CCHS Season Of Hope Adoption Drive A Success

Sunday, December 29, 2019


JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (December 29, 2019) The Chautauqua County Humane Society is proud to announce that the Season Of Hope Adoption drive was a success!  102 animals went home during the Holiday Season of Black Friday, November 29th to Monday, December 23rd.  CCHS teamed up with Happy Hounds Hotel and Day Spa and Media One Group Radio  (SE-93, 101.9 WHUG, Rock 103, Kiss 106.9, 1240 & 101.3 WJTN, and 1340 WKSN) for the drive.


CCHS Community Relations Director Brian Papalia said “We are so happy to see 102 animals go home during the Season of Hope drive.  With the short Holiday season this year it was no guarantee that we would make our goal.  Also with a drive of this kind it's important to point out that we are not just handing animals out.  We go through the same processes and protocols that we use for every adoption throughout the year to ensure we are making the best match possible."


The Lakewood, NY and Erie, PA PetSmart stores were key to reaching the goal.  Papalia said "If it weren't for our amazing partnership with PetSmart we would not have reached our goal.  In the last days we received the final adoption total of the prior two weeks, which was 18 and that is what put us over the top."


While the Season of Hope was a success for the third year in a row, there are still plenty of animals looking for homes.  As we look towards 2020 we are continuing to work hard to find loving homes for as many animals as possible. View available animals and learn more about the Chautauqua County Humane Society at, Facebook, and Instagram.
