Our Mission


Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester, is committed to building lifelong bonds between people and animals through education, community outreach programs and the prevention of cruelty.

We’re committed to making it happen with specific actions like these:

  • Expanding adoptions. Our goal is that at least 82% of animals will find loving new homes.
  • Increasing access to low-cost spay/neuter services. Lollypop Farm is committed to addressing the overwhelming problem of homeless pets by providing low-income families access to spay/neuter services at a greatly reduced cost.
  • Heightening awareness of cruelty laws. Animal abuse must stop. So we investigate animal cruelty, educate pet owners, and arrest offenders.
  • Building long-term growth. We’ve been saving animals since 1873, and we’re devoted to doing even more year after year.

You can share our mission, too, with a gift in your will, trust or by beneficiary designation for Lollypop Farm. You will make caring for animals in need a part of your enduring legacy.
