Spirit Cats

Spirit Cats

Lollypop Farm Spirit Cats are like little ninjas in the night. You catch a glimpse of them and then quickly they dart out of view. Why are they like this? We don’t always know what a cat’s life was like before they were brought to the shelter. They may have had difficult or limited experiences with people. Whatever the reason, some cats are fearful and in need of a special family. Spirit Cats are likely to spend their time hiding and might not like a lot of attention. You may only hear the pitter-patter of their feet for days at a time. Visitors may never even see these stealth felines. But one day, when you’ve earned their trust, a spirit cat might rest on the couch next to you. Spirit Cats can also make great friends for other cats in your home. There are no guarantees. But one thing is certain, these special cats need someone like you to love them, even if it’s at a distance.

Meet Spirit Cats for Adoption



Supported in Part by:

Older people enjoy many benefits when they share their lives with a pet: research tells us that companion animals can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure, ease loneliness and depression, increase physical activity, and in turn, improve overall health. The quiet and doting home of a senior citizen can be the perfect match for an older animal in need of a loving companion.

The Seniors-for-Seniors Adoption Program is open to adopters who are 60 years of age or older. Lollypop Farm expert adoption counselors will help you select a dog or cat who is at least six years old who fits into your lifestyle and housing situation. The adoption fee is waived.

Your free adoption still includes all the regular benefits included with adoption like spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, a microchip implant and free registration, a free follow-up health exam with a participating veterinarian, and a new-pet welcome kit.

Simply visit any Lollypop Farm adoption center and let us know you are interested in a Seniors-for-Seniors adoption!

Heart-to-Heart dog image

Lollypop Farm has partnered with Boehringer Ingelheim, makers of HEARTGARD® Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) for an exciting life-saving adoption program. Some dogs that come to Lollypop Farm are diagnosed in our veterinary clinic with a life-threatening condition called heartworm disease. This serious disease is difficult and costly to treat. The cost of treatment for these pets, and others like them, have been paid for thanks to the generosity of Boehringer Ingelheim. Dogs treated for heartworm at Lollypop Farm will also have their adoption fee waived and will be going home with a year’s supply of a heartworm preventative called HEARTGARD® Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) to help keep them protected in their new home. Learn more about the Heart-to-Heart program.

HEARTGARD® Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) is well tolerated. All dogs should be tested for heartworm infection before starting a preventive program. Following the use of HEARTGARD Plus, digestive and neurological side effects have been reported. For more information, click here for full prescribing information.

Pets for Patriots


The Pets for Patriots program creates a win-win situation for military veterans and homeless pets. Lollypop Farm is a proud partner in this national program, which promotes adoption of shelter animals who are often overlooked to veterans, reduces overall costs of pet ownership for veterans, provides healing to those dealing with issues like PTSD or depression, and lends ongoing support to military adopters and their families.

To take part in Pets for Patriots and receive a 50% discount on your adoption fee, you must first apply through Pets for Patriots. The program accepts applications from men and women at all stages of their military careers and from all U.S. armed forces — from WWII veterans to those currently serving.

To be eligible for a Pets for Patriots adoption, pets must meet one of the following criteria:

  • Dog or cat aged two years or older
  • Special-needs dog or cat (e.g., with a birth defect, disability, or chronic medical condition), regardless of age
  • Large dog (40+ pounds), regardless of age

Once you have received your approval letter from Pets for Patriots, simply visit any Lollypop Farm adoption center and show us your letter!
