Sampson: A Lasting Legacy

Sampson: A Lasting Legacy

3 5 8 Productions has produced a short film with the help of filmmaker Ashley Baron on NCCR, focusing on the help we provide for dogs in need, some of the challenges we face and how the Sampson Fund enables us to care for the ill and injured dogs that arrive at NCCR each year. We hope you will take a few moments to watch the film here:

In addition to the film, Logan Alexander of 3 5 8 Productions, recently delivered their very generous donation of over $1500 from their sale of limited edition hoodies. Thank you to all who took part in making the film and to those who sold and purchased the hoodies. We could not help as many dogs as we do year after year without the support of so many community members!

February Shelter News

Happy February from all the shelter dogs!

Are you realizing that a 4 legged Valentine might be what your home needs this year? There is always a shelter dog who would love to be your furry Valentine!

Stop by Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue this week and show the dogs how much you care. Sure, they might bark for a bit at first, but that’s because they are so happy to see new people…people mean walks and treats and hopefully adoptions! Tell your friends, family and coworkers about all the dogs just waiting to be their Valentine. Put the poster up at your place of work if you’re allowed or around your town; free advertising and word of mouth helps tremendously to get the dogs adopted.

The shelter is located at 7540 N. Gale St. in Westfield, NY and is open Monday-Saturday from 1-3pm or by appointment by calling 716-326-7297. Many of the dogs can be seen online at

Saturday, February 16th is Open House from 1-3pm. Meet some of the volunteers who can tell you how you can help out at the shelter. It is great exercise, helps the dogs to socialize more and will make you feel better too.

Here are some of the current dogs that are available. Things can change quickly, so if you see one you are interested in, don’t hesitate to call or fill out an application online. There are always more dogs available than are shown; the Lab mix puppies are adorable and are sure to be quite popular!
