Dachshund Gannon

Gannon

How we helped

Seniors for Seniors Adoption Program Grant

Gannon, a small but mighty 12-year old Dachshund, has found himself in and out of Lollypop Farm over the last couple of years due to his sassiness. It seems that in his golden years, he is a bit grumpier and his previous families have had trouble managing and working with his bad manners.

Gus and his dad Dave were inseparable for more than seven years. Even when Dave fell gravely ill, Gus was allowed to move into Dave’s room in a hospice home. Gus spent his days comforting Dave, but also visiting other residents, many of whom had lost their pets when moving into hospice.

Penelope

Penelope

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

Love is blind and Penelope would agree. This sweet, 15-year-old Shih Tzu found herself at a shelter in New York because her family could no longer care for her. She needed both of her eyes removed due to untreated issues, and the cost of treatment and time to heal were both too much for the shelter to handle.
