  • 1. RAS is doing the best they can with what they have

    by: jlafferty

    RAS has it hard. People dump their unwanted pets and leave them with the responsibility of trying to rehome them, which more times than not doesn't happen. People need to take responsibility for their own pets and stop acting like they are disposable. RAS tries hard to get the animals they can out to rescue groups, but unfortunately not very many are pulling form them. It is too bad more people don;t volunteer to help. They have a great staff who is more than willing to work with you!

    Pros

    they truly care about the animals

    Cons

    not enough space to keep animals for any length of time

  • 2. Very Disappointed

    by: lilmommamia

    I am an advocate of pitbulls and I rescue them. My review is somewhat contradictory in that I do think Rochester Animal Services is a very clean shelter with a great staff. I was pretty impressed with how nice and clean it was!\r\n\r\nMy disappointment comes in when I learned that this shelter euthanizes any and all pitbulls and pit mixes. I know that some shelters do not want to get into the business of adopting out pitbulls and pitbull mixes (although I disagree immensely) but the fact that this shelter will not even release the animals to a rescue group is a huge letdown and extremely close-minded. This specific breed of animal is dead walking in the door to this place without ever having had their temperament tested.\r\n\r\nVery, VERY disappointing.

    Pros

    Great staff, very clean

    Cons

    Euthanizes all pitbulls and pit mixes
