Pets of the Week
This week we are featuring “Duckie” and “Jack”. Duckie is a 2 1/2 year old Chihuahua. He is a nice guy that loves attention, but he can be a bit nervous around little kids so a home where he doesn’t have to be with them would be best. Jack is a very friendly 5 year old kitty that can be quite the talker. He will need to stay on a special diet of prescription food to keep him healthy. If you have room in your heart and your home for either of these, or any other, great pet awaiting their 2nd chance for a great life, stop by the Strunk Road Adoption Center to meet your new best friend! For more information or questions, please call (716) 665-2209 ext. 200,
Snoopy and Midnight. Snoopy is a 6 year old terrier mix. He loves to go for walks and does know some commands. He can do well in a home with a calmer, older dog but he will chase cats so no cats. He needs a family that understands that sometimes he just likes things his way and is willing to work with his quirks. Midnight is a beautiful long haired 8 year old kitty. He likes attention and will sit with you for petting. He will need weekly brushing to keep his coat looking great. If you are able to grant either of these pets their wish for a forever home, please stop by the Strunk Road Adoption Center to meet them. They, and all the great pets there, are hoping to have their own home for the holidays. For questions or more information, please call (716) 665-2209 ext. 200.

This week we are featuring “Tinkerbell” and “Thurman”. Tinkerbell is a nice 6 year old kitty that would really prefer the quiet life in a forever home. Shelter life is a bit stressful for her, so she will need time in a new home to adjust and patient people to give her that time. She is truly a diamond in the rough. Thurman is a 3 year old outgoing, fun loving guy that loves a good time. He needs a bit of training and someone to guide him. He will chase cats, so for their sake he needs a no cat home. With the right family, both of this pets will bloom into terrific forever friends. If you have the place in your heart and home for either of these, or any of the pets at CCHS, please stop in at the Strunk Road Adoption Center. You will be glad you did!

Missy is a beautiful 2 1/2 year old gray kitty. She is missing an eye, probably due to an old injury. Because of this, it would be best if she was an inside only cat.

This beautiful cat is approaching his third birthday. He is short haired, color of honey or caramels, with beautiful white accents. He was surrendered by his owners and hates being caged. He is friendly unless he doesn't get enough free time, then he gets pretty feisty about being kept in or returned to his cage, so he really needs a home where he can move about. He seems to get along with the other cats fine. Neutered and up to date on his shots, Caramel is a wonderful pet-to-be.
This attractive three year old cat has lots of reasons not to trust humans. She was abandoned and left locked in without food and water for an unknown length of time. However, Vanna has not lost her sweetness and her love for people, and comes right up to be petted as soon as anyone comes near her cage. She has medium fur, white with splotches of black, with a scalloped black "cap" on her head. Spayed and up to date on her shots, this gal gets along fine with the others in her cage, and is a favorite with many of our volunteers due to her friendly, loving disposition. She needs a home where she can be sure she will always have food and water, as well as lots of love.
Buster and Latte: These two guys are almost five months old, but very small for their age. Although they had a rough start, they are full of pep and very sweet. Buster, a black tuxedo with an adorable twist of white on his muzzle, lost his left eye but never lost his penchant for playing and life. Latte, his littermate, is a light orange tuxedo cat with small touches of white on the tips of his paws. They were in foster care together during a bout of respiratory illness, but remained snuggly and playful through it all. Very loving, active, and absolutely adorable, both have been neutered and are up to date on their shots.
These two guys were adopted as kittens 10 years ago, and recently returned. Fortunately, they are adjusting well after losing their lifetime home. Both are large cats that are very good with children and dogs, have been neutered, and are up to date on all shots. Tigger is a striking dark orange with bits of white on his face, vest and tips of some of his toes. BamBam is a long haired gray with a touch of white. Although they need a special diet, they are very active and involved. We are hoping they can get a forever home that really is forever, and since they have been together their whole lives, we will offer the pair for only one adoption fee.
Named for his shortened tail, this eight month old is a darling! He is mostly orange with a beautiful white vest, and of course, the shorter tail, which is about 2/3 what might be expected. The best thing about him, however, is his wonderful personality. He is very calm and friendly, gets along with other cats, and is very good-natured. Presently, he is getting one half of an allergy pill, which he swallows easily with no problem. This guy is sure to be a well-loved and loving pet!
This handsome, friendly boy would love a lap to snuggle up on. He is a very affectionate and loving cat. He is positive for feline deficiency virus, which means he has a weakened immune system, but is showing no symptoms. He is more susceptible to infections and his new owner would need to be aware and be sure he is treated promptly if he gets an infection. He also needs to have his vaccines kept up to date so he can remain healthy. He should be the only cat in the household, as he doesn't like other cats, and should be as free from stress as possible. Contact us for more information about FIV.
