Meet Champ!

Meet Champ!

Poor Champ has been at Lollypop Farm more than once in his life, most recently because his owner could no longer afford to care for him. He is an 11-year-old Chow Chow mix who will stick to you like Velcro - he loves being around his owner. He likes back scratches and chin rubs, and will gladly keep you company any night of the week! He has a great smile, too. Lollypop Farm recommends Champ go to a home with kids age 10 or older, and he needs to meet any dogs already in the home. Lollypop Farm is celebrating Spring Break with 25% off adoption fees on all cats and dogs through Saturday the 19th. Champ is also eligible for the Seniors-for-Seniors program so approved adopters age 60 or older can bring him home for free. To find out more about Champ, call 223-1330 or visit him at Lollypop Farm at 99 Victor Rd., Fairport 14450. Lex, our "Friday's Friend" from last week, is still available!
