Donuts Delite master baker and owner Nick Semeraro has collaborated with Lollypop Farms to create Doggie Donuts for people.
These donuts were, ahem, unleashed, Tuesday and are available for take-out, dine-in, patio seating and delivery at the Donuts Delite location at the corner of Empire and Culver Roads in Rochester, N.Y.
A portion of the proceeds for the Doggie Donuts will be donated to Lollypop Farms, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester.
“Last week, Donuts Delite helped raise over $6,000 through donut pre-orders that were taken online to raise money for homeless and abused animals in need,” Semeraro said in a statement. “We look forward to a busy week of selling more Doggie Donuts to help this great organization.”
Added Salvatore “SoccerSam” Fantauzzo, founder of Donuts Delite and Salvatore’s Old Fashioned Pizzeria and Rochester Lancers owner: “I am extremely proud of Nick and his staff for representing Salvatore’s at the historic Donuts Delite Building. We all love visiting Lollypop Farms and this cause helps bring awareness to the great work they do.”
The Walk for the Animals at Barktober Fest is Lollypop Farm’s annual walk to raise funds that support services and programs for homeless and abused pets in the Rochester community.
Registration for the 23rd annual event is open for on-campus, socially distanced walks on Saturday, Sept. 26 or for a home-based block party.
