JAMESTOWN – One of the Chautauqua County Humane Society’s biggest fundraisers kicks off this weekend.

The Chautauqua County Humane Society’s Director of Community Relations, Brian Papalia, says the Pennies for paws will begin February 12th and continues through April 30th.

Papalia says any funds raised will strictly provide for the animal. 

“Funds raised during the campaign stay local and are critical to the proper care and rehabilitation of the animals in our shelter. We do not receive any county, state, or federal funding. In addition to those friendly and healthy animals who enter our facility, many more come to us sick or scared and in need of advanced care. When you support Pennies 4 Paws, you are saving lives,” said Papalia

Papalia, says the team’s aim remains the same, and any contribution made to the cause will be greatly appreciated. 

 “It is imperative that we reach our goal so we can continue the work being done at CCHS. We are asking folks to consider supporting the animals at the CCHS by donating at, creating fundraisers on Facebook, or by dropping spare change in one of our collection containers that can be found at a number of area businesses,” explained Papalia

Pennies 4 Paws overall goal is to collect 2 million pennies, or $20,000. For those looking for more information on the Pennies 4 Paws campaign, or are looking to get involved, please visit You can also contact Partnership Director, Brian Papalia, at 716-665-2209 ext. 213 or
