City of Rochester

News Release 

(Friday, Feb. 25, 2022) –Rochester Animal Services is recruiting community members who would like to help get lost pets home. Volunteers who become lost pet advocates will receive lawn signs which identify them as a resource for their neighbors to use when a pet goes missing or when a neighbor finds a lost pet.

Lost pet advocates will be provided with microchip scanners, lost and found resource packets, other supplies, and training to help get lost pets home without having them enter the shelter.

Rochester residents interested in serving as lost pet advocates for their neighborhoods may contact Animal Services at (585) 428-7274 or
