“Everyone knows about Berkshire Humane Society, but over the last 10 years we at Haddad Subaru have witnessed first-hand the tremendous work they do and the positive impact they have on our community and for the animals they serve,” said George Haddad, President of Haddad Auto Group. “We are honored to partner with John and his team at Berkshire Humane Society for the 10th annual Subaru Raffle. We know that the funds raised benefit our four-legged community significantly.”

“It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years already that we’ve joined with Haddad Subaru to offer this raffle,” said John Perreault, Executive Director of Berkshire Humane Society. “We are grateful for their partnership. They’ve helped us raise hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years, saving the lives of thousands of animals and helping pet owners throughout the Berkshires. We rely on donations to fund our day-to-day operations, so we encourage animal lovers to buy a raffle ticket to support our work and have the chance to drive away in a brand-new car.”

Berkshire Humane Society has an annual budget of more than $1.5 million, touching the lives of more than 2,000 animals each year through adoption and surrender, medical care, spay/neuters, vaccine clinics, Pet Food Bank and Family Dog School. The Society’s humane 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, call 413-447-7878, extension 131. Follow the event on Facebook @BerkshireHumane or check the shelter’s website, for more information.
