The animals are now safe at the Humane Society

Nearly two-dozen animals were discovered in a downtown Rochester building last week, sparking an investigation from the Humane Society. A total of 22 exotic pets, including geckos, a tortoise, snakes and more, were found in poor condition in a room in that building. The Humane Society found the animals after the tenant was evicted from the property and left their pets behind. All told, those 22 animals were left in what was described as “dehydrated and emaciated” states. One of those animals was found dead due to the lack of day-to-day care. The rescued animals are now being cared for at Lollypop Farm, with the Seneca Park Zoo also helping care for a larger tortoise. No arrests or charges have been announced at this point, but we’re told this is an ongoing investigation.
