Welcome to Flower City Critters Small Animal Rescue!



Nutmeg & Nugget

Nutmeg & Nugget have been with Flower City Critters for some months now. They are part of a group of five rabbits surrendered to us by a lovely woman who has since passed away, and wanted to make sure her beloved rabbits were cared for.

They are brother & sister Himalayan mix bunnies. They have beautiful ruby eyes and silly personalities to match! Apply to give this lovely pair a forever home.

The Perfect Buns!

  • Easy to handle
  • Like to be held/cuddled
  • Litter trained
  • Will provide you with laughs!




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.

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.
