Hi, my name is Cheryl Hurley. I manage a number of properties, mainly in the city of Rochester. We started rescuing a number of animals, since 1983. Currently, we have Bishop, a 10 1/2 year old loving Rottweiller; Missy, a 7 1/2 year old energetic bull terrior mix; Maxine a 3 1/2 year old brindle pit bull; Elmo, a 4 year old pit bull mix; and Lucky, an 8 month old Beagle/Hound/Labrador mix we just rescued. In 2010, we have also rescued 2 pit bulls, a minature dog (I am not sure what breed), a cat and a bunny. So far we have found good homes for them, but we keep finding more. We also have a batch of cats outside our business that we feed. We hope to put them through the trap & neuter/spay program and release program---thus preventing more kittens this spring.
Frequently I have tenants that no longer want their animals or they are not taking care of them properly---the animal's ribs are showing and/or they are ill. Unfortunately, six large dogs is a lot for us---the pack mentality comes in to play and the dogs fight to be Alpha Dog. Maxine went from a quiet pit bull to now being in charge of the other dogs. We are looking for good homes for the new animals we find---especially the pit bulls because the City Animal control puts them to sleep if the owner does not claim them.
I learned about Michelle and the forum through Brian. Brian used to work for me and he now helps to rescue thoroughbreds.

Hi Cheryl! Welcome! I'm actually in the same line of work. I am lucky that I have not found any abandoned pets, but I hear about it a lot. Sounds like you have your hands full, but thanks for trying to help instead of just dropping them off, especially at RAS!

Hi and welcome! I am also from Rochester!

Thank you for helping these animals-my husband is a contractor and does a lot of rehab work in the city-he constantly finds abandoned, stray and mistreated dogs (tons of pits) among the properties where he works, and we would like to save them all :( it's nice to know that there are other kind souls out there in the city looking out for these pups :wave2:
