Pitty Love Rescue

Pitty Love Rescue is returning to VegFest!

Based in Rochester, their primary focus is to find responsible homes for the dogs in their care and provide lifelong support to the dogs’ new families, but they also work on advocacy, information sharing, and community outreach, routinely working with the under-served portion of our community to help keep dogs in homes by providing necessary resources. That includes low cost spay/neuter, vetting assistance, training assistance, help with food, and collaboration to acquire affordable, non-discriminatory housing.

30 Years!

You probably know that Rochester Vegfest is a project of two local organizations, Animal Rights Rochester and the Rochester Area Vegan Society.  But did you know they both have big anniversaries this year?

ARRoc was formed as “Animal Rights Advocates of Upstate, NY” (ARAUNY) by a small group of upstanders in 1989! Another group was busy forming the “Rochester Area Vegetarian Society” that same year. New names, same great organizations. We’re both 30!
