Hi, I'm Basil!
Basil is a sweet little screwball who is very affectionate. He loves to sit on his foster mom's lap while she types on the computer. He really likes online jigsaw puzzles. Basil finds the little colored pieces fascinating! After a little training, he no longer attacks the screen but is content to watch the pieces move around.
Basil gets along very well with the other kittens in his foster home, as well as the resident dogs and cats. He will be a loving addition to any home.
Prior to final adoption, this kitten will have been combo-tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV, received a rabies vaccination along with all other age-appropriate vaccinations, and will have been altered.
Hi, my name is Buddy! I am a Miniature Pinscher!
Buddy is 11 years young. He is an independent boy who is happy to explore on his own and loves to play with squeaker toys. He has been on a diet at his foster mom's and with his new svelte figure he now has a new lease on life. You will find him bouncing and jumping around like a young pup! He prefers to snuggle and cuddle right next to you. Buddy also loves to swim when it's hot and going to the park to explore new places.
Adoption fee: $50

Foster homes needed!
GRASP continues to reach out to all local residents for help right as we are in need of additional foster space. Would you please consider fostering a healthy, friendly cat or kitten for us? If you can't, do you know of anyone who might consider helping us out?
Before being placed into foster care, all cats and kittens are fully vet checked, tested for feline leukemia and FIV, checked and treated for all parasites and fleas and fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered. GRASP will gladly provide food, litter, litter boxes, dishes and toys. All we need from you is a little extra space in your heart and home.
If you've ever thought about helping out, please make now the time you decide to step-up!
GRASP does not have a pet shelter. All rescued animals stay temporarily in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted into a permanent home. Call 234-1953 or contact one of the Foster Coordinators to become a foster family!

Who We Are
G.R.A.S.P. (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) was incorporated on February 1996 as a non-profit animal rescue organization. Greece is a suburb of Rochester, N.Y. and the purpose of the group is to find fur ever homes for all adoptable animals that come through the town's Animal Control.
G.R.A.S.P. is staffed completely by volunteers and is funded entirely by donations from the public. Our animals are kept in foster homes or boarded until a foster home is found.
Please be aware that we are not able to adopt to anyone living more than two hours away from Rochester. Some of these fur children came from bad situations and to be sure that they are in the right environment, home visits are necessary.
Adopting a Friend
If you are interested in adopting one of our available pets, you must first fill out an
adoption application form (available on our website or at adoption events). If your application is approved, then (for dogs) a home visit is scheduled. If all goes well, a formal, legal adoption agreement is filled out and signed at the time of adoption. Our fee for adopting a kitten six months and younger is $135, for cats over 6 months the adoption fee is $100, and the fee for senior cats, 8 years and older, is $50. Our fee for adopting a dog/puppy is listed in their bio. The fee helps offset expenses incurred, since all of G.R.A.S.P.'s animals are examined by a local vet, receive all age-appropriate vaccinations and are spayed/neutered.
Volunteering and Donations
Volunteers are always needed to help with adoption days, dog walking, and fund raising events. You do not need to be a Greece resident to volunteer. Of course, our goal is to have a shelter, but until that happens, we need canned and dry cat food, cat litter, cat condos, carriers, dog collars, blankets, leashes, stamps, a digital camera and a copier. We are also desperate for foster homes to help with our kittens and dogs.
Without the support of the public and generous donors like you, we could not continue to give homeless pets another chance at a permanent home. Since there are always homeless animals in need, the funds are always tight. At a minimum, our vet bills run into the hundreds of dollars each month. Won't you take a moment now and
send what you can spare? Your donation today will save a life tomorrow.
Donations can also be mailed to G.R.A.S.P., PO Box 26741, Rochester, NY 14626. Thank You!
