Lollypop Farm, The Humane Society of Greater Rochester

If your work-related video conferences are getting a bit tedious, you can liven things up by inviting a dog, cat, a pig or even a llama to your next meeting and help a local nonprofit at the same time.

Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester, is making its adoptable shelter pets and farm animals available to attend a virtual meeting through its new "Paw-fice Pals Virtual Meetings" program.

A 20-minute visit costs $100.

Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester, is undergoing renovations that will mean less capacity for dogs over the next several months.

President and CEO Alice Calabrese says the kennels where dogs are held when they first arrive at the shelter will be upgraded to limit the spread of disease and reduce the animals' overall stress level.
