The Chautauqua County Humane Society is offering special adoption opportunities from 1-7 p.m. Sunday. 

Adoptions done by appointment only and curbside service will be offered. Those interested are asked to click here and fill out an application. The humane society will call to set up an appointment.

“There has never been a better time to adopt or foster a pet from the Chautauqua County Humane Society than right now,” said Kellie Roberts, humane society executive director. “While our opportunity for interpersonal contact has been reduced, spending time with animals is being encouraged.”

The top of the list of recommended activities during this time is to take a dog for a walk. At CCHS we are under direct order from Gov. Andrew Cuomo to limit the number of people in the organization’s building, so volunteering to dog walk right now is not an option. But because animal care has been deemed an essential service in New York state, the humane society is still able to adopt pets to families and send them into temporary foster homes.  

The humane society is looking to adopt pit 10 dogs, 20 cats and a rabbit.

“We also have 17 dogs waiting for foster families,” Roberts said. “The adoption fee will be dropped to just $19 dollars. Help us get them all home.”
