Roto-Rooter Pet Rescues

Pipes, drains and other openings can be dangerous for cats, dogs and wildlife

Roto-Rooter is often called upon to save pets and wildlife stuck in precarious and oftentimes dangerous situations. Our expert technicians use state-of-the-art machinery, drain/sewer video cameras and even industrial excavation equipment to save the life of an animal in danger. We do all of this work for free* when called upon, seeing it as our duty to the communities we serve. If you think your home or business has drains or pipes that are easily accessible to your dog, cat, or wildlife, contact your local Roto-Rooter. Our professional plumbers can tour your property, assess vulnerabilities and help you find solutions that will keep your property working properly and keep your animals safe. Call the experts at Roto-Rooter for emergency pet rescue service!

Pet Rescues Food Drive


Roto-Rooter branches across the country participate in our annual Pet Rescues Giving Thanks Food Drive each November. Customers can donate 2 canned goods in return for 10% off any plumbing or drain service (up to $60 off) at participating locations. The canned goods can be human or pet food – we will make a donation to a local food bank as well as your neighborhood Humane Society or pet shelter.
