Berkshire Humane Society (BHS) is excited to introduce our “Coffee Hour Speaking Series.” Throughout the year, we’ll feature experts, researchers, and authors discussing a wide range of timely and important animal topics.
Launching the “Coffee Hour Speaking Series” on Sunday, January 12, is author and history professor Diane Beers. Dr. Beers will trace the history of the animal welfare movement in the United States from its earliest beginnings until the 1970’s.
After each presentation, ample time will be provided for discussion and questions. Refreshments will be served. All events will be held at the shelter, 2:00pm – 4:00pm, and are free and open to the public.
Reservations aren’t necessary, but if you’d like to save a spot and be eligible for a raffle at the end of the presentation, please call 413-447-7878, ext. 28 or register online to reserve a seat(s).
Upcoming speakers include Caitlin Quinn from the Animal Farm Foundation, who will discuss myths and misunderstandings about pit bull dogs on Sunday, February 16, and Mary A. Koncel from the Tufts/Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, who will examine the management of Bureau of Land Management wild horses on Sunday, March 16, 2014.
