CCHS Announces 13 Black Cats Promotion

Friday, September 30, 2022

A mysterious supporter has stepped in to help the black cats at the Chautauqua County Humane Society this Halloween season.  We are happy to announce the 13 LUCKY Black Cats promotion. This mysterious supporter will be covering the adoption fees of at least 13 black cats through the month of October.

It’s time to bust the black cat myth at Halloween: there is no reason for animal shelters and rescues to avoid adopting out black cats near Halloween, under the mistaken belief that people with evil intentions will use them for ritualized abuse or sacrifice. On the contrary, with October 27th being National Black Cat Day, now is a great time to adopt a black cat!

Be sure to meet your next feline family member at our Subaru Loves Pets adoption event on Saturday, October 15th at Shults Nissan Subaru on Fluvanna Avenue in Jamestown from 12-3p and our Howl-O-Ween Raffle Adoption Event on from 12 to 3pm on Saturday, October 29th.

While the adoption fee is covered by our mysterious supporter, all standard adoption procedures will apply. 

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.”   


CCHS Reduces Kitten Adoption Fee and Holds A Second Mall Event

Tuesday, September 20, 2022

We have SO MANY kittens at the Chautauqua County Humane Society that we are holding a second Pawp-up adoption event at the Chautauqua Mall this Saturday from 12-3! The adoption fee will be $50 for one and $75 for two kittens, which is half the cost of the adoption fee. Standard adoption procedures will still apply.
This is your opportunity to get a cute little 3-pound kitten that has never spent a night at CCHS, okay maybe a night or two.
All animals adopted from CCHS have been spayed or neutered, are up to date on medical, microchipped, and have had a dose of flea treatment. Get to the mall for the Kitten Pawp-Up this Saturday from 12-3pm.
Learn more at Thanks to Media One Radio Group, WNY News Now, Happy Hounds Hotel and Day Spa, and Dave Warren Auto group for making this event possible.

Chautauqua County Department Of Health Announces Rabies Clinic September 24

Wednesday, September 7, 2022

The Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services (CCDHHS) Division of Public Health has announced a free rabies vaccination clinic. The clinic will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2022 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Town of Carroll Town Hall at 5 W. Main St. in Frewsburg, N.Y. This clinic will be a drive-in clinic and animals must be pre-registered to receive vaccinations. Vaccinations will be provided free of charge to all dogs, cats, and domesticated ferrets three months of age and older.


The Town of Carroll, along with the Chautauqua County Division of Public Health will co-sponsor the clinic. Dr. Mary Fales will be the attending veterinarian. To pre-register online for the Town of Carroll clinic, click here.


There are a limited number of spots available at these clinics, so pet owners should pre-register online as soon as possible. If you register but decide not to attend the event, please cancel your appointment so the spot is available for another pet. You can cancel appointments via the confirmation email you receive when you register. Walk-ins may be accepted, but are not guaranteed.


At the clinic, vehicles will enter and follow the established traffic pattern on-site. Pet owners will stay in their vehicles with their pets, unless otherwise instructed. Pet owners must bring previous rabies vaccination records for each animal receiving a shot to ensure proper and effective vaccination; clinic staff will confirm previous rabies vaccination records. All dogs must be on a leash. All cats must be in a carrier. Animal handlers will transport animals from the vehicle to the veterinarian for vaccination.


New York State Public Health Law requires each dog, cat, and domesticated ferret over the age of four months be vaccinated against rabies. County residents are encouraged to be responsible pet owners by having their pets vaccinated.


Rabies is a very serious disease of warm-blooded animals caused by a virus. Raccoons, bats, skunks, and foxes are common disease carriers. The virus is transmitted to humans and animals through saliva and can enter the body through a bite, scratch, or open cut. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system and can cause brain swelling and ultimately death within days of the onset of symptoms.
