Good news, bad news: The featured dog is pending adoption and the cat was adopted! Even though my two picks are no longer available, there are many deserving animals at Lollypop Farm (and in shelters or rescues near you) looking for a new home.
Bear is an 11-year-old Border Collie/Lab mix who’s looking for a nice home where he can enjoy his retirement years. He was brought to Lollypop Farm because his family was moving and couldn’t take him along. Bear walks well on the leash! He has lived with kids before, but needs to go to a home with children over the age of six. He also needs to meet any dogs in the household before adoption to make sure they’ll be buddies. He has lived peacefully with both with dogs and cats in his previous home. Bear is available in the Seniors-for-Seniors program, so adopters age 60 and older can take him home free of charge! Bear is eager to meet you and to become your companion!
Chocolate is a beautiful, 6-year-old male black cat. Chocolate is at Lollypop Farm for a second time through no fault of his own. Originally, he was here because his owners had too many cats and now, six years later, he is back because his owners were moving and could not take him along. This handsome boy is a curious kitty who likes to play with toys but isn’t fond of thunderstorms. He is front declawed, so he is looking for a new home where he can stay inside. Chocolate is eligible for our Seniors-for-Seniors program, so adopters age 60 and older can take him home free of charge. Chocolate is also one of our Featured Felines: Black Cats. Now through Friday (9/2), adopt him for just $35, or any other black cat, 5 months or older! This sweet boy wants to meet you today!
Oliver, the cat from last week was adopted! The dog, Genny, is still looking for a new forever home.

Here are my two picks for this week:
Genny is a 3.5-year-old female American Foxhound mix who weighs 52 pounds. This sweetie came to Lollypop Farm because her family had too many pets and didn’t feel she was getting the attention she deserves. Her tail thumps out quite a beat on the kennel walls and she has a smile for anyone who will stop by to say hello. Genny is your typical hound with long graceful legs, a beautiful face and wonderfully expressive ears! Genny has lived most of her life outside. She is eager to please and looks forward to adjusting to the comforts of being an inside dog! A home with children over the age of 6 is recommended, due to the fact that she has never lived with children. She’d also prefer a home with no cats or small animals. Come out and meet Genny today…she can’t wait to become a member of your family!
Oliver is a 7-year-old male cat. He’s wearing a grey tiger cat suit! He was brought to Lollypop Farm because his owner was moving and couldn’t take him along. Oliver is a confident boy who likes to do everything in a big way! This kitty likes to be smack in the middle of things, but he’ll still make plenty of time to show you his affectionate side. He loves to play with toys, give kisses and will definitely curl up in an available lap. He has been living in the cattery and gets along well with other cats, and he lived peacefully with a dog in his previous home. Oliver is eligible for our Seniors-for-Seniors program, so adopters age 60 and older can take him home free of charge. Come and meet him today!
Good news…Jake, the dog from last week was adopted! The cat, Wedge, is still looking for a new forever home. If you’re thinking about adding a new pet to your family, please consider Genny, Oliver or Wedge!

Volunteering at Lollypop Farm is one of the highlights of my week! I love dedicating my time to help animals get adopted. One of my volunteer jobs supports the marketing department. Each week I pick out dogs and cats currently available for adoption to be featured as the Pet of the Week. I write a profile for each pet and send them out to local bloggers, news outlets, radio shows and even large companies who have agreed to distribute the information. It’s a fun job…I spend time getting to know the animals and track them until they are adopted!
Do you volunteer or work at a pet focused organization? I’d love to know what you do to support pets in your community!
So here are two of my picks this week:
Meet Jake! Jake is nearly 3-years-old and weighs about 60 pounds. He is a very social, friendly boy who loves people and loves to play. He can be on the shy side until he gets to know you, but once you’re friends, you’re friends for life! Jake is a staff favorite. He was brought to Lollypop Farm because his owners could no longer care for him. He is crate-trained and house-trained and is very friendly with other dogs. It seems that Jake is a firm believer that dogs rule, so we recommend he goes to a home without cats. He also is a little nervous about rough play and quick movements and would do best in a home with children over the age of 16. Come in and meet Jake today if you’re looking for a wonderful companion!
Wedge is a 5-year-old male black and white cat who has been waiting too long for a new home. He came to Lollypop Farm in May, because his family was moving and could not bring him along. Wedge is a mellow boy who enjoys lots of attention. He has been trained to use a scratching post! This sweet boy lived with children in his previous home and enjoyed their company. He has been living in the cattery and gets along well with other cats, but he’s a bit cautious when it comes to dogs. Wedge is one of our Featured Felines: Cattery Cats. Now through Friday (8/19), you can adopt him for just $35, or any other cat, 5 months or older, who is living in the cattery! Come out and meet Wedge…you won’t be disappointed!

My name is Audrey and I am passionate about pets! I volunteer at my local shelter, Lollypop Farm, and I am in the process of starting a non-profit organization to benefit local pets. I share my life with my dog, Macy, and cat, Koko…now, we want to share our adventures with you!
Macy is an eight-year-old Coonhound mix (Plott hound/Black and Tan Coonhound). She rescued me when she was just six-weeks-old and we have been inseparable ever since. You will soon learn she has quite the personality! Koko was our foster kitten. Macy and I fell in love with Koko, so we thought she should become a permanent member of the family. She has been with us for just about two years! It’ hard to believe it’s been that long!
Puppaccino is one of the many nicknames I have for Macy and the inspiration for the title of this blog. At some point I’m sure I’ll share all the nicknames I have for both Macy and Koko.
I think that’s enough to get us started! I hope you enjoy following our adventures as we navigate life, start a non-profit and share our thoughts on various pet related topics. I look forward to getting to know you too! Leave us a comment or two, or follow us on twitter (@puppaccino) and we’ll follow you back!
