Welcome to Bugsy's Animal Network.   My  mission, and that of our many contributors, is to promote the well-being and humane treatment of all animals, through our support of greater Rochester, New York, area shelters and rescue organizations.  Please note we do not take in pets, only promote those in local area organizations.       Email Bugsy & Judy  

Who Are Pet Celebrities?   The wonderful pets featured below are recommended by volunteers based on the most need, special
circumstances, or  simply overlooked and waiting in shelters the longest.  Please give them your consideration.  Many never get a home.
 Katie’s world has been turned upside down. The person she lived with since she was a puppy had to go into a nursing home. Katie’s extended family tried to keep her but she was very unhappy since she was used to someone being home with her all day. We promised the family we would find Katie a home where someone would be home with her the majority of the time. Katie is a smuggler and likes nothing more than to hang out with her people. Katie is house broken and walks well in a leash. Initially Katie will bark at men however she quickly warms up.  Are you the perfect home for Katie?  You won’t be sorry.  She is a Dachshund / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat)  Senior Female.  G.R.A.S.P (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) - (585) 234-1953  Blondie and Blue, born 6/26/19,  are bonded gray tabby sisters that are ready to find their forever home... together!  Blue enjoys being held like a human baby and loves to be carried around by her foster mom.  Blondie is a little bigger than her sister and is very passionate about food.  She loves cuddling and can be vocal when she’s happy or looking for attention. 
Blondie and Blue are excellent with other cats, kids, and babies.  These two sisters have so much love to give and are requesting a warm and cozy home together! Both have been combo-tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV, received all age-appropriate vaccinations and is altered. G.R.A.S.P (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) - (585) 234-1953

Pet Adoption Network’s 3000th rescue cat!!  She was one of many cats living outside an abandoned house with no shelter or food, possibly waiting for someone to return.  Her ears are frostbitten and are still healing.  She needs a little confidence building but loves belly rubs and lots of attention.  She is SO happy with her snuggly cat bed and a full food dish!

Phantom - 8 year old male whose family is moving and can't take him.  Phantom is a little upset by all of the changes in his life and is nervous with children.  He would like a calm home. Look at those eyes.

Zeus is a graduate of the Path to Home prison program and did very well. A 10 month old Hound Mix he is a friendly and energetic boy who enjoys his people and other dogs.  He does best playing with other dogs when there are no toys present.   His handler at the prison has said that when Zeus is not playing with him or the other dogs, he is pretty “chill” a lot of the time.   His picture does not do him justice as he is much more handsome in person.

Gov. Cuomo Signs Anti-declawing Law


Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has signed legislation banning the performance of declawing procedures on cats, making New York the first state to prohibit the practice. The bill takes effect immediately.

“Declawing is a cruel and painful procedure that can create physical and behavioral problems for helpless animals, and today it stops,” Governor Cuomo said. “By banning this archaic practice, we will ensure that animals are no longer subjected to these inhumane and unnecessary procedures.”
Declawing, also known as onychectomy, involves the removal of all or most of the last bone of each of the toes of the front feet, and tendons, nerves and ligaments that allow for normal

 

function of the paw are severed, resulting in intense and chronic pain and other serious medical or behavioral issues. According to the Governor’s office, declawing can lead to early-onset arthritis and prolonged back and joint pain.

Widget is a pretty, dilute calico. She is very shy, but enjoys having her chin scratched and will respond to attention once she trusts you. Widget was diagnosed with severe stomatitis, and it was suggested that her teeth be removed. She had a full mouth extraction, however it does not affect her health. She is able to eat a normal diet of dry food and it has not affected her appetite. Widget could even benefit from a diet as she is a bit overweight at this point. Her estimated date of birth is 7/7/13. Animal Service League      Bugsy's Note:  Chubby girl so cute!!!!!

This sweet, lovable girl is Allie!  Allie weighs 55 pounds and is about a year and a half old.  She is still a youngster, but is learning fast and working hard to please.  She has learned basic obedience commands and is crate and house trained.  Allie is reactive with other dogs and a strong puller when leash walked, and we are working hard with her to get her socialized and develop good walking manners.  Continued education will help Allie to be all she can be as she matures.  Her favorite things are running, playing with toys and snuggle up with her people on the couch. Nuts for Mutts Rescue, Inc
Allie has been waiting a long time.
Meet Larry. This sweet, shy boy would love a quiet home with no young children. He gets nervous with lots of kids running around. He also prefers women to men. Larry would do best with a laid back dog sibling to play with and to keep him company when his new family is not at home. He would also do best with a fenced in yard. He is house trained and good with cats. Larry loves to just be with his people.  SusieQ Dog ResQ   papillon1254@rochester.rr.com

Hershey is a 3-year-old love bug and walks great on a leash. He was surrender by a family that was moving and could not take him. In rescue, we call that moving won't take. He is a possible Wheaton Terrier / Poodle (vet suggestion) or a Border Terrier / Poodle. He is one of the cutest and nicest dogs we have had in our program. He has never lived with cats. He would do best with Allie who is listed on our site as she and he lived together for over three years in that home. The owner said they are related but we don't see that as they are very different in looks.  Update: He is housebroken and we are looking for another dog to be in the home as he loves dogs!

Gizmo is a handsome little guy and terrific snuggle buddy. 
Gizmo will need a patient home that understands Chihuahuas.  Gizmo is slow to trust strangers and meeting him will take some patience. With some patience and love, he will be your best friend.  Continual socialization and positive reinforcement with new guests will do wonders for him.  Gizmo enjoys walks and is working on his leash manners.  He also enjoys playing fetch.  Gizmo loves to snuggle under a blanket with his humans.   He is house trained and crate trained.  Although he would love to share your bed with you. Because Gizmo can also have a grumpy side, a furever home with older children would be best Black Dog Second Chance Rescue,  info@blackdogsecondchance.org

Meet Thumbelina, Little Miss, arrived at 5 weeks old and a staggering 5.23 oz. She was critically ill and placed in an incubator to help her stabilize her body temperature. Round the clock care and her fighting survivor spirit helped her through this. She will catch up and is making up for lost time in the growing department quickly. She lives in a home with 3 other cats and 2 dogs. She also has met dozens of people as she got better. She would happily go back and forth to work with her foster mom and have run of the office so people were constantly stopping in to see her. A very confident, well-adjusted kitten who is much older than she looks. Note: she will grow and be a normal size cat. She will not remain tiny. She will purr when you simply look at her. She will be a people cat and will want to be with her humans as much as possible.  Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions    Email  585- 210-2509 Hey there, everybody! I'm Ella, a 5 year-old beagle who has all her shots. You might know my famous cousin, Snoopy. Like him, I also appreciate a good meal followed by a nice nap. 
I'm pretty timid, but my foster mom is teaching me all kinds of new things - like what nice pets are, what toys are, and how to stay off the couch. She says I'm a quick learner, and I'm starting to get comfortable in this new space. I recently met some new dogs and a lot of children, and we got a long very , very well.
I'm really very sweet - I just want to be by your side and receive all the pets you can give. I'd love to have an active family with a big, fenced back yard so I can run off some of my beagle energy. And after a big, long walk, it would so nice if I could just curl up in your lap for a quick snooze. I still have some learning to do, so if you have the time and patience, I will not disappoint!
