JAMESTOWN The Chautauqua County Humane Society is seeking help to permanently rehome the shelter's Cat Colony residents before phase one remodeling starts in January. The goal is to spare the cats the extra stress of the construction process by finding them homes prior to beginning demolition. The Cat Colony section of the Strunk Road shelter in Jamestown will be revamped as a result of a successful capital campaign conducted last spring and summer that raised $25,000 to cover the costs. The new cat area will allow for an improved quality of life and better hygiene methods that ultimately reduce behavioral issues and increase adoptability.
CCHS is introducing the Buddy System adoption promotion effective immediately. The Buddy System allows the basic adoption fee for one Colony Cat to be reduced to $60.00. If someone is willing to adopt a second Colony Cat or bring a friend that also wants to adopt a cat, the additional adoption fee will be $20 to equal $80 total for both cats. The shelter will be continuing this adoption promotion until the colony room is empty. All cats for this promotion will have been altered, vaccinated, and have a microchip.All adopters must meet standard CCHS adoption criteria. For more information call 665-2209 option 0.
The Chautauqua County Humane Society is a non-profit that is not part of any government organization and its mission to care for animals by promoting adoptions, preventing cruelty and providing education relies solely on public support.
