Adopt a Cat

Free Adoption Event

July 8, 2017 will be our next free adoption day!

These one-day events apply to all cats and dogs available for adoption on the event date and are made possible by a grant from Petco Foundation. Adopters can have their names added to wait lists for stray animals with holding periods that expire after the event date but such animals will not be included in the fee-waiver.

Please remember to bring a pet carrier to ensure that cats can leave on the scheduled release date and make it to their new homes safely.

Thank You PetSaverShelter-Feeding-Program-log

The City of Rochester is grateful to PetSaver Healthy Pet Superstore for its donation of all of the cat litter and pet food used at the Animal Services Center. This support enables Animal Services to purchase veterinary supplies and shelter enrichment items that would not otherwise be possible.
