Pet of the Week: Rippy

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)— Meet Rippy! He is a sweet seven-year-old mixed breed, and he needs a home!

He’s happiest when he is visiting his friends in the offices, but finds a kennel environment very stressful. He also loves toys, treats, and relaxing with his people.

One thing to know, Rippy is Heartworm positive and needs to avoid anything that may elevate his heart rate including stress. We’re looking for a quiet home where he can recover.

Rippy is available through a variety of programs including the Adoption Sleepover Program and the Seniors-for-Seniors program. The sleepover program will allow Rippy’s future family to receive support from the Lollypop Farm veterinary team until he has fully recovered. The senior’s program can send him home with an approved adopter 60-years or older for free.

His adoption fee has been waived!

Stop by Lollypop Farm and meet Rippy today! He needs a friend now more than ever.
