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.
Bella is a beautiful young female that is a Siamese mix with Torti points on her face. She was found in the shelter and she was out of time and those beautiful blue eyes spoke to us! She is 1-2 years old and her story was that she was left behind in a house or apartment and the shelter had to get a court order to have the land lord go in and save her. She was very thin when finally rescued and spent the next 5 days on a hold for a owner. Bella has a shorter tail and we are not sure why.

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

Magnificent Mindy here! Boy when my cage door opens my beautiful green eyes light up! I am all about the humans here. I got toys and treats galore in my cage but if a human wants to play with me or take me out I'll pass it all up just to spend time with them. My favorite is when they scratch under my chin, it's the best feeling ever! If you're looking for a cat who is all about her human stop in at 184 Verona Street and ask for me, Mindy!

Meet Bobtail!  This guy is a real survivor. He has had a hard time fending for himself and was outcast by his "team mates" who he romped around with.
Now Bobtail might be a little ruffled on the outside but he is a true diamond in the ruff. He is about 10 years old and has really mellowed out. He is ready to mellow out with someone and is nice and tame now. He has tasted the outdoor life long enough and wants someone to let him stay inside with him to give him overdue love and affection. This poor sweet senior had to have all his teeth extracted by the immense love of the person who rescued him. He is free to seniors. All normal adoption incentives apply!)   www.LiFelineAdoptions.org
Elena Del Rubio was born about October 6, 2014 and will probably weigh in the 25 lb. range when full grown.  She and her sisters were just released from a puppy mill as they didn't sell fast enough and became too old for a pet store shelf.  We think they are perfect and we are sure you will too.   They are fun, playful, and learning to adore us humans.  They've not had a ton of interaction until now, but are soaking it up and learning so much!  They are striving toward house training, but you will probably have some work to do in that area upon moving to a new home.  Any one of these girls will be so worth it!  As for breed we were told Japanese Chin and Jack Russell, ok, seems to be some Chin in the faces (or maybe pug???) but we are leaving toward a Border Collie rather than a Jack Russell.  These millers don't care what they breed together as long as it creates cute pups.  Joyful Rescues   Siblings also listed on link to left ................... boys and girls

Meet Oscaretta a 7 year old, spayed Domestic Short Hair. Hi, I'm Oscaretta! I greet every human who walks past my cage! The humans here love me and well, I love them. They give me great chin and head scratches. I imagine myself in a home lying in front of the window while basking in the sun! Ahhhh sounds refreshing! I am the kind of gal who would love nothing more than to have my own home and human. Let's see if we're a match!  Rochester Animal Services    This Week's Featured Cats

Annie is about a 2 years old. She is house-trained 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 Please welcome Jackie.  She is a black and tan spayed GSD approximately 18 months old.  Jackie weighs about 60 lbs and is just the cutest little girl.  She was found as a stray in the southern tier and was not claimed by her people.

 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

Meet Powder, a 1 year old, Neutered, Pit Bull mix.  Hello! My name is Powder. I would really love a forever home with you. Right now I'm getting lots of love from the volunteers who spend time with me and take me on walks around the neighborhood. Good thing, because I really like my kennel clean, and it's so much fun sniffing around the park! I am super curious and friendly, and I've been told I'm a rockstar in the play yard. I love all my doggie friends. Come to 184 Verona St and say hi! Powder’s shelter number at RAS is 28062346.t   Rochester Animal Services. This Week's Featured Dogs

Gizmo (Papillon (Chihuahua Mix) is new to rescue but this is what we know so far. He came to us because of owners allergies and no fault of his own. Gizmo is a very sweet little guy and is trying to figure out his new situation. He is doing very well with all of his 4 legged foster brothers and sisters. Gizmo will be going in shortly for all his vetting and to be neutered as well. As he is not yet neutered right now he is doing some typical marking of his new territory Buffalo Pug & Small Breed Rescue

Lilo is an approximately 1 year old Female Dutch (best guess) rabbit looking for her forever home. Her best friend and sister is Stitch who she would love to be adopted with, but is ok with being adopted alone. Lilo is a little shy and needs someone who will be able to take their time to get to know her. She loves playing outside in her playpen. Her favorite treat is some nice fresh lettuce. Lilo would make a good addition to any family. Experience with rabbits is preferred, but not required. There is a $40 adoption donation for Lilo, and $75 for both Lilo and Stitch.

Kibby is a sweet, gentle, and affectionate, 2 year old, Pitt Bull Terrier. Despite not having the easiest start in life, he loves people and is eager to please. Kibby is smart and food motivated, so he picks up new skills easily. We’ve been going to weekly training class and he’s doing quite well.  Kibby knows “sit”, “paw”, “down”, and “touch”. He walks well on an E-Z Walk Harness and enjoys going on leisurely strolls where he can send and receive “pee-mail.” He doesn’t chase squirrels or birds, but when on leash, he can be reactive to other dogs. We are working on training to ease Kibby’s reactivity, and he’s been making good progress.  Read a lot More!     Nuts for Mutts Rescue, Inc

Ace is a senior at least 7 years old, but possibly older. He is front declawed. Loves to be carried and petted. He's social and loving. Great with men, women and children! He has been sharing a room with rotating litters of kittens and does awesome with them, but he has met several adult cats and does NOT do ok with them. We feel he would likely not do well with dogs. He does have a mid-range heart murmur, but it does not affect his quality of life and he does not require any medication or special treatment at this point. His 2 bad teeth were extracted, and he is feeling great! Ace has the cutest grumpy cat face, which is really funny because he is SO incredibly sweet! This pet has been combo-tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV, received a rabies vaccination along with all other age-appropriate vaccinations and is altered.    G.R.A.S.P (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) - (585) 234-1953   Kovu is a 3 year old,  blue nose pit who was surrendered due to housing restrictions. He is a very affectionate and happy dog that constantly wags his tail and will follow you wherever you go. His favorite things include playing outside with you and getting belly rubs-- he will literally plop down, roll over, and expose his belly whenever he thinks he might get one! He doesn't like cats but does well with other similarly-sized dogs. Kovu has an odd habit of grunting and groaning a lot, especially when he's playing or if he's getting a really exceptional belly rub. He needs a forever home with someone that can show him some discipline because Kovu likes to rough-house a bit, with frequent pawing and mouthing. He will also need daily exercise. His adoption fee is $275 which includes neuter, vaccinations and microchip.. Read More     G.R.A.S.P (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) - (585) 234-1953
