PENNIES 4 PAWS CAMPAIGN KICKS OFF
JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (February 15, 2021) – The Chautauqua County Humane Society’s (CCHS) annual Pennies 4 Paws campaign presented by Happy Hounds Hotel and Day Spa kicked off on February 12th with a goal to collect 1,000,000 pennies to benefit the pets that rely on the shelter’s essential services.
Your Pennies 4 Paws support will help dogs like Wyatt and Garth (photo attached) find their adoptive families. Wyatt and Garth arrived at CCHS last March after they were rescued from a trailer in Panama, NY along with 12 other dogs. In 2020, CCHS helped Wyatt, Garth, and hundreds of other animals with a variety of needs including food, shelter, and medical care. CCHS Partnership Director Brian Papalia said, “The essential services provided by CCHS have stayed strong through these difficult times created by the COVID-19 Pandemic thanks to continued community support. Every penny donated stays local and goes directly to the care of so many great pets waiting to go home. This year anyone interested in participating in Pennies 4 Paws will be able to drop off donations or pick-up money collection canisters during any of our Chautauqua Mall adoption events. The calendar of events can be found at Chqhumane.org.”
Pennies 4 Paws is sponsored by Happy Hounds Hotel and Day Spa, The Media One Radio Group, The Chautauqua Mall, B&L Wholesale Supply, Blackstone Advanced Technologies, Customized Management Strategies, JB Liquor, Jamestown Macadam, JB Liquor, SKF, and 2nd Chances Thrift Store.
CCHS encourages schools, social organizations, individuals, and businesses to find creative ways to become involved. Online donations can be made here.

Newly Named Petco Love Invests in Lifesaving Work of the Chautauqua County Humane Society.
Grant of $7,500 will help save more pet lives in Chautauqua County.
The Chautauqua County Humane Society announced today a $7,500 grant investment from the newly named, Petco Love, to support their lifesaving work for animals in Chautauqua County.
Petco Love is a nonprofit leading change for pets nationally by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since their founding in 1999 as the Petco Foundation, they’ve empowered organizations with $300 million invested to date in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. And, they’ve helped find loving homes for more than 6.5 million pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations, like ours, nationwide.
“Petco Love announces an investment in the Chautauqua County Humane Society and hundreds of other organizations as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, President of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only one component. In April, we also launched the first of our national tools to empower all animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”
“These lifesaving funds will change the lives of hundreds of animals that rely on our facility for daily care as they wait to meet their adoptive families. Petco Love’s support through this $7,500 grant is so greatly appreciated.” said Kellie Roberts, CCHS Executive Director.
