Hi, my name is Cocoa!  I'm a 3 year old female Pitty mix that needs a home,.  I sometimes get skittish around males of the human species. I would prefer if you meet me outside, since I am not fond of having conversations through a gate. I must let you know that I may be very selective about the other dogs that I hang out with so if you have a dog already, I would definitely need to meet him or her to see if they meet with my approval :)
I need to be with people who are active. I get very easily bored if I am not occupied so you better be in shape to keep up with me. I think I would do much better with older children since I am so active. Take me for a walk and get to know me.  My adoption fee is only $100 and includes my spay, vaccines, and microchip.  Please come meet me soon!

Animals adopted are spayed/neutered, tested (Heartworm and Lyme for dogs, FELV/FIV for cats), dewormed, flea treated, have their first vaccines, microchipped, and best of all will bring joy and love to your life! The shelter is located at: 6247 Lamphear Road, Rome, NY. (Just off Rt. 365) Open Tuesday through Saturday 11-5:00PM, Sunday 11-3:00PM, closed Mondays. For more information, please call 315-336-7070 or 315-337-1434, or visit us on the web at: Thank you.

About Humane Society of Rome

About Our Shelter...

Hi, thanks for stopping by! We are a non-profit shelter located in Rome, New York. We have been serving the needs of the Mohawk Valley and surrounding CNY communities since 1956.
We provide shelter, food, care and medical attention if needed for cats and dogs on a year round basis. A goal of our shelter is to find every cat and dog that comes to us a good home. We work very hard to achieve that goal. We have had some of our animals with us for over a year before we finally found them a family. All of the animals that leave our shelter are spayed/neutered, up to date on their shots, wormed, treated for fleas, and microchipped.

Besides helping to find good homes for our cats and dogs, we also provide a number of other services. We do Humane Education throughout the community. If your school or organization would like to schedule an appointment, please call 315-336-7070. Our shelter offers a Sponsorship Program for people who may not be able to adopt but are interested in helping our animals. You can always ask for our "Wish List" also and donate items from that for the animals. All donations are greatly appreciated and really help us to continue our work on a year round basis. Our volunteers (we are always looking for new ones) work closely with staff in a number of areas. Some volunteers act as Foster Parents for those animals that need special attention or some extra TLC.
The Humane Society of Rome welcomes all inquiries and visitors. Please come visit our furry friends or call us if you have questions. We look forward to serving you. Thanks.

Please donate to our Help The Animals Campaign

They arrive daily. Sometimes it is just one, often there are a few. Some are grown, some just babies. They arrive sick, injured, and scared, in need of food and a home.

Each year we take in more animals than the previous year. These added numbers mean we have to spend more on spay/neuter operations, medical supplies and veterinarian costs. In one year alone we will provide medicine and needed vet services for over a 1,000 animals.

In addition, we have the daily costs of food, energy and all of the other expenses it takes to run our shelter. Everyday we feed, clean, medicate and care for our many beautiful and loving animals. We do this not only because it is needed, we do it - Because We Care.

Please remember all the animals that need your help by making a donation today. Also, share this information with family, friends and your co-workers. Get them involved. Your contribution will provide food, shelter, vet services, medicines, and for some animals, the gift of life.

Our Adoption Process...

We sincerely hope that we can be of service to you. Anyone interested in adopting a cat or dog must first fill out a screening application.

Our application is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in yours and the animal’s best interest and to place our animals into permanent responsible homes. We want to assist you in finding the pet most compatible with your lifestyle. Because the animal’s welfare must be our foremost consideration, HSR reserves the right to deny any adoption. Staff will review your application to ensure that the animal is going to a good home and that it is also the "right" animal for you. We want each adoption to be a good match. If for whatever reason it doesn't work out, please bring the animals back to us.
