Adopt a cat

Adoptable cats

If there are no cats listed, please do not fret. That means that the cats are getting reunited with owners or adopted into new homes right away. Check back frequently to see who might be looking for a new home with you. Also, check out the adoptable pets in need of re-homing at our Home to Home site. 

Adoption fee: $35


Visit these adorable companions and other homeless pets at the Animal Services Center:
184 Verona Street, Rochester, New York 14608 
Monday through Sunday, 12 p.m. - 4 p.m.
(Adoptions and visitations end 30 minutes before closing each day)
The shelter is also closed select holidays (New Year's Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day), as well as the third Tuesday of each month for staff and volunteer training.
For more information, contact our office at (585) 428-7274 or email us.  

If you do not find that special match today, please check back with us frequently as new cats come in daily. Also, consider contacting one of our area's other shelters or pet rescue organizations. By adopting from our partners, you may be facilitating the transfer of another cat from Rochester Animal Services to one of those organizations. You can also use the Petco Love Lost tool provided below to search for adoptable animals in our areas. Saving lives is a community effort, and we are making great things happen together.  

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 deter adopters. In either case, such contributions help place pets into new homes quicker. If you are interested in donating toward a specific animal's adoption fees or expenses related to medical or special needs care, please notify us at so that we can ensure that your contribution is allocated for those particular purposes.

When making an online donation to a specific animal, please explain the purpose and enter the animal's name and reference number in the memo field.
