Pet Rescue Organizations


These rescues are wonderful organizations whose goal is finding loving permanent homes for strays and unwanted animals. Like us, they are doing their best to get animals adopted so new ones can have an opportunity for a new life as well.  We currently have listings for dog, horse, and bird rescues.  There are currently no cat rescue listings.

If you have a cat rescue and would like it listed here, please contact us at and include your pet rescue's name, type of pet rescue (i.e. dog, cat, horse, or bird), and contact information (which may include address, phone number, email, and website).

Finger Lakes SPCA of Central New York lists the following local animal services as a courtesy & does not personally endorse any of them.
