Help Us “Clear the Shelter” on August 18!
On Saturday, August 18, animal shelters around the country are participating in “Clear the Shelters,” a nationwide pet adoption drive hosted by NBC and Telemundo owned stations. The goal is find loving homes for homeless animals. More than 150,000 pets have found their forever families since the event began in 2015.
Berkshire Humane Society is excited to participate in this year’s event. All adoption fees will be discounted on August 18 — $1 off for every day the animal has been at our shelter. Stop by on Saturday, August 18 to find your new furry best friend!
