Adopt a Cat

 

Free Adoption Events

These one-day events apply to all cats and dogs that are available for adoption on the event date and are made possible by support from charitable organizations and private businesses. 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.

Donate to Boost Adoptions

Some donors have expressed interest in sponsoring the adoption of a particular animal. Others may want to contribute to medical expenses or special needs for other animals. These may be animals that have been with us for longer than others or for animals with some special needs that may be deterring adopters. In either case, such contributions help place pets into new homes quicker. If you are interested in making a donation toward a specific animal's adoption fees or expenses related to medical or special needs care, please notify us at AnimalServices@cityofrochester.gov so that we can ensure that your contribution is allocated for those particular purposes.

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.
