The Chautauqua County Humane Society kicks off the Season of Hope, presented by Happy Hounds Hotel and Day Spa on Black Friday, November 24th. Brian Papalia of the Chautauqua County Humane Society said, “This is the 6th year for the Season of Hope, and we have a very special opportunity, thanks to the Bissell Pet Foundation and a pair of generous donors, we are able to waive adoptions fees on animals through the duration of the campaign which lasts until Saturday, December 23rd. “

Papalia pointed out that though the fees are waived, the adoption process remains the same, “For folks not familiar with our process there is an adoption form available at CCHS, 2825 Strunk Road in Jamestown or online at That leads to a conversation about a specific animal you may be looking at or to finding the animal that will best fit your lifestyle, and then you meet that animal. Adoptions are generally completed the same day. For dog adopters that already have a dog, there will be an additional dog meeting. Our goal is for everyone involved to have a safe, healthy, and happy experience.” All animals adopted from CCHS have been spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and have had their first dose of flea treatment.

CCHS will have a public kick off to the Season of Hope at its 2nd Chances Thrift Store, 707 Fairmount Avenue during the Small Business Saturday Celebration from 10am to 6pm this Saturday.

The Season of Hope is also made possible with the support of Shults Auto Group, Supportive Divorce Solutions, and Kinetic by Windstream. CCHS is open to the public for adoptions from 1pm to 5:30pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, and 11am to 3pm on Saturday.

The Chautauqua County Humane Society is a 501c3 not for profit organization serving Chautauqua County since 1905. CCHS’s mission is “To improve and save lives through compassionate care, advocacy for animals and commitment to the community.”
