2024 Pennies 4 Paws Is On Now

Thursday, February 15, 2024



JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (February 5, 2024) Pennies 4 Paws presented by Happy Hounds Hotel and Day Spa, the Chautauqua County Humane Society’s largest fundraiser of the year kicks off Monday, February 12th! CCHS Director of Communication and Fundraising Brian Papalia said, “ This is the 19th year of Pennies, and we are grateful to find such enthusiasm from the community for Pennies 4 Paws each year. We are counting on the community to keep that energy and excitement going in 2024. Whether it’s the Chautauqua Lake Fishing Association who has been our top fundraiser for more than 5 years, Kay Beaver’s efforts with her students at Randolph Elementary, or local businesses that help boost the Pennies effort by hosting money collection canisters, every year it’s community support that helps us reach our goal. We are again asking the community to get involved to help us create a  healthier and more caring community for the animals.” Papalia said it’s easy to get involved, “Get involved by starting a donation drive, holding a penny war, or dress down day. If you would like a canister for your business or to get involved in other ways, we will be happy to help you. When you get involved, we also would love to tell you more about the life saving programs you are supporting.”

We want to thank our sponsors Media One Group Radio, Kinetic by Windstream, Shults Auto Group, Chautauqua Chemicals Company, and the Chautauqua Mall.

The mission of the Chautauqua County Humane Society is to improve and save lives through compassionate care, advocacy for animals, and commitment to the community.

Pennies for Paws continues until April 30th. Please visit or contact. Brian Papalia at 716-665-2209 ext. 213 or
