closed for intake

Due to Covid-19 Flower City Critters is closed for intake. If you have a genuine emergency please contact us at flowercityrescue@gmail.com.

We are still adopting out the pets in foster care. Adopters will be required to fill out the adoption contract electronically and remit electronic payment for adoption fee's either through this website or PayPal. 

We will have the adopter meet at the foster's home. You must bring a carrier. Animal transfers will take place outside the residence to reduce exposure for both parties. Only the adopter should be present at this time. Normally families come together to pick up their new family pet but at this time, PLEASE do not do this.

For animals requiring a home visit this will take place via Facetime, Facebook video call, Blue Jeans, or Zoom.




Flower City Critters Small Animal Rescue needs dedicated foster homes.  We prioritize intake with the city shelter asking for help, medical emergencies, strays, and abused animals. Right now we are most in need of RABBIT & RAT fosters!

Please fill out our foster/volunteer application; one of our coordinators will be in touch with you.

*Special Notes* You must be 18 years old to volunteer. If you want to foster you MUST be the owner of the home/renter of the apartment.

When you foster for Flower City Critters you are never on your own!  You will have a foster coordinator that will help you through the process and always be your guide.

Volunteers are also needed for events, transport, and social media. Just because you cannot foster does not mean you cannot help.  Please submit your application today!

About Us


Who are we?

Flower City Critters Small Animal Rescue is a 100% volunteer run registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Based in Rochester, NY we are dedicated to ensuring the welfare of all small animals and placing them in loving homes.


What do we do?

Our organization adopts out small animals to educated & loving homes.  Flower City Critters is Rochester's only official non-profit animal rescue organization that is solely dedicated to small animals. Small animals are considered exotic pets and have fewer resources available to them.

We take in animals based on priority including pulling those from the local shelter, strays, and abused/neglected animals.  All pets are placed on a proper diet while in foster care and receive behavioral & medical help when needed. 

We strive to educate the community on small animal needs so that everyone has the opportunity to give their pet the best care possible!


Adopt Don't Shop!

Adoption is the best choice! Your new pet has been taken care of by a foster who has gotten to know them.  Each animal has their own unique personality.  We know their likes & dislikes, their favorite things to do, and can best guide you how to prepare for that particular animal.  It's nice to have a little knowledge before bringing home a new family member.


Your generous tax-deductible donation helps us continue our mission!
