Calling All Pet Parents - $19 Adoptions Sunday March 22

Tuesday, March 10, 2020


Here is HOW you can adopt:


The Chautauqua County Humane Society is in need of pet parents!  CCHS is offering special adoption opportunities from 1 to 7pm Sunday, March 22nd.  Adoptions done by appointment only and curbside service will be offered. Go right now to the adoptable animals page at and find the dog or cat that you are interested in and fill out the application under the adoption tab.  We will call you to set up your appointment. We need to get 10 dogs up for adoption and have another 17 that need a foster family. We also have 20 cats and 1 rabbit looking for homes. The adoption fee will be dropped to just nineteen dollars. Help us get them all home. 


Here is WHY you should adopt:


There has NEVER been a better time to adopt or foster a pet from the Chautauqua County Humane Society than right now.  While our opportunity for interpersonal contact has been reduced, spending time with animals is being encouraged.  

The top of the list of recommended activities during this time is to take a dog for a walk.  At CCHS we are under direct order from Governor Andrew Cuomo to limit the number of people in our building, so volunteering to dog walk right now is not an option. But because animal care has been deemed an essential service in New York State, CCHS is still able to adopt pets to families and send them into temporary foster homes.  

The benefits of adding a pet to the family whether through adoption or fostering include:

-A companion to get you through lonely and boring times you may be experiencing at home as a result of recent changes in your life due to COVID-19 restrictions.

-Having more time to teach your children about the responsibility of caring for a pet.

-Being able to have time at home with your new pet to allow them to grow into your family.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering please visit to fill out the adoption form.  We will call you to set up an appointment to come in to meet the pet you are interested in.  

Be assured that the Chautauqua County Humane Society is taking every precaution to keep all visitors and staff as safe as possible.  Appointments will be staggered to allow for thorough cleaning of surfaces between each visitor.
