While we humans cope with the coronavirus outbreak, there’s a silver lining in all this for the animals at Lollypop Farm.

Cait Daly, the vice president and chief operating officer of Lollypop Farm, said the outbreak gave the animals an unexpected gift.

“It actually made more time for enrichment for animals who are in the shelter,” said Daly.

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.
