“Very well taken care of”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

I have been going to this place since I was a small child. The animals are very well taken care of and for the most part they seem happy. By that I mean some of these dogs are older and they just were abandoned by the ones they love. We would take all of them if we had the room.

“Fun to walk through”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

I hadn't been to Lollypop Farms in ages, but I passed through today just to see all that's changed. They have greatly increased the size of the place, and have added large wings for dogs, cats, and other "barn" animals. I was impressed with the efforts they make to get animals adopted, even though some of them looked like they'd been through a lot in their lives. Lots of rabbits and birds for adoption, too, to the right families.

I left a contribution for these folks on the way out, as they provide free spaying services to all who need it. This is a great place to take the kids, especially in the summer when they can visit with the bigger animals outside. I highly recommend it.

“Not A Chance”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

I also surrendered my 4 year old lab on Dec. 6, 2013, she did have some issues, but my husband and I had decided we missed her so much, that we were willing to send her to a Behavioral Camp... She was surrendered at 11:00am on 12/6/2013 and that evening when we called to get her back, they told us we could not have her..... Euthanized???? give me a break, not even 12 hours.... I always admired Lollypop, however I am extremely disappointed that my pretty girl, did not have a chance....
I hate myself for what she must have felt>>>>

“Stay away.”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

They killed my one year old lab mastiff mix without giving me a chance to take him back. All within a week. The dog never bit anyone and didn't have a mean bone in his body. He was hyper and needed more room to run then we could give him and now he's dead. I'll be an advocate against this place for the rest of my life.
