CCHS To Hold Drive Through Pet Pantry December 19th

Tuesday, December 8, 2020


In the spirit of the season, the Chautauqua County Humane Society will be holding a special holiday pet food distribution to ease the strain on pet households that are facing financial difficulties. The drive-through giveaway will be on Saturday, December 19th, from 11am to 1pm, or while supplies last, at the former Sears Auto Center at the Chautauqua Mall.  

This food distribution is made possible with the assistance of grants from the Mabel Anderson Fund and the Edwin L. Danielson Community Service Fund at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation in combination with donations from the community. CCHS Executive Director Kellie Roberts said, “At CCHS, we work hard to help pets that are looking for homes as well as to do what we can for pets who are in loving homes but may need a hand due to the economic impact the coronavirus has had on their families. The grant monies provided through CRCF, food donations from Purina, and the generosity of our community have made it possible for us to provide over 22,000 pounds of kibble and more than 700 cans of food so far in 2020 through the CCHS Pet Pantry, Project Outpour in Dunkirk, and for clients at the Salvation Army in Jamestown.” Roberts also said, “We don’t want people to have to choose between feeding themselves or feeding their pets. We hope this distribution will make the holidays a little bit brighter for families who are in a financial pinch right now.”

Dry dog and cat food will be available at this event. Supplies are limited. All COVID guidelines will be followed and masks will be required. For more information visit or follow the Chautauqua County Humane Society on Facebook.
