The Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) is teaming up with Happy Hounds Hotel and Day Spa for the Season of Hope adoption drive! From Black Friday, November 26th now through Thursday December 23rd we are working to make sure one hundred animals end up in loving homes through adoption or fostering.

CCHS Partnership Director Brian Papalia said “We currently have thirty-nine cats and twenty-five dogs up for adoption as well as forty-six animals in foster that will become available throughout the season. There are always plenty of personalities and age ranges to choose from.”

Brian also said, “We are excited to announce that the Chautauqua County Humane Society’s Adoption Center located at 2825 Strunk Road in Jamestown, has open lobby hours to the public for cat adoptions. The lobby is open from 1pm to 5:30pm Mondays through Wednesdays and Fridays and from 11am to 3pm on Saturday. Dog adoptions will continue to be appointment only. Papalia said, “National studies conducted during the pandemic have shown that doing dog adoptions by appointment is far less stressful for the dogs and gives them a greater chance of being adopted when they meet their people.”

There will be three Season of Hope adoption events that will give holiday shoppers the opportunity to meet their potential new family member. Papalia said, “We will have animals at the CCHS 2nd Chances Thrift Store from 10am to 2pm on Black Friday, November 26th, at the Chautauqua Mall from 12pm to 4pm on Saturday, November 27th and Saturday, December 18th. We want to thank Media One Radio Group, The Chautauqua Mall, WNY News Now, JB Liquor, Brookdale Lakewood, SKF, Howard Hanna, and B & L Wholesale for making the Season Of Hope possible.”
