Lollypop Farm Wish List

Our esteemed newsletter editor, Vickie Patridge, is also a volunteer at Lollypop Farm and would like your help if you could donate anything from the list below:

Lollypop Farm Wish List

Donating any of these items is a great way to contribute directly to the care of homeless animals at Lollypop Farm and receive a tax deduction.

If you have any items you are willing to donate, please bring them to the shelter in Fairport or our adoption centers.  If you have questions, please call us at (585) 223-1330. Thank you!

Urgent Needs:

  • We use large quantities of the following items on a daily basis. These are our greatest needs in caring for the animals at the shelter.
  • Cat toys like balls, toy mice, soft toys with catnip, pom poms, pipe cleaners
  • Soft dog treats (like Snausages, CloudStar Soft & Chewy Buddy Biscuits, or  Zukes Mini Naturals)
  • Canned cat food (all brands)
  • Large, black garbage bags
  • Paper towels
  • Bleach
  • Laundry detergent
  • Postage stamps
  • Reams of copy paper
  • Non-clumping cat litter
  • Gift cards to gas stations for law enforcement vehicles
  • Gift cards to Wegmans or Pet$aver Healthy Pet Superstore to purchase fresh produce and specialty supplies for reptiles and birds
  • Gift cards to Victor Feed and Home Center, Country Max, or Tractor Supply to purchase supplies for farm animals.
  •  NOTE: We do not have need for paper shreds.

 For the Animal Shelter

  • Pet Food
  • Guinea Pig food
  • Rabbit food
  • Hamster food
  • Cockatiel/Parakeet food
  • Large Parrot food
  • Ferret food
  • Science Diet cans of cat food
  • Treats for cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs
  • Any unopened bags of dog or cat food (for use by law enforcement and pet food bank)

For the entertainment of the volunteers at Lollypop, Rebecca has the following request:

  • When you’re doing your spring cleaning at home this year, keep an eye out for any radios or CD players that you wouldn’t mind donating to the shelter. Our radios have a short shelf life here due to the dust and continuous use, so we’re always on the lookout for more! We can use radios, CD players, or even alarm clocks with radios.
