Pet Guardian Program

Do you worry about who will be there for your beloved family pet if you pass away or can no longer provide for his/her care?

The Pet Guardian Program allows you to designate Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Rochester and Monroe County for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Inc., as temporary guardian for any pets who outlive you. The program is available for domestic pets whether or not they were adopted from Lollypop Farm.

Pets are admitted to the shelter by our trusted staff and cared for as dear friends. While we search for the perfect new family, we coordinate their care with a foster family as needed. They’ll also be provided quality medical care and vaccinations from our veterinary staff to ensure their health.

How To Enroll

Simply maintain an annual donation to Lollypop Farm and include us in your will or beneficiary designations. Then, let us know that you have done so by completing the Declaration of Intent page.

Request a Pet Guardian Enrollment Form for each pet you wish to enroll. In return, we’ll do everything in our power to ensure your beloved pet finds the perfect new home.
