CFA Rescue & Adoptions

CFA offers a small, personable and adoption program.  Our rescued animals are housed at the CFA office and with foster homes until they are healthy and ready for adoption.  All CFA adoptable animals are spayed or neutered, fully vetted, up-to-date on vaccines, microchipped and treated for parasites.  Finding the perfect home and match takes time and personal attention!


Meet Gabe! Gabe is a 3-year old neutered bundle of fluff looking for his forever home. Gabe loves to rub, roll and be pet - but he's not a big fan of dogs and other cats. He'd do well in a quiet home with plenty of the attention and affection he deserves! Is Gabe the one for you? Call our office to schedule a day and time to meet him!



These adorable, loving, domestic bunnies were rescued by a concerned citizen in the Rochester area after a breeder that was using them as bait abandoned and released them into his own backyard. With a little help from the public (which we're still in need of!), CFA has been assisting the caretaker with spay/neuter procedures, food, supplies and adoption.
There are 26 bunnies that currently need homes - 22 of them still need to be spayed/neutered. YOU can help!
Donate today with a note attached to your donation stating you wish to donate to the Bunny Fund! Or call our office to schedule an adoption meeting!

The Life of a Cat

by Michael M. Middleton, who adopted Blackie in 2012

To live the life of a cat
would well be worth
the few years given.
A life of true freedom,
at peace with oneself,
is a life that’s worth the livin’!
To live each moment in wonder…
like a child
the world to see;
to simply play and to run
or lounge in the sun;
that seems like a good deal to me.

Successful Adoption Stories

Four Socks: In December 2011, my cat Molly began to get sick, and, due to liver failure, I had to put her down in January 2012.  That was a very hard thing to do.  I wasn’t ready to get another cat right away, so I waited a few months.  Around late March or early April of 2012, I had been trying to find a female tuxedo kitten to adopt.  I tried all avenues I knew about, Craigslist, PetFinder, etc.  None of these options worked out for me.  I had contacted Concern for Animals the first part of April and explained what I wanted.  I was told me there was a cat named Blackie who just had kittens and some were female tuxedo kittens.  She sent me photos via e-mail, and I fell in love with the one had named 4 Socks. 

I went to meet the kittens at the CFA house when they were about 3-4 weeks old and knew that I wanted to adopt 4 Socks.  I brought her home on May 12, 2012, and have enjoyed having her ever since.  I re-named her Amelia.  She is such a beautiful cat, and very playful.  I found it interesting that she was born May 22nd; my cat Molly, that I had lost in January, was born on March 23rd, just different years.  Amelia has some of the traits that Molly had, but she also has her own personality.  I am glad I was able to adopt Amelia, as she has been the perfect cat for me.  My other cat Mittens has adapted to her well. 

I am glad Concern for Animals is there to help the animals that need a home, and encourage everyone to support them in whatever manner you can, whether it be financial, time volunteering, or fostering animals until they get their forever home.  They are a great organization.  - Brenda Taylor
