CFA offers a small, personable rescue and adoption program. Our rescued animals are housed at the CFA office and with board members until they are healthy and ready for adoption. Finding the perfect home and match takes time and personal attention!
Dusty's owner became terminal and reached out to us in a desperate attempt to place him in a no-kill rescue. Although we were full at the time, we made arrangements to keep him until we could find a forever home. Dusty is a sweet, affectionate 6-year old Siamese/Maine Coon mix. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and ready to find his forever family. Is Dusty the one for you? Call to arrange a meeting!
is a sassy senior in search of her forever home.
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!

If you have a pet that needs a new home, you may email us at email@example.com with your contact information, the pet information and a picture. We would be glad to create a "courtesy posting" on CFA's Petfinder page. You may also post a message on CFA's Facebook page as well.

Cost of Adoption: $80 cat | $100 dog
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.
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 JoAnne from Concern for Animals the first part of April, and explained to her what I wanted. She told me that she had 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 she had named 4 Socks.
I went to meet her at the CFA house when the kittens were about 3-4 weeks old, and definitely 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, and 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
