JAMESTOWN - The Chautauqua County Humane Society is holding the "Race to a Furever Home" and "Pittie Party" through Saturday, May 25.
During this time, the six pit bull breed dogs currently under the organization's care will be offered for adoption at half price. All these dogs have been tested, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and have a microchip in place.
Community Relations Director Roxanne Wendling says "Race to a Furever Home" provides a timely theme and provides an interactive way for Facebook followers to help the dogs get adopted. The society has found its Facebook group gets very excited and offers great support when it announces pet adoptions on our site and is hoping they get involved and participate in the action.
The "Pittie Party" gives a fun focus on a breed that can be more challenging to find permanent homes for because they are often misunderstood. The society is also trying to increase awareness about our ongoing "Fix-a-Bull Program" which provides free spay or neuter surgery to any pit bull or pit mix dog from the 14701 zip code area.
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.
