The Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) invites you to their Open House to showcase the building expansion and completion of the ‘More Than a Shelter’ building and renovation project. They will also celebrate and highlight their donors and the volunteers who contributed 28,901 hours to the care of animals at the shelter last year.

The event will be held Saturday, April 30 from 10am until 4pm at their Strunk Road location.

“There is no better way for our staff and board of directors to honor all of those who make our shelter go round,” said CCHS Executive Director, Jeff Lubi. “It is because of our volunteers, donors, grantors and foundations, that we were able to successfully complete our building and expansion project to provide the best care possible to the animals of our region,” said Lubi.

The building and renovation project included a 2,000 square foot expansion to provide space for a new canine communal housing program which doubled CCHS’ canine capacity. The renovation added an additional surgery room/prep room and expanded the recovery room. Redesigns also included a new visitor welcome area with two private adoption stations and better access to their get acquainted rooms.

The mission of the Chautauqua County Humane Society is to promote the adoption of animals, prevent all forms of animal cruelty and neglect, shelter lost, abandoned and homeless animals, and to provide education about the humane treatment of animals.
