Monday, June 1, 2020




The Chautauqua County Humane Society’s 2nd Chances Thrift Store, 707 Fairmount Avenue in Jamestown, will be accepting donations on a limited basis as Phase Two of New York State's reopening process begins. Donations will be accepted from 10am to 4pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturdays until further notice.  Thrift Store manager Larry Spontaneo said, “We are asking folks to come to the front door of the store and let us know they are here.  We will come out and unload your donations from your car.  That way we are making it more convenient for the donors and safer for everyone in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Spontaneo is also asking folks with larger number of donations to please call ahead to schedule a time to drop off those donations.”  The number for 2nd Chances Thrift Store is 716-664-4504.

2nd Chances Thrift Store is a critical source of funding for the Chautauqua County Humane Society.  CCHS Executive Director Kellie Roberts said, “We know people have been really excited to hear information about the store reopening, and we share that sentiment. The thrift store is responsible for almost a third of our annual income and to have it closed for over two months has been devastating.  We are hoping to be able to announce an opening date soon, and as always we are grateful to those folks that support the 2nd Chances Thrift Store.” 

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.”
