"Pets are Welcome" Resource Listing
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 envision a time when our community celebrates the human-animal bond; embraces the mutual benefits therein; and treats all fellow beings with care, compassion, and respect. Two ways this vision can be attained are by (1) finding more homes for admitted pets, and (2) reducing admissions to the shelter. In doing so, more pets may find homes in rental communities and fewer pets may enter the shelter, thus reducing, and eventually eliminating, the need for pet-euthanasia.
Since many animals are surrendered to the shelter each year because their owners have difficulty finding rental properties that allow pets, assisting tenants in finding pet-friendly housing will reduce admissions to the shelter. The P.A.W. resource list links renters to helpful apartment/house rental search engines that provide up to the minute information on the properties that allow pets. It also contains information that encourages communication between rental management and responsible, pet-owning tenants. If rental management and pet owners work together, they can create a mutually beneficial pet-friendly environment, keeping the pet's family intact and ensuring protection of management's properties.
