“We can’t think of a better way to raise money for our furry little four-legged friends” said George Haddad, President of Haddad Auto Group “For 12 years we have made it our mission to do what we can to help John and his team find every shelter pet their well-deserved forever home and we will continue to do so.”
“We’re grateful to have had a partner like Haddad Subaru,” said John Perreault, Executive Director of Berkshire Humane Society. “Not only do they help us raise tens of thousands of dollars each year for the car raffle, they underwrite an animal adoption each week for up to $2,600 annually and often choose us as one of their hometown charities in the Subaru Share the Love event. Thanks to them, we’ve place thousands of homeless animals and have helped thousands more stay in their homes with our community programs.”
Berkshire Humane Society has an annual budget of about $2.3 million, touching the lives of more than 2,000 animals each year through adoption and surrender, medical care, spay/neuters, vaccine clinics, a Wellness Center, Pet Food Bank and Family Dog School. The Society’s education programs reach hundreds of school children annually and a SafePet Program provides free, temporary pet care for people in crisis.
“The animals of our community depend on you,” said Perreault. All proceeds benefit homeless animals of the Berkshires. For more information on the raffle, call 413-447-7878, extension 131.
