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.
Lexi (Left), Leena (Center) and Ella (Right)
These are 3 of the cats that were left on the side of the road in a box.They have been through so much and are so bonded they need each other for comfort.  Ella is extremely loving and sweet. She loves attention and has become very playful with her foster friends, especially NoNo (she thinks he is cute).  Leena and Lexi are very sweet and enjoy some love but they are still trying to adjust to their surroundings.  We would like to see Leena and Lexi get adopted together because they are VERY bonded and are always cuddled together.

Meet Timothy!  Timmy is a 2 year old, black and white, medium haired male who is currently at the The Humane Society of Wayne County - main location Lyons.  Judy's note:  The shelter manager called me to ask to feature him because Tim, unfortunately, loves food.  He is in the main cat room, a place where the shelter can not restrict food.  He needs to go on a diet.  He either is running with the other cats or the shelter would have to lock him in a cage, which reduces any exercise.  He is really chubby, I hear, around 19 lbs!  Poor Tim.  Visit him at the shelter.   The Humane Society of Wayne County   315.946.3389
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 
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  Peeley, we think, is between 6-8 years old. He is shy and cautious upon first meeting but warms up quickly and is quiet and rarely barks. He is a people lover and enjoys being petted and having his ears scratched. He likes a tummy rub but his size and build make lying completely on his back difficult. Peeley is happy to be bathed and groomed although his fur is very short and he does not shed. He wants to be with people at all times and gets concerned when someone leaves. He is very social and enjoys company. He sleeps on his bed in the kitchen at night and when we leave the house. He is house trained and crate trained. He likes attention but is not pushy and usually is right next to you and watching or lying down. His favorite toys are a chew wheel, tennis ball and a rawhide bone. Read More     G.R.A.S.P (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) - (585) 234-1953

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

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
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
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?.

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 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.
