JAMESTOWN, NY – Thursday, July 6, 2011 – The Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) is thrilled to announce the first adoption from the Prospect Street Cruelty Case is complete. A four-month-old puppy, bearing the new name of “Lexie”,happily departed from the CCHS Adoption Center on Friday, July 1 to celebrate her own special kind of Independence Day. After spending the first few months of her life confined completely to an upstairs apartment, she will now go to live at her “forever home.”
Jill Patterson and her nephew Seth are treasured aslong-standing and faithful volunteers at the Strunk Road Adoption Center every Saturday. When the Pattersons learned of the increased need for trained volunteers at the Stray Holding Center due to the sudden influx from the Cruelty Case, they immediately approached CCHS shelter manager, Sue Bloom, to offer their time and talents directly to the Prospect Street dogs. After spending time working with some of the puppies, “Lexie” emerged as the perfect dog for them.
“I just fell for her” states Ms. Patterson. “Not a mean bone in her body…she struck me as the kind of dog that, after everything she has been through, is still ladylike…she just has a sweet, loving manner.” “When I watched her play with the other puppies she was the one that always provided a calming influence for the rest…the peacekeeper.”
Currently there are eight puppies and two adult dogs from the Prospect Street Cruelty Case available for adoption matchmaking.
