About Animal Services


 RAS Front Entrance 


Rochester Animal Services (RAS) is a municipal animal care and control agency committed to helping city residents and their animals, promoting appropriate pet care and pet retention, and reducing pet relinquishment to reduce shelter intakes. RAS enforces all New York State laws and City of Rochester ordinances pertaining to animal control. We operate an animal shelter for stray and disowned animals that serves as a pet lost and found site, pet adoption center, and low-income spay neuter clinic.
