Sonam came into the dog pound in such bad shape they thought he was an old dog. Once he got cleaned up and was fed regularly he blossomed into this beautiful dog. He is a very sweet boy who loves other dogs and get along with cats but will chase them if they run.He has some motor skills issues but gets around just fine. A video can be provided if you'd like to see him in action!! He would do best with a fenced in yard.  SusieQ Dog ResQ (formerly Another  Chance Dog Ranch)  papillon1254@rochester.rr.com 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 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

Hello! My name is Opal the AMAZINGLY sweet girl who recently entered the shelter. I am a female lab mix and 10 months old. I had to have my picture taken like this because all I want to do is snuggle up to you and roll on my belly when you come into my run with me. I am a great pup and will make a terrific family pet. I will adjust well to any family dynamic and would do great with kids. I am current on vaccines, will be spayed and I am heartworm negative. Scottsville Veterinary Adoptions Lulu has been with Rudy's for a week now. She is a super sweet girl. Lulu is good in the house, and in the yard. She is obedient, knows sit , come and kennel. She has been good in the crate when we leave but also has been trustworthy when we are out and she is left uncrated.  Lulu can be a couch potato, but as she has recovered from her spaying she has started to initiate play with our 2 dogs. She loves rolling in the snow (in abundance this winter). Lulu likes being with her people and considers it heaven to be petted or scratched behind the ears.Lulu would be a loyal and loving companion. Please consider opening your heart and your home to this beautiful girl.  Approved adopters may contact the foster home at Email   Rudy's Rescue - Upstate NY Labrador Retriever Rescue
JayZee was picked up running around the parking lot of a local flooring store. He is such a cute little guy. He loves belly rubs -- is a bit intimidated at first by other dogs but gets along well with them. He is between 1 and 2 and weighs under 15 lbs.   Mary:   BlueMoon Meadows; 585-624-9328   My name is Bugsy and I am 3 years old and am a Pittbull / Terrier mix.   I am a sweet boy who loves attention and is eager to please! I love to run and play, but I am also a lap loving snuggler who would watch TV with you for hours. I am not a big barker or noise maker...I am rather quiet and just want your attention and love whenever you can give it to me :) I currently eat 2x a day, I am house trained and am also crate/kennel trained. As sweet as I am with humans,  Going to the Dogs Rescue
Valentino is now 10 months old and has been in foster care for 7 months!  His Mom and sibling got adopted. He is a sweet boy that has seen many family holidays come and go without finding a home to call his own. He had a rough start in life, coming from a local puppy mill, underweight and afraid. At home, he enjoys playing with the other dogs in the house and can go, go, go if you let him. He likes quiet cuddle time too and chewing on his chew bones and toys. When first meeting someone he is shy.... but we are sure once home and given the attention, he will be a faithful and lifelong best friend to some lucky person/family. Email  Marjorie   All Creatures Big and Small   Note - On an  approved home he can be transported to Rochester
Meet Sammy the snowshoe who we found in the shelter. He is two years old and sweet and loveable - likes other cats. He dislikes dogs so much that he can never live with dogs.  He is very affectionate, playful and fun to be around. Because he dislikes dogs so much the person adopting him must be cats only. We are positive that he can not live with dogs because his foster home had kind dogs that were use to cats and he was not a happy boy. We moved him to a cat only foster home and he is super around other cats. He is living with 2 older cats and is very happy. He loves to cuddle, uses the litter box and will make someone a wonderful cat. Snow shoes are a wonderful breed please read up on them!  Email   Duffy's Friends, Inc


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
Candi  (black and white, shown with friend) is a young pup that walks well on a leash and appears kennel trained. She is a very sweet girl that would love to snuggle and would enjoy doing that on the couch with you! Candi is smart so obedience is important for her to funnel her intelligent into proper doggie behavior. This would also benefit her and her new family build a strong loving bond. Candi is enjoying her time with the other shelter dogs playing in the play yard; you should come over to see her play! Come over to meet this unique looking gal!

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!!!!!!

Meet Freckles, a 3 year old DSH and is our Foster cat of the week and her adoption fee will be offered at 50% off.

