JAMESTOWN - The Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) is holding a bike raffle to help raise the funds for the Cat Colony Renewal Project campaign that is currently underway.
CCHS is raffling off a new bicycle and customizable accessory package valued at $500 graciously donated by the Jamestown Cycle Shop. There is a sample bike on display in the CCHS Adoption Center Lobby. The winner will have the option to choose a bike and accessory package that fits his/her needs.
The winning ticket will be drawn on Saturday, Sept. 15. Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at the Strunk Road Adoption Center, 2nd Chances Thrift Store in the Fairmount Plaza and the Jamestown Cycle Shop.
The Cat Colony Renewal Project involves a plan to renovate the existing space where cats are housed in the CCHS shelter. The reconstruction will give the felines a better quality of life while awaiting adoption. Hygiene will be improved by updating to surfaces that are more easily sanitized. Feline stress will be reduced with more space and climbing options, and adoptability will be enhanced with an improved public viewing window wall along with an updated "Get Acquainted Room." The goal for the project is $25,000 and currently the capital campaign is nearly half way to the goal.
If anyone is interested in selling tickets for this effort, contact Sue Bloom at 665-2209, Ext. 205. For more information on CCHS, call 665-2209 or visit www.spcapets.com.
