Vaccinations will be provided free of charge to all dogs, cats and domesticated ferrets three months of age and older. All pets must be on a leash or in a cage and pet owners should bring rabies vaccination records for each animal that will be receiving a shot to ensure proper and effective vaccination.

New York State Public Health Law requires each dog, cat and domesticated ferret over the age of four months be vaccinated against rabies and county residents are encouraged to be responsible pet owners by having their pets vaccinated.

Rabies is a very serious disease of warm-blooded animals caused by a virus. Raccoons, bats, skunks and foxes are the common disease carriers. The virus is transmitted to humans and animals through saliva and it can enter the body from a bite, scratch, scrape or open cut. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system and can cause brain swelling and ultimately death within days of the onset of symptoms.

May Shelter News

Hello!

It looks like spring finally made it, and boy are the dogs and volunteers happy about that!  It’s a lot more fun for the dogs to play in the yards with nice sunny weather, and the volunteers certainly enjoying walking the dogs more when it’s not raining out!

We’ve had a great beginning to 2018; as of this weekend there have been about 100 dogs and pups how have made their way to their new homes. We thank you if you were one of those families who adopted.   If you spread the word, put up a poster, shared a Facebook post or in any way donated, volunteered or helped out then we certainly appreciate it!

Have you stopped by the shelter to see the current “residents”? We are located at 7540 N. Gale St. in Westfield, NY and are open Monday-Saturday from 1-3pm or by appointment by calling 716-326-7297.  Our website is www.caninerescue.org or follow us on Facebook too at https://www.facebook.com/Northern-Chautauqua-Canine-Rescue-Inc-63822851822/

We usually have about 20 dogs/puppies at any time depending on the litters that are on han  We are often bursting at the seams with several litters that bump our numbers even higher.  Dogs and pups arrive as local turnovers or strays, and we also try and help other shelters when they run out of room by taking some of their dogs.  We just took in a stray pregnant dog from a central NY shelter as her time there was running up .   She will have her pups here, and then we will carefully screen applications for them when the pups are old enough. We also have been getting more puppy mill breeder dogs.  It’s terribly sad to see some of these dogs.  They are often afraid of so many things.  samara1 Samara, a female husky, recently arrived from such a situation.  It took us several days to realize that we had to dump food on the floor for this girl to eat.  She wasn’t used to food dishes it seemed.  We work with these dogs and try to help them understand that there are good, kind, loving people in the world.   It takes time, but eventually she will be ready to be placed in a home.

The shelter has a number of events and fundraisers coming up; we also help sponsor the local free rabies clinic that is held at the Westfield Town Barns. More information about the rabies clinic can be found here: http://www.caninerescue.org/upcoming-rabies-clinic-in-westfield/
