This is one of my pet peeves. Why do rescues/shelters pull dogs from other states when we have our own overpopulation problem? I know for a fact that Lollypop euthanizes animals due to overcrowding. So again, why bring in more dogs when you are killing the ones that are already in your care??? Even if you are a no kill rescue, take 15 dogs out of RAS or 15 of the free dogs listed on Craigslist and find them homes. We need to fix Rochesterís pet overpopulation issue before bringing dogs in from other parts of the country.

I agree. I think it is important that people understand that the Humane Society and our local Lollypop Farm are not true "no-kill" shelters. It should truly be a last resort.

Since when did Lollypop Farm claim to be a no kill shelter ? Dogs and cats stay there a specific period of time and if they don't get adopted they get put down.

The fact is many people don't know. They think when they can no longer care for Fluffy or Spot, they can take them to the Humane Society and they will find their beloved pet a home and they will live happily ever after. Not true.

lollipop farm and rochester animal services kill all dogs and cats after a specific time if not adopted. I did volunteer work at lollipop farm.I lasted exactly one day. and left. there was a really cute dog named spanky he was two years old his owner brought him in to lollipop to get another home. well a older couple came in and adopted spanky the next day they brought him back ,saying the dog messed on their floor and vomited. lollipop took the dog back and proceeded to have the dog put down , well I took the dog which acccording to procedure is not to be done, because once a dog is adopted and brought back by the adopted owners the dog is deemed unadoptable, and always killed. I bribed lollipop farm supervisor and I took the dog, the next day I took the dog to penfield vet. and the dog was sick with somesort of viral infection vet fixed him up he became a great dog and lived to be 18years old.
