TWO FUR ONE MATCH
Give to Berkshire Humane Society by July 15th, and your donation will be matched $2 for every $1. What you are supporting…
Animals enter our care in all conditions imaginable. Starvation, neglect, abandonment…we’ve seen it all. Your support helps us provide shelter for animals in dire need of help. These animals often have nowhere else to go.
ANIMAL CARE & MEDICAL TREATMENTS
The vast majority of our expenses are tied to the animals’ care. Each pet receives a physical exam, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, and a microchip. Any additional medical treatment, such as dental surgery or severe allergy care, necessary to help that animal get adopted is also taken care of at no cost to the adopter. We lose money on every single adoption.
SOCIALIZATION & BEHAVIORAL TRAINING
All our animals are cared for by loving, dedicated, and extremely knowledgeable staff members and volunteers who provide daily exercise, enrichment, and affection 365 days a year. Dogs are taught basic commands, work on leash manners, and practice house training. Cats are provided with toys, catnip, and their choice of material for scratching and bedding. Small animals, such as birds, guinea pigs, and rabbits, are given toys and special treats, like fresh fruits and veggies. Our shelter is not a home…but it’s a very nice place to be while they wait for their people.
Berkshire Humane Society believes in compassion, and compassion begins with humans who prioritize loving treatment and care of animals. We understand that children are the future. Our numerous education programs, such as Camp Humane, Humane Heroes, and Defenders, invest in our future by teaching and fostering loving, caring, knowledgeable attitudes about companion animals and local ecology. You can be part of our future by participating now.
