In 2002, Animal Services began publishing a quarterly newsletter containing information on intake and disposition statistics; changes, improvements, and enhancements; noteworthy calls for service or shelter stories; articles on challenges faced by the organization; and discussion of programs and events.
The newsletter began as a tool to keep City employees informed of what is going on at the shelter and in field operations within the Animal Services Section of the Rochester Police Department. Over the years the newsletter distribution list has grown to include adopters, donors, and other supporters. We believe the newsletter has achieved one of the main goals of bolstering awareness of Animal Services within the Police Department, within the City of Rochester government, and within the community we serve.
Beginning in 2007, the newsletter shifted from solely a City publication as the Kennel Quarterly to a joint effort between Animal Services and the Verona Street Animal Society. This joint publication became the Verona Street News.
