Berkshire Humane Society and Haddad Subaru launched their 9th annual “Choose Your Subaru” car raffle, which was won by Kristin Jacobson of Williamstown. Kristin has her choice of a 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Limited, Forester Premium or Outback Premium with a value up to $33,000.

Tickets were $40 each or three for $100 and were sold at:

The raffle was limited to 2,400 tickets and just shy of 2,100 were sold. If a minimum of 1,000 tickets were not sold, the raffle would have converted to a 50/50 drawing of net proceeds. The winner was drawn on Saturday, October 30 at 1p.m. at the shelter at 214 Barker Road.

 “Haddad Subaru is excited to partner with Berkshire Humane Society for the 9th annual Subaru Raffle. We love to help raise money for such a wonderful organization so they can continue the important work they do for our four-legged community. Haddad Subaru looks forward to growing the long-standing relationship we’ve built with Berkshire Humane Society over the years,” said George Haddad, President of Haddad Auto Group.

 “Once again we’re pleased to unite with Haddad Subaru to offer this raffle. As our biggest fundraiser, it will help save lives of hundreds of animals,” said John Perreault, Executive Director for Berkshire Humane Society. “We’re an independent nonprofit organization that relies on donations to fund our day-to-day operations, so we encourage animal lovers to buy a raffle ticket 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 have reached more than 1,000 people annually, and the signature SafePet Program, which provides free, temporary pet care for people who are in crisis, continues to expand through its collaboration with Berkshire Medical Center, the Elizabeth Freeman Center, The Brien Center and Elder Services of Berkshire County.

“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 or check the shelter’s website for more information:
