Do you need help affording food for your pet?
When we think about what an animal shelter does, adopting animals into new homes often comes to mind. And adoption is a large part of what we do at the Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) where we unite well over a thousand animals with new families each year. Something else that is very important to CCHS but might not be thought of as quickly is to help keep pets in the loving homes they already have rather than have them surrendered to a shelter for financial reasons. To this end, the CCHS Pet Pantry is open to Chautauqua County residents who may be struggling to make ends meet.
Once a month residents are welcome to come to our Adoption Center located at 2825 Strunk Road in Jamestown to receive pet food and cat litter.
In partnership with CCHS, the Salvation Army, 83 South Main Street in Jamestown, now also offers a pet food pantry that is available to their approved clients.
The food and cat litter at both locations is made available through generous donations from both individuals and corporations, including most recently the Nestle-Purina Pet Food Factory in Dunkirk. The supply on hand will vary.
Food is available at the Strunk Road location by appointment or during regular CCHS business hours: 1-5:30pm Monday, Tuesday,Wednesday, Friday and 11am to 3pm Saturday.
Clients can get pet food at The Salvation Army from 10am-12pm and 1pm-3:30pm Monday through Friday.
