Looking for a family pet? Rochester Animal Services is waiving adoption fees for select cats and dogs on Saturday, July 19. Officials say for dogs, there will be no charge except for the required license fee of $8.50.

"We've been consistently increasing adoptions and transfers to area rescue groups and reducing euthanasia," said Director of Animal Services Chris Fitzgerald. "However, we need more help. We need our community's help promoting pet adoptions from shelters and rescue groups, supporting programs that provide assistance to pet owners to reduce relinquishment and increase retention, spaying and neutering your pets, volunteering at a shelter, and fostering pets."

The City's animal shelter is located at 184 Verona Street. Adoptions can be made between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
