About Us

Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester, has been helping animals and people since 1873. Support from the community enables around 115 staff members and more than 800 volunteers to care for around 10,000 animals each year and makes possible a variety of programs to address issues that contribute to the surrender of unwanted animals.

Animal Adoptions

Lollypop Farm adopts animals at our main campus and satellite adoption centers. Cats, dogs, rabbits, small pets, birds, horses, pigs, and other farm animals enjoy the comfort of a nurturing environment, veterinary treatment, and expert care while waiting for a new home. Learn more about adopting.

Your Support Saves Lives

Lollypop Farm is a private, nonprofit charity, not affiliated with any other humane society, SPCA, or animal welfare organization. We receive no government or funding assistance from other animal organizations, relying entirely on donations from businesses, grants, and community support from people like you.

Your donation of funds, supplies, or volunteer time makes a real difference for pets in our community—your support saves the lives of homeless and abused animals, educates the community on the importance of proper animal care, and investigates animal crimes. Learn more about how you can help animals.

Visitors Welcome!

The Lollypop Farm campus rests on 134 acres outside of Fairport, New York, in the Town of Perinton. What was originally farmland was donated to the Humane Society by Mr. Hiram Marks in 1964 in his will. We encourage people of all ages to visit the Main Campus, including the indoor shelter and our outdoor Farm Yard Petting Area and Walk, which offer educational displays about the many different animals for whom we care.