Missy is black with a tiger face, and is about 6 years old. Zeus is a black shorthair, age 7 years. They are both spayed/neutered, and came to us already declawed. These two are very sweet, loving, friendly animals.
Flynn was born in spring 2016, and is presently in a foster home where he gets along great with other animals and the children. He is neutered, up to date on his shots, and really needs to get to his forever home soon. A short haired tabby, he has lots of white markings and is very attractive and also sweet and friendly.
Dante: If you like a cat with a little personality, Dante might interest you. Feral when he arrived in our custody, he settled down, but he still has that "spark" He's always watching you with those big green eyes. Dante is going on 4 years old, mostly black with interesting white highlights, and is neutered and up to date on his shots.
Shadow has spent the longest time of any of our cats at LHS. She is one of our "Lonely Hearts," so her adoption fee is $30 to an approved adopter. Shadow tends to be shy, but she is sweet, and should develop well in a patient, loving home. Over the years, she has been kenneled with different cats so she probably would not have problems getting along with other cats.
Blake: This handsome young fellow is very laid back and friendly. He is a short haired white with some interesting markings of brown/tiger, such as those shown on his face and his "hat" Sadly, he was left behind by his owner, but a cat as nice as this one will be welcome in any home looking for a good feline pet.
For Blake, we are reducing his fee by 50% until the end of the year.
Tidy and Lucky: These are two of three buddies that were taken in together from an unfortunate situation. Their short brown tabby fur is enhanced with wonderful white markings and accents. They are neutered and up to date on their shots, and make wonderful housemates because they are such good pals. If you adopt them together, we will give you a special lower adoption fee. If you have room for a third cat, their buddy, we will be glad to negotiate a very special rate so they can have a home together!
"Pick a Pair"
Tiger and Dante came from different places, but they have become good chums and affectionate towards each other. Dante, a black and white longhair, is about 3 1/2 years old, and came to us quite feral. He is used to people now, but still has a bit of an attitude. Tiger is about four years old, and is a friendly short haired brown tabby. Both cats love to be petted. They are neutered and up to date on shots, so ready to go to a forever home. To cement their friendship, we are offering a special adoption rate, ($50 for both.)
Shadow and Ellen
These are two of three female cats surrendered to us in an emergency. Although they were wonderful mothers, only one kitten from the three litters survived. These mothers are both black shorthair and look a lot alike, although Ellen has a small white spot on her throat and green eyes, while Shadow is all black with distinctive brown eyes. They are very bonded and would lick each other while caring for the kittens. Both are very friendly and love people. They lived with a dog so probably could adjust. If you can provide a good home for these two, we are offering a special adoption fee of $50 for both, which includes shots and spaying.
Dogs are available for adoption: All dog adoptions require a pre-home visit and references will be checked.
Aries: When you look into the sad eyes of this extraordinary dog, you can see how much he wants you to take him home and make him a part of your family. Aries was purchased off the streets as a two week old puppy in a horrible snow storm. He was bottle fed and cared for by an amazing family who couldn't keep him. Aries is a top dog and needs to be the only dog in the household. He is used to being the protector for his people and becomes very easily attached. He needs a strong handler who can bond with him and teach him how to be in a pack environment. Aries, having a lot of energy, suffers from anxiety in the kennel environment. He enjoys car rides, hiking and being close with his owner, and he is learning. Due to his anxiety in the shelter Aries is losing weight and has broken his teeth chewing at the kennel. He needs a home where he can uncaged and hang out with his people. Because of his size and level of energy we recommend that he be in a home with older children., and a fenced yard would be great.
This very sweet seven year old female Pit-bull, who is a gorgeous brindle color, was bred constantly before we got her. A sweet, gentle, loving animal, she is about 7-8 years old, and just loves people and attention. She is good with cats and kids, but needs to be the only dog in the household. She may need some training to become housebroken, as she spent most of her time in a crate. All references will be checked including the veterinarian’s, and a pre-home visit is mandatory for all dog adoptions. She is spayed and up to date on her shots.
Carly is a wonderful six year old English Coonhound. She is a very nice friendly girl, spayed, vaccinated and ready for a good home.
Yara is a 55-pound Staffordshire Terrier, all muscle and love. She has one brown ear and one poka-dotted ear, which she quirks up in the air when she is listening to you. --she keeps her kennel clean and wants nothing more than to be with people. Yara is selective about which dogs she likes, but did live with a small male dog in the past. She cannot be in a home with cats--they are too tempting to chase!
Dora is a well-behaved seven-year-old black lab. She has a comically deep voice for a lady, and isn't shy about letting you know she wants attention! She exhibits the typical lab qualities: she is intelligent, observant, and quick to learn. She also loves everyone she's met so far! Unfortunately, Dora has issues with her legs--she has hip dysplasia and her front legs get tired easily from carrying her body weight. She will be on medication for the rest of her life for joint support and arthritis, but she doesn't let that get her down! She will need frequent but easy exercise to keep her healthy.
