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.

February 24  is world spay day . . . please do the right thing and spay or neuter your pet! http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/spay_day/

Bruno, an adult male, Pomeranian,  is a sweet and fluffy little guy who is in a little pain right now due to some much needed dental work. Bruno is scheduled to see the vet early this week to get him feeling better and ready for adoption. This little guy would love a nice warm lap to curl up on!   Volunteers For Animals / Genesee County  Email
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. And someone bit him hard enough to transmit FIV to him. He has also lost half of his tail and his left ear was clipped when he was neutered as a Trap Neuter and Release cat.
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. (continued next square)
He is learning how to play all over again without them and is making great strids!  Bobtail is be is being fostered by a wonderful woman whose mother will be moving in and she is extremely allergic. Therefore, we are trying to assist her in finding a nine furever home for Bobtail as soon as possible. He is warm, affectionate and loves to have his chin scratched and be petted behind the ears. Adopt him and find out how much more adorable traits he has!
 Having FIV is not a death sentence. Google it. These cats need love, kindness, good nutrition and low stress and they can live many years. Wouldn't it feel great to help a kitty who has some things going against him?    He is free to seniors. All normal adoption incentives apply!

Hunter seems LOVE kids. There was a family with 3 young kids that stopped to visit with him, he was so sweet and affectionate with the youngest boy, giving him nice kisses and not knocking him over. Hunter is not bothered by all the snow and cold weather. He loves fresh, cold air and walks very politely on his leash. Hunter also appears to be housetrained.  Rochester Animal Services  This Week's Featured Dogs   
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  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

Hey folks, thanks for stopping by! I'm relaxing in my cage while my furever family comes to get me! Is it you? Let's find out! The streets were cold and I couldn't relax anywhere. Some nice folks picked me up and brought me here. I'm your all around kinda cat. I like trying to catch the laser light or some mice, play ones of course! The treats here are spectacular too! I don't have to do anything either, I sit here and they give them to me. I enjoy a good massage from humans too! Start at my chin and work your way to my belly, boy I love that! While I love all of those things, nothing can beat a warm home, my own human and a lap to cuddle on. Stop in to meet me!

Oreo is a 12 year old female Beagle mix who's owners could not take her when they moved.  She weighs 25 pounds. She's perky for her age so she'll be a good walking buddy.  We think she'll do best in a quiet home where any children are age 14 and over.  She's going to meet any dogs you currently have living with you to make sure it's a good match.  Oreo is available free of charge to approved adopters, age 60 and over, through Lollypop Farm's Seniors-for-Seniors program.

Coffee is a very devoted and loyal companion to his people once he know he can trust them. The start of his life left him with not much reason to trust but he still is willing and WANTS too ! In the beginning he will be stand-offish and defensiive, his first few days in foster he hid behid the furniture uncertain of his surroundings or what was to become of him I am sure. Left to relax and explore on his own he slowly came out of his shell and blossomed into the snuggle bug he is. Coffee loves to sit next to you, burrow down into the covers and keep your legs and feet warm at night Buffalo Pug & Small Breed Rescue

CAN YOU HELP? OUTDOOR/ BARN CATS ALWAYS AVAILABLE
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.,email Bugsy.

Are you looking for the perfect dog?  Well, look no further because our little Winnie is about as perfect as they come!  She is about 5 years old, 25 pounds, housebroken, well-mannered and quiet.  Winnie gets along with the other dogs in her foster home.  We were told she didn’t get along with cats, but she has shown zero cat aggression since she’s been with us.  Winnie came to rescue because her person passed away and her hospice caregiver contacted Nuts for Mutts to help find her a new home   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?. Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions   Email
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
