About Animal Services


 RAS Front Entrance 


Rochester Animal Services (RAS) is a municipal animal care and control agency dedicated to improving the quality of life and safety for city residents and their animals, promoting responsible pet ownership, and reducing animal overpopulation. RAS enforces all New York State laws and City of Rochester ordinances pertaining to animal control. We operate an animal shelter for stray, injured, and disowned animals that serves as a pet adoption center, a site for locating lost pets, and a low-income spay neuter clinic. We strive to provide the best possible care for every animal in our charge.
