The Humane Society at Lollypop Farm
t h e
The Humane Society at Lollypop Farm has served the people and pets of Monroe County for 132 years. Our state-of-the-art facility focuses on quality animal care and humane education.
Our Mission: Weâ€™re committed to building lifelong bonds between people and animals, through education, community outreach programs and the prevention of animal cruelty.
The Letters The past year has been an extremely busy and important one for the Board of Directors at the Humane Society at Lollypop Farm. An extensive search ensued to find a new President/CEO, and a board retreat took place to develop a new strategic plan that will chart our future for the next three years. The top priority of the newly created strategic plan is to address the burgeoning cat overpopulation crisis. It will take a community-wide effort to find creative solutions to address this huge problem, and it will require strong financial support from the community to implement the solutions. The Board of Directors is very proud of the staff at the Humane Society. They perform the day-to-day work of the shelter and deliver the highest quality outreach programs to our community. They enrich the lives of thousands of animals every year and make it possible for animals coming into the shelter to find compassion, warmth and a chance at a new life. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to take this opportunity to thank the community-at-large for their past financial support and ask for your continued assistance.
Typically an annual report gives us a chance to look back at what we’ve accomplished. The hard part about working at Lollypop Farm is actually taking those few moments to look back and to applaud our accomplishments. As an organization and as a staff we are so mission driven and passionate about making a difference for the animals and people in our community that we rarely stop to say “Good Job!”. We are always on the move looking to improve our programs and services to match what our community needs. As you read through this annual report I hope you’ll take a moment along with me to say “Great Job”. Some of our highlights include launching our Pet Peeves behavior help line, which received it’s 1,000th call since it’s inception in 2003. Our cruelty department made nearly 3,000 field visits in an effort to prevent animal neglect and/or intentional acts of cruelty. We adopted over 7,000 animals to loving new homes, built on an outstanding core of volunteers, and added to our state-of-the-art clinic. We are thankful for such a talented and dedicated group of staff and volunteers, but are especially appreciative of our supportive and committed community. Without you, we would not be able to accomplish the good we do. Thanks so much,
Rosemary L. Bergin

