I’M CAT OF THE WEEK AND MY ADOPTION FEE IS 50% OFF THIS WEEK!

Hey there, I can understand your confusion, people often mistake me for the stunt double in the movie, Black Panther. But that’s understandable, cause I’m sleek, suave, agile and an acrobat extraordinaire. I may have the look of a majestic leopard, but I’m all parlor panther for sure. I prefer couches and kitchens to jungles and the savannah, but I’ll bring a touch of the wild into your life for sure. And isn’t that one of the reasons all cats are so magical? Energetic and playful, yes I am, but when the time’s right I can lounge and veg with the best of them. I’d do ok with other pets, proper introductions please, and also with respectful kiddos. This dude’s so ready for his forever home and  a spectacular forever fam; could it be you?

I’M DOG OF THE WEEK AND MY ADOPTION FEE IS 50% OFF THIS WEEK

Hi, my name is Celo and I’m a 2-year-old male. On December 7th, my life changed and I was surrendered to the nice people at Rochester Animal Services. So.. I’m still trying to get up that great big hill of hope. I just know there’s something new and positive on the horizon. I’m keeping my head up and I’m surrounded by so many cheerful hearts, and they remind me everyday how much they truly love me. I have been attending play yard and am still trying to take it all in. I would rather be with my human friends and take things slow and steady. Is that ok with you? Please understand and when you come to visit me, ask all the questions you’d like. The staff and volunteers have my best interest at heart. Let your arms be my sweet surrender, and let’s continue this journey together.

THE PLAY YARD

If you would love to adopt a rescue dog, but are hesitant to visit the shelter to see them, you can watch a play group at The Play Yard at Rochester Animal Services.
