CCHS Pet Clinic Set For Saturday

The Chautauqua County Humane Society will hold its next healthy pet clinic for the public from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Jamestown.

No appointments will be necessary. The clinic will operate on a first-come, first-served basis, and is for healthy dogs and cats only.

The clinic is a one stop wellness shop with participants having their visit with local veterinarian Harry Shaw. In addition to a basic examination and core vaccinations, deworming and other wellness services will be provided as needed and there will be the option to purchase flea and tick products at special CCHS pricing, including Seresto collars, Advantage II for cats, and K9 Advantix II.

Brian Papalia, Chautauqua County Humane Society community relations director, thanked Father Luke Fodor, Kim Mann and the parishioners at St. Luke’s for their help and the use of the church’s undercroft.

“We would also like to extend our thanks to the Bertha Hamilton Trust at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation for the funding that makes these clinics possible for our friends and neighbors,” Papalia said. “We are also very thankful to Happy Hounds Hotel and Day Spa for the support they are giving the Healthy Pet Clinics in 2019.”

Participants should come prepared with dogs properly leashed and cats in carriers. Cash and credit cards will be accepted. Pet owners are asked to bring any previous rabies vaccination certificates and any veterinarian records from the past year, if available. A small co-pay will be requested for the basic services, although receiving care is not based on one’s ability to pay. Other services, including heartworm, Lyme disease, and feline leukemia testing, will be available at a low cost.
