in a way-station, foster home, who came from that Island. While all the "toys" there are well cared for loved, don't they deserve their own forever home  Continued in next cube............
Visit our site and read about these two. Serenity has a "cloudy eye" from previous corneal ulcer and Bruno has a limp ear and is overweight (on a diet, lost 3 lbs so far) and both are FIV+. Read about FIV on our site, it is NOT a death sentence. With love, low stress and good diet they can live as long as normal cats. Plus, there are some GREAT immune boosting products to help them stay healthy available now!  Go see Serenity and Bruno's story!  www.LifelineAdoptions.org  www.LiFelineAdoptions.org
Meet Miles. Miles has been vet checked and  tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. Kitten adopters must agree to have kittens spayed or neutered by 6 months of age..  Humane Society of Livingston County 585-234-2828   Hello all you Brittany lovers!  Let me take a moment to introduce myself.  My name is Finn and I am a 5 year old, 45 lb,, orange and white neutered male.  I am housebroken, crate trained, micro chipped, and up to date  on all vaccinations, and in good health!  I came into rescue when I was found all alone with no one to care for me.  All I need is a loving new home and family to spend the rest of my life with.  National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network Contact Robin Flood, NY Co-Coordinator at email, or 585-346-0271
Meet Colby. This boy is 6.4 weeks old as of May 3 and has been provided a first vaccination and worming. He is 2 lbs at this age and sadly we get the puppies from a lady who will not spay her dog. We have begged her and even offered to buy the female dog from her. She does not care and the female has had two litters since October 2015.    The mom is a doxie and the father is a Chichi who is on our Petfinder now. He showed up when her dog was in heat and never left so she gave him to us. No one was looking for him and he had been at her house for two months. He was not wearing any collar or tags. Look  under Blackie on our petfinder page Read a lot more.    Duffy's Friends, Inc If you would like to add alot of fun and energy to your house, Brady is your boy!  He is a very smart boy that learns new things quickly. He has made a lot of adjustments in a short time.  From his reactions to alot of every day things in a home, it became apparent that he never lived in a house before!  He has settled in nicely and is easy to live with. Brady is friendly with everyone that comes to the house.  Brady is being fostered with an older dog that he loves.  He does have too much energy for her at times with the age difference but that is handled easily with some supervision.  He is also being fostered with two cats that he likes to chase, so he would do better in a cat free home. Due to Brady's enthusiasm and physical play we recommend a home with older or teenage children only.

George is our resident loveable lunk. He is a Great Pyrenees, about 4 years old and came to us from a shelter in Kentucky. He is about 3 1/2 feet tall (standing on all 4 feet) and weighs only 80lbs. He is very very long, and his tail sticks straight back and wags like a rutter on a boat.  He arrived to us in very rough shape, groom-wise. He had ticks and fleas that they treated him for, and we are in the process of getting him groomed (he was just neutered, so we have to wait for him to heal). His personality is fantastic! He is a very mellow dog, and really loves children, people, cats (he leaves them alone), and dogs. He wags his tail often, so he has a habit of knocking things over (again, the 'lunk' personality). When he drinks, you'd swear he was a camel - he can drink about a quart in one shot, and it can be messy with his jowls.weet if given a chance to get to know you and has a love of toys!     Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions    Email
Olivia and Lily Anna were turned in together and are sisters. It would be great to keep them together, they have a long history even though they are only a year old. The person who turned them in took them in 6 months ago after a neighbor moved and dumped them outside. They took the sisters to the vet, got their shots and had them spayed. But sadly, due to some serious medical problems, their guardian angel could not keep them and had to bring them to the Shelter. It was very sad but we knew it had to be. The girls have adjusted quite well to the Shelter. They are wonderful cats and deserve another guardian angel. Both cats are good with children and dogs. Olivia is very sweet and loving and Lily Anna is quite playful. We know it is a long shot but it is worth a try to keep them together. So help us get the word out for Olivia and Lily Anna. Thanks! A donation has been made to pay for $40 on their adoption fee if they go together.  Volunteers For Animals / Genesee County  Email   Petco Batavia
 Pixie was rescued from a life outside, fending for herself. She has beautiful soft fur and she loves to be petted. She is very sweet! She gets incredibly excited when its€™s time for a wet food snack or treats. Now that she has started relaxing in her foster home her playful nature is coming out. We think Pixie would do fine as an only pet, or in a home with one other nice cat. If they get too close to her personal space she gives them a little bop with the paw to remind them to back up, but then carries on with her day.   G.R.A.S.P (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) - (585) 234-1953 
Layla is a petite 55 lb, 1 year old pit mix. She is a med-high energy dog who loves to play with her toys and is a very quick learner. Layla loves her humans and absolutely loves to snuggle! She is good with cats and prefers a more laid back dog, but does well with almost any dog. Ideally, we would like to see her have a canine sibling as she likes to follow their lead. Layla will require a family with a 4 ft fence or higher as she has never shown any interest in climbing the outside fence, but has climbed a 4 ft pen that she was kept in inside G.R.A.S.P (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) - (585) 234-1953