Our best guess is that squatty Mack is part mastiff, part something shorter. He is two years old, and loves nothing more than giving kisses, being hugged, and sitting beside you, smiling ear-to-ear. He is about 70 pounds of pure, dense love. As a puppy, he was found in a snowstorm, and his rescuers held onto him as long as they could. Now, Mack is looking for a home all his own, but he will gladly share the couch with you! Mack does like to dig, using his big paws like shovels, so he cannot be left unattended in a fenced yard.
Rescued from a busy Buffalo highway, Zeus, a shepherd mix, is a giant goofball. He is only about 2 and still has some filling out to do; once he's a "big boy" he will reach about 90 pounds. Because of his size, he would do well with older children. Zeus loves to play and loves to cuddle; he keeps his kennel clean and knows several tricks. He does still need some work, though, especially with walking nicely on a leash. He does not get along well with other male dogs, though he may take to a female. He is highly intelligent and tries hard to please his people. This is the perfect dog for a strong, active owner.
Rocky is a 2-year-old boxer mix, and he also has polka dots! He is very playful, and needs to learn a few basic manners. He loves balls, hugs, treats, and playing tag (if he tackles you, you're "It"). We are still getting to know Rocky, as he was brought to us after being picked up as a stray.
Despite Nacho's little white muzzle, he is young: only about 1.5 years old. He is a chihuahua mix that was found as a stray. Nacho does not mind cats, but he refuses to be crated. He is great about playing on his own if he has toys; he will throw them and chase them. He loves people and will let you know if he is feeling lonely. Because he is still so thrilled by food, we are working with Nacho to slow down while he eats, and to chew his treats before he swallows them.
Murphy is about three months old, with LOTS of energy. He may be part Jack Russel, and something a bit floofier. He does not care for other dogs, but LOVES cats. Like any puppy, Murphy will require lots of training to teach him house manners and basic commands. He will be neutered at the end of December.
You can visit any of our dogs at the shelter at
7540 N. Gale Street in Westfield. We're open from
1-3pm Monday through Saturday or you can make

Did you make a New Year's resolution to work off some pounds? How about adding a dog into your home and into your exercise routine? We have some wonderful dogs that LOVE their walks or ball playing time in the yards. Many of the dogs can be seen online at www.caninerescue.org
Sadly, Frankie didn't get his Christmas wish of a home. We hope he finds one in the New Year though! Frankie is a great dog who will tire you out before you tire him out playing ball. He's just a big strong goofball who keeps a very neat kennel and has been patiently waiting for the right person to come along. Someone who needs Frankie as much as Frankie needs that special someone!
Maybe you can't adopt but have extra time on your hands? Go to the website and fill out a volunteer application or stop by the shelter during open hours from 1-3pm Monday-Saturday and pick up an application there. There are a number of ways you can help out either hands on with the dogs weekdays, evenings or weekends or with events, fundraising or other things. The shelter is located at 7540 N. Gale St. in Westfield and their phone number is 716-326-7297. You'll make new two and four legged friends for sure!
Shelter hours have just expanded to include Saturday; the shelter is now open Monday to Saturday from 1-3pm or by calling 326-7297 to make an appointment for another time. We hope that by adding the Saturday hours we will make it easier for more people to stop by and check out the dogs. The shelter is located at 7540 N. Gale St. in Westfield; most of the available dogs can be seen online at www.caninerescue.org. Dogs can change frequently; if there is one you are interested in don't hesitate-put in your application as soon as possible!
Have you wondered about how you can help the dogs?
We are always looking for volunteers to work shifts, help at events, even just do yard work. Haven't got the time to volunteer? How about helping financially and donating your empty nickel deposit cans and bottles. Several of the local redemption centers such as Get Your Nickel Back in Fredonia, Don's Car Wash in Lakewood and Farm Fresh Variety Store Bottle & Can Redemption in Jamestown will even take your returns and send us the money!
Another painless way is by shopping via Amazon Smile and designating Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue as your charity of choice. Amazon donates .5% of your purchases (at no additional cost to you!) to the charity you've chosen. Every penny counts!
Daisy (8 year old spayed white Chihuahua) and Chico (10 year old neutered black Chihuahua mix) arrived at the shelter when their owner passed away. They are a bonded pair and will need to be adopted together. They love each other very much! Currently they are in a foster home, and their foster mom says Daisy is a sweet old lady day who is very easy going, crate trained and gets along with other dogs, cats and kids. Chico is Daisy's protector; he's just a good old boy who loves to burrow in his blankets or lay in the sunshine.
Frankie is a neutered male mix of something who arrived when his person went into hospice. He is a ball playing whiz who will tire you out long before he tires out and is always found with a tennis ball in his mouth begging to play. He has wonderful house manners, knows several commands, is fine with most cats, choosy about the dogs he likes and loves to swim too.
