Become A CCHS Animal Ally Today

Thursday, April 30, 2020


Right now the pets at CCHS could really use you as an Animal Ally. 

The Chautauqua County Humane Society is taking the opportunity to hold an Animal Ally drive. The goal of the drive is to enlist 100 people as new Animal Allies by May 31st. CCHS Director of Community Relations Brian Papalia said, “If 2020 has proven anything, it’s that the unforeseen is always right around the corner. The pets that rely on CCHS need allies through not only these challenging times, but all the time. The Animal Ally monthly donation program was created for that very purpose.  It’s a great way to come together and be part of something bigger that benefits the shelter pets.”  

While COVID-19 has forced social distancing, becoming an Animal Ally is a great way to join with others and get involved.  Papalia had this to say, “We understand that folks are being impacted. We also know there is still a strong desire to be a part of something positive in the community.  We are asking folks to show these homeless pets their love and support with a gift of ten dollars per month.  Our goal is for 100 people to become Animal Allies at a level of $10 a month. That would be a thousand dollars a month for the pets at the shelter and that will impact a lot of lives.”

Once a person signs up to become an #CCHSAnimalAlly at, they will receive special updates regarding adoptions and other shelter happenings that show the lives that are being changed with their gift. Papalia said, “There will also be some fun surprises that pop up along the way.  We want our Animal Allies to know they are special and that their gift is appreciated and, even more significantly, that their gift is making a real difference for the animals who need us.”  You can become an #CCHSAnimalAlly today with a visit to
