Ready to adopt (or foster)?
When you see a pet you are interested in, complete the appropriate Adoption/Foster form:
Once your application is received an Adoption Counselor will follow up with you as soon as they can.
Attend an adoption event:
Petco Greece (2373 Ridge Rd West, Rochester NY 14626): Thursdays 6pm-8pm and Saturdays 11am-3pm.
We also try to have an adoption event at Petco on the second Sunday of each month but the hours vary depending on volunteer availability. Please check our event calendar to confirm.
We try to have as many cats and dogs at the adoption event as possible.
Cat adoption fees:
- Kittens six months and younger $135 for one kitten, $235 for two kittens
- Cats over 6 months $100
- Seniors 8 years and older $50
Note: kittens adopted between 8 and 12 weeks of age require an additional $50 deposit. This is refunded once proof of 2nd round of shots (distemper booster & rabies) is provided. We must do this because we have to document that all adopted cats received their rabies vaccination which is not normally done until 12 weeks of age.
All cats are combo-tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, receive all age-appropriate vaccinations and are altered.
Dog adoption fees:
- Dog adoption fee varies and is listed in each bio.
Adoption fees help offset some of the expenses incurred, since all of G.R.A.S.P.'s animals are examined by a local vet, receive all age-appropriate vaccinations and are spayed/neutered.
Please be aware that we are not able to adopt to anyone living more than one hour away from Rochester, NY. Some of these fur children came from bad situations and to be sure that they are in the right environment, home visits are necessary.
Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment and should be entered into as such.
Future expenses should be carefully taken into consideration.
G.R.A.S.P. reserves the right to approve or deny any application.
