Humane Society To Hold Pet Costume Parade
LAKEWOD — Team and individual registrations are open for the Chautauqua County Humane Society’s Walk for Paws Pet Costume Parade.
The walk will be held Saturday, Oct. 30, at the Chautauqua Mall.
Registration forms are available at Chqhumane.org and at the Chautauqua County Humane Society’s 2nd Chances Thrift Store, 707 Fairmount Ave., Jamestown.
“Whether forming teams or participating as individuals the fundraising efforts of the community are so important to the care of the pets that rely on CCHS services, there are also great prizes for those that fundraise,” said Brian Papalia, director of community relation. “We are really excited to partner up with the Chautauqua Mall for the Walk for Paws Pet Costume Parade again this year.
“We be putting the spotlight on a very special guest for this year’s walk,” he added. “A dog named Ledger who was adopted from CCHS in July of 2019 and has won some of the highest trick training awards offered by the American Kennel Club.
“We will also have Carly Davis of CHQ Dogs on hand with a special presentation of 100 things you can do with a box which is a fun interactive dog training opportunity that participants will get to experience. We are also happy to announce that Paul Clemente of Karate Sleepover will be hosting the pet costume contest. We will also have pets on hand during the walk that will be up for adoption, so for those folks who may be hesitant to come to the walk because they don’t have a pet, we may be able to hook you up with a new family member. We are looking forward to a fun and exciting day to benefit the pets that rely on the Chautauqua County Humane Society.”