The Vision The Humane Society at Lollypop Farm envisions 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.
The Shelter 14,753 needy and homeless animals were brought to Lollypop Farm in 2004. Of that number 8,691 were found to be adoptable with 7,067 adopted to new homes. Our goals are to reunite lost pets with their families and to find loving new homes for those who are unwanted or abandoned. We also give pets an opportunity to regain their physical and mental well-being through our foster care program. Pets are available for adoption at Lollypop Farm in Fairport and at Lollypop Farm West in Brockport. To combat pet overpopulation, all dogs, cats and rabbits are spayed or neutered before leaving the Humane Society.
Veterinary Medical Services The Humane Society at Lollypop Farm has a clinic that includes a staff of two veterinarians, five veterinary technicians, and one veterinary assistant. Our state of the art equipment includes gas anesthesia machines and two EKG machines. The Lollypop Veterinary staff performed 5,577 surgeries in 2004 consisting primarily of spay/neuter procedures. In addition to surgeries on dogs and cats, the Lollypop veterinary staff has performed surgical procedures on rabbits, guinea pigs, geese, chickens, roosters, ferrets, sheep, and goats. The veterinary staff assists the Investigation Department by examining and treating abused animals and performing forensic necropsies. The clinic also provides an Externship Program for veterinary students and an Internship Program for veterinary technician students.
The Programs Community Outreach • Pet Assisted Therapy—Last year our PAT program made 231 visits to 95 different facilities in Monroe County, including nursing homes, enriched living and independent living facilities, adult day care, developmentally disabled centers and psychiatric centers. All P-A-T dogs have passed both the Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog International tests. Currently our program boasts 89 volunteers of the human kind and 78 of the four-legged variety. • Pet Peeves—Behavior Help Line; a joint project with the AD Council of Rochester. Received over 1,000 since it’s inception in March 2003. • Pet Loss Support—Offered once a month as a free service to the community. • Senior-for-Seniors—Matches dogs/cats six years and older with adopters 60-years of age and older free of charge. • Pets are Welcome (P.A.W)—Our Rochester Pet Friendly apartment listing. Identifies over 200 apartments & townhouses in the Rochester area that open their doors to pets. • Dog Obedience classes—Over 1,620 people registered in 2004 for puppy, basic, and advanced obedience as well as agility classes.
Humane Education • Host daily participants from BOCES • The Farm Camp: 327 children in 2004 and offered camp scholarships to those in need.
Veterinary Pet Assistance • Spay/Neuter Incentive Program (SNIP) – Helped 1,520 low-income families to combat pet overpopulation by offering financial assistance to help with the spaying and neutering of their pet. • Pet food and veterinary assistance is offered to individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford the companionship of a pet. Assisted over 100 individuals last year.
The Cruelty Department Our Animal Cruelty Investigations Department fielded 1,193 complaints in 2004, ranging from reports of mild neglect to criminal acts of intentional cruelty. The results produced 2,851 field visits, 345 impounds/ rescues, and 14 arrests.
Volunteer profile Stitch Marilyn Lucas is one example of the many terrific volunteers Lollypop Farm is thankful to have. She has given over 1200 hours since starting as a Humane Society volunteer in July of 2000. Marilyn staffs our Lollypop Shop where adopting families buy their food and supplies, completes loads of paperwork for our membership department and recently spent hours organizing our computer/mailing room. She quietly “gets the job done” and often works extra hours when she notices a need. In addition, Marilyn has raised more than $1,000 by creating baskets of dog/cat goodies, filled with fun and useful items for pets mostly purchased and contributed by Marilyn. The beautiful baskets are raffled at our events. Her generosity and her pleasant personality make us grateful she joined the volunteer team.
“Stitch” is one of the many neglected pets that are brought to Lollypop Farm. Upon arriving, he was immediately brought to our clinic to have a gaping wound closed and a huge tumor removed. Despite his painful past, this cat exudes affection. “Stitch” has touched a host of people at this shelter, from the cruelty investigations department, to the shelter clinic, to foster care—which in this case was the office of a staff member. As a result of all their efforts, Stitch is on his way to a loving new home.
The Farm Each year, nearly 150,000 visitors enjoy the farmyard at Lollypop Farm. This unique exhibit allows families to learn more about farm animals and offers these unwanted animals a safe, caring environment while they await loving new homes. Every summer children ages 4-13 enjoy our popular Lollypop Farm Camp. Kids develop respect and understanding of all living creatures, while becoming familiar with the responsibilities involved in caring for animals. Thanks to M&T Bank and Rochester Female Charitable Society for making our Farm Camp Scholarship Program possible.
No shelter in the world can boast of a more dedicated & generous corps of volunteers.
Volunteer Program A dedicated 779 people, gave 38,149 hours in the last fiscal year. We are thankful to have a strong base of long-term volunteers who support our day to day operations. Several Lollypop West volunteers have been there since that adoption center opened. Volunteers have stepped into new roles such as counselors on the Pet Peeves Behavior Help Line and intake assistants in our clinic. A volunteer with the Humane Society can have a varied “career” by taking advantage of advanced training offerings. Just as valuable—and valued—are those volunteers who choose to keep it simple and provide hands-on animal care, in the shelter or at home in foster care. Each and every role a volunteer fulfills, helps carry out the mission of the Humane Society.
Here is a list of volunteers who worked at least 100 hours during the two years ending 6/30/04. Space does not permit us to list the therapy animals, or the people who worked up to 100 hours. Many more people worked at events and in foster care. On behalf of the animals, we are grateful to all.

Giving Back: A Family Affair The Murphy/Linares Family Edith Murphy has always had a love for animals. She brought her four daughters out to visit the “old” Lollypop Farm often. She describes her dog “Mandy”, a mixed-breed dog, as the nicest dog she ever had. Mrs. Murphy met “Mandy” many years ago at Lollypop Farm. “Mandy” was a victim of abuse, confiscated due to cruelty, and Mrs. Murphy fell in love with her the moment she saw her.
The Media Every day local media organizations help the Humane Society at Lollypop Farm stay top-of-mind with area residents.

Although her daughter Edie (Murphy) Linares grew up around animals, it was the death of her favorite cat that started her involvement with Lollypop Farm. “Tuxedo” was a stray cat and when she passed away, Edie came to Lollypop Farm to do something in her memory. She ended up sponsoring two cat condos at Lollypop Farm one in memory of “Tuxedo” and another in honor of her daughter Emme. Edie has also volunteered in the gift shop, adoptions, with events and foster care. Emme has helped her mother with volunteer work and attended our popular summer farm camp. Edie’s husband Chris, a senior vice president at Hickey Freeman, has frequently asked Hickey Freeman to sponsor Humane Society events and will soon be joining our Board of Directors. Both the Murphy and Linares’ families have also taken steps to provide for the Humane Society in the future. Mrs. Murphy set up a charitable remainder trust listing Lollypop Farm as a beneficiary and the Linares’ have included the organization in their will. The Linares have also included provisions in their will for their beloved Lollypop adoptees. The family currently has three pets from Lollypop, a dog and two cats. “I feel like we hit the jackpot”, says Edie.
