CCHS Dogs Will Visit The CRYB Nutcracker Performances

Saturday, December 1, 2018


Dogs will be taking the stage at the Reg Lenna Center For The Arts as part of the Chautauqua Regional Youth Ballet (CRYB) production of the Nutcracker.   For the second year in a row the dancers have been kind of enough to think of the animals who don't have a home this holiday season, and allow them to have a moment in the spotlight.  Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) Community Relations Director Brian Papalia said "This is such a wonderful opportunity to help find homes for animals at our adoption center, we are excited that CRYB approached us to spotlight some dogs again this year."  

This collaboration was made possible through the efforts of  CCHS Volunteer Sarah Winton, and her furry friend Chloe (pictured above).  Chloe is a former resident of  CCHS, and this will be her second year to be on stage with the performers during the Nutcracker. Sarah is a certified dog trainer and offers dog daycare services through Country Canines.  Learn more about Country Canines. 

CCHS will bring one or more dogs to the stage at the  Nutcracker performances on Thursday December 13th at 10am, Friday December 14th at 7:30pm, and Saturday December 15th at 2pm.   Visit the Chautauqua Regional Youth Ballet for more information on tickets and performances.
