JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (August 19th, 2019) Team and individual registrations are open for the Chautauqua County Humane Society’s (CCHS) 15th Annual Walk 4 Paws.  The walk is Saturday, October 5th at Chautauqua Institution. 

CCHS Director of Community Relations Brian Papalia said “This is a fun, family friendly walk where participants are encouraged to bring along their four legged family members.  The walk is the largest fundraiser of the year for the animals at CCHS and we need every foot and paw we can get walking!”  Participants are encouraged to register and begin fundraising now to help the animals and earn some fantastic prizes for themselves.  Papalia said “The walk kicks off the Halloween Season so we encourage participants and their animals to come in costume. There will be a trophy for best pet costume as well as some other fun treats and prizes!” 

This year the walk is all about community. Papalia said “We will have folks from the Children’s Safety Village, Roger Tory Peterson Institute, The Haunting at the Mall and Country Canines with some fun activities prior to the start of the walk.  Full Moon Rising and Wag Supply Co. will also be on hand with treats for participating dogs.   We are really grateful to have these organizations in our community taking part and are excited that we can work together to create a fun event for participants.
