The Chautauqua County Humane Society held a rabies and distemper clinic last month with help from the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. More than 350 animals from throughout Chautauqua County were immunized at the event.
"We're very thankful that the Community Foundation helped us with this endeavor," said Jeff Lubi, executive director for the CCHS. "Immunizations are the first line of defense against unwanted disease with our pets," said Lubi.
Grant funding from the Community Foundation went towards purchasing distemper shots for animals while the rabies vaccine was provided by the Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services.
