It's March. The budget is due on April 1.

It's time for our state legislators to speak out for the Companion Animal Capital Fund in their respective conferences. Please email them today with our simple message.

Companion Animal Capital Fund grants have changed the face of shelters across NYS. The Fund was in the budget since FY17-18 and because of COVID was not included last year. We have pivotal support from our champions, Assemblywoman Deborah Glick and State Senator Joseph Addabbo. We also have support from the chairs of the respective Agriculture Committees--Donna Lupardo in the Assembly and Michelle Hinchey in the Senate. 

Please take a moment and send an email. 
It’s quick and easy!  

As always, thank you.

CCHS St Pawtrick's Adoption Event March 12th and 13th

Tuesday, March 2, 2021

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (March 2, 2021) The Chautauqua County Humane Society’s (CCHS) St. Pawtrick’s adoption event returns to the Chautauqua Mall March 12th and 13th.  This is one of the organizations largest adoption events of the year and CCHS will have plenty of available pets looking for homes.  Partnership Director Brian Papalia said “We are having an incredible run of events at the Chautauqua Mall and are looking forward to an exciting St Pawtrick’s Weekend.  We are truly fortunate to have community partners like Happy Hounds Hotel and Day Spa, Chautauqua Mall, and Media One Group Radio to help us make this event possible.  Even with COVID looming in 2020 we were able to get 13 pets into loving homes and this year we hope to have at least that many adoptions.”  The event is also made possible with the support of B&L Wholesale Supply, Customized Management Strategies, JB Liquor, and SKF Aeroengine Service North America.

The St. Pawtrick’s Event is a great opportunity for folks to support the pets that rely on CCHS with a Pennies 4 Paws donation.  Papalia said, “Pennies 4 Paws is one of the cornerstones of financial support for the pets that rely on CCHS Services and the gesture of dropping off those donations during one of our events is a life changing show of affection for so many pets in need.”

Make plans to stop by the Chautauqua County Humane Society’s St. Pawtrick’s adoption event at the Chautauqua Mall from 3pm to 7pm Friday, March 12th and 12pm to 4pm on Saturday, March 13th.  There are always opportunities to see all available pets and get a preview of who will be up for adoption at the St. Pawtrick’s event at and on the CCHS Facebook Page. 

The Chautauqua County Humane Society is a 501(C)(3) 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.”  Find out more at
