Lollypop Farm is an open-admission shelter, and we accept all animals that come through our doors. We understand that sometimes it may be necessary to give up a pet, and we will do our very best to place yours into a new home. However, we strongly suggest that you use us as a last resort. The Surrendering Your Pet to Lollypop Farm page has more information.
As an “open-admission” or “open-door” shelter, Lollypop Farm accepts every single animal that arrives at the shelter. We have about 30 animals coming every single day — about 11,000 in one year. If we housed too many animals at once, that would be unhealthy; overcrowding would lead to the spread of disease and would cause additional stress to the animals.
We work hard to euthanize as few animals as we can, and we treat all animals in our care as individuals. Lollypop Farm encourages all pet owners to spay and neuter their pets to help stem the tide of pet overpopulation.