CIf you would like to meet Freckles, please call the shelter at 585-428-7274 to set up a time to meet with her.  Rochester Animal Services   This weeks featured cats at RAS   also  RAS Foster Cats      Bugsy's Note:  I met Freckles and her Foster Dad, Mike, at a Meet in Greet in Webster.   She is a sweetheart and adapted very well to the stress situation of sitting in a cage in the middle of a pet store on Saturday.   Please call - she is a pretty girl and so sweet. 
Daffodil is a pretty little girl born 4/9/13. She is the kind of kitty who wants to be with you all the time. She wants to be held all the time and will follow her foster mom everywhere. She gets along great with other cats and dogs. Daffodil needs a home with someone who has time to give her attention. She would be great for a little girl or boy who wants a cuddle buddy or an older person who is home and wants a constant companion. She is just the sweetest little girl on earth.  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

Her smushy little face is hard to resist!   Pitty Love Rescue,  (585) 376-0290; Email Felix is a handsome buff tabby with white. He was born 8/12/13. He enjoys being held and pet.

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.

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.

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  Zoey  is between 8 mos and 1 year old and a very loving dog. She is spayed and has all her vaccinations and is ready for a family to love her. She is housebroken and goes to the door but as a young dog you still need your crate while you are at work. She would be best as a companion dog to another dog as she likes to run with her border collie friend in the foster home. This is a good way to exercise you pet - get her a friend!  Her foster home thinks she is a great dog and if someone is looking for a beautiful girl this is the dog for you. When her hair grows out she has golden highlights and apricot frosted tips to her coat. She might be a Tibetan terrier mix which is really a herding dog and not a terrier. We believe there might be something else in her but the mix is absolutely beautiful as well as her inner personality.   beautiful.   Email   Duffy's Friends, Inc

Selena was surrendered by her owners to Lollypop Farm because they were moving and couldn't take dogs with them. Being an older dog, Selena was very nervous and scared at Lollypop, so Nuts was called to get her out of there. Selena has fit in very well in her new foster home. Typical Chihuahua, she likes to be the boss. She gets along well with the other dogs and the cats. She walks excellent on a leash and is semi-housebroken (we use piddle pads). She has her bursts of energy, but she likes to spend most of her time hanging out with her humans. Due to her small size, Selena should go to a home with no children.  .    Nuts for Mutts Rescue, Inc

LiFeline Adoptions is trying to find a forever home for these two absolutely adorable and totally affectionate and sweet FIV+ cats.
We can place them separate which they currently are or do a combination placement of both with assistance on their adjustment and meeting. The FIV virus is similar to the human AIDS virus. It stand for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. However, it is important to know that with low stress, good diet and lots of love, these cats can have a normal lifespan. There is also a product thought to boost their immune system. We have placed a number of FIV+ cats with kind caring individuals who know they might not have them for 10 or 15 years but are acting out of kindness to these animals who do have something stacked against them which is why they are special needs.lease consider giving one or two of these amazingly loveable cats a home and as much love for as long as possible for them. It will take a special individual. Is this you?? You can see the pix,
bio's and videos on our website www.LiFelineAdoptions.org
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 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
Shadoe is a ten year old, male, Beagle & Dachshund  mix that was dumped in a kill shelter by his owners. We can't stand to hear when this happens to a dog who's only crime was getting old. Shadow spent his first 10 years giving his people nothing but love and loyalty. We wish they could have given him the same in his golden years. But, their loss is our gain. We're happy to have this gentle soul in one of our foster homes until he can find someone to appreciate him and love him for the rest of his days.  Email LindsayBuffalo Pug & Small Breed Rescue     
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  
What a long road it’s been for Yahtzee. He came to ABC in such rough shape that that the vet prepared Yahtzee’s foster family for the possibility that he might not live. Now, more than a year and a half later, he’s made a full recovery and has blossomed into the dog he was always meant to be. Yahtzee wants nothing more than to enjoy the company of people and/or dogs. He doesn’t do well in isolation and will howl when he’s lonely. He is great with all dogs, strangers, kids, will chase the cat (but is too slow to actually catch them). He is very submissive and responds immediately to corrections.  ABC Basset Rescue
Zooey is a one year old brown tabby female. She loves to hang out on the "cat tree", but always sets aside some time to chase a toy mouse and zoom about, then get a belly rub from her human. She would love to get her daily belly rubs from you!
Her adoption fee is $35 and she has been spayed, vaccinated, FIV/Leukemia tested negative, and received parasite control and a microchip. Four-Legged Friends Animal Adoptions, Inc.,    585-953-1184
