Animal lovers like you are vital to making the work of Lollypop Farm possible. Thank you for being a hero to the animals!
As a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, Lollypop Farm receives no government or other agency funds and relies entirely on community support from people like you. Your donation makes a real difference in the lives of pets in need in our community.
When you choose to join the Fur-Ever Yours Program, your on-going monthly support ensures that homeless and abused animals continue to have their needs met, no matter when they arrive at our doors.
Tribute and memorial donations and gifts are a special way to honor and remember loved ones or pets, or to commemorate a special event or milestone. Select from a number of options to suit your needs and occasion.
Did you know your employer might double or even triple your donations to help pets at Lollypop Farm? Many companies will even match donations made from spouses and retirees or make a matching gift for the hours you volunteer.
Members of the Bergh Society are ardent supporters committed to the compassionate care and rehabilitation of all animals, especially abused, neglected, and homeless pets. Members of this premier leadership giving society donate an annual gift of $1,500 or greater to support a variety of programs and services at Lollypop Farm. Members of the Bergh Society represent less than one percent of donors, but account for 46 percent of the dollars raised to help abandoned pets at Lollypop Farm.
Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have appreciated in value are among the best ways to help the animals. Not only are you able to provide veterinary services and compassionate care for homeless pets, but you can also receive a charitable income tax deduction and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
When you give, you want your charitable donations to be as effective as possible. Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the United States because they are one of the easiest and most tax-advantageous ways to give to charity.
You can save on taxes two ways by donating appreciated stock directly to Lollypop Farm. And if you’re 70 ½ years or older, you can make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your IRA directly to Lollypop Farm. You may use this gift to satisfy the required minimum distribution from your IRA while reducing your taxable income, even if you don’t itemize.
Did you know that you can now create a personal fundraiser on Facebook, and every dollar will support pets in need at Lollypop Farm?

Want to shake things up for your employees working remotely? How about a chat with a llama? Now, you invite a Lollypop Farm Paw-fice Pal or Farmyard Friend to your team’s next virtual meeting. It’s a fantastic way to brighten your employees’ day and help pets in need in our community.
From canned dog and cat food, to towels and blankets, to cleaning supplies, your wish list donations go directly toward caring for the hundreds of pets in the shelter at any given time.
Are you thinking of selling or trading in that old car, truck, boat, RV, or snowmobile? Why not donate it instead? A charitable contribution of your vehicle could make a big difference in the lives of so many homeless pets.
