Want to help represent the Lollypop Guild?

The Lollypop Farm in Fairport has a call out for material and financial donations. I've copied it below if you would like to offer your assistance to a very deserving shelter.

"Hi fellow pet lovers. Consider donating your CL item to Lollipop, or make a cash donation. Visit the animals, too. They need to see some friendly faces. Maybe bring one home with you? You will not regret it, and neither will they."

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, dogs, rabbits, and guinea pigs. (My note: GPs=no food with multicolored pieces, corn, etc. oxbow is best, kaytee adequate (not fiesta), fruit branches are bad, check online at guinealynx before you send anything you're not positive about).
