Lollipop Memorial Award & Trophy

Ten years after we initiated our companion animal therapy program, we created the Lollipop Memorial Trophy, named for our first Pets and People Foundation therapy dog, a Corgi named Lollipop owned by our founder, Stanley Wald.

The award is given each year to an individual who has demonstrated a continuing sense of Outstanding Service to the Pets & People Foundation Ideals.
