Monday, June 25, 2018





JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (June 25, 2018) The Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) held its inaugural Healthy Pet Clinic Saturday, June 23rd, 2018, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Jamestown.  Fifty people brought fifty-six animals to the clinic to receive basic veterinary services.

 CCHS Executive Director Kellie Roberts says “It was great to see such positive response from the community for a first time program that has been in the works for nearly 3 years."  The final count of animals that received services were 43 dogs and 13 cats. Roberts thanked Father Luke Fodor and St. Luke’s Church for allowing CCHS to use the church’s under croft for the Healthy Pet Clinic.  Roberts saysSt. Luke’s has really provided a perfect space for us to hold our Healthy Pet Clinic, and we appreciate their willingness and excitement to host such a unique event that benefits our community.”

The Jessie Smith Darrah Fund and the Ingrid M. Dawson Memorial Fund at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation make this and future clinics possible.  The Media One Group of Radio Stations were also instrumental in promoting the clinic.

CCHS already has three future Healthy Pet Clinics on the calendar.  The next clinic is in the north county at the Pet Pantry in Dunkirk from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, July 21st.  Clinics are also scheduled for Saturday, July 28th and Saturday, August 25th from 10am to 2pm in the south county at St. Luke’s Church, 410 North Main Street in Jamestown.
