Dog Boarding in Rochester

The cats and dogs throughout Rochester, New York and the surrounding areas are well-loved by the animal-lovers throughout the community. The neglected, homeless, and surrendered pets throughout Rochester are in good hands once they enter the wonderful shelters. Outstanding volunteers dedicate their time, their skills, and their hearts to ensure the safety and well-being of pets in need. 

Joyful Rescues is one non-profit doing big things for animals of all sizes throughout Rochester. Since 2003, this amazing organization has been taking in dogs in need and loving them back to health, then placing them in loving fur-ever homes. This shelter is unique because each pet is provided with a real home life until they are adopted. They are placed in foster homes or held at the pet sanctuary with the founders of this non-profit. This ensures that all animals get careful and individual love and attention. 

Another amazing organization doing such wonderful work for animals all over is Nuts for Mutts Rescue. The entirely volunteer-run non-profit creates change in the community by providing excellent care and support to the animals who need it most. The animals are placed carefully in foster homes until they are placed in their forever homes with intention. The organization also aims to educate the community on proper dog-ownership and care.
