Who is RAS
Rochester Animal Services (RAS) is a municipal animal care and control organization. It serves Rochester’s people and animals to create safe neighborhoods, support the human-animal bond, and save and enhance lives.
In February 2005, Jennifer Brown met with Rochester Animal Services Director, Chris Fitzgerald, to see how she could help the shelter and the animals. After becoming a volunteer and adopting her husky, Nanook, she was inspired to make an impact on our community. Jennifer formed a separate not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) organization to provide support and resources to Rochester Animal Services.The Friends of Verona Street Animal Shelter was officially formed in May 2006 with the appointment of directors and have been operating as Verona Street Animal Society since that time.
