Team Cat Champions

Congratulations to Team Cats!

Team Cats is the winner of our November 28th Giving Tuesday Giving Grid Game. Here’s a message from the team:

We cannot thank you enough for giving to our BHS Giving Tuesday Giving Grid in honor of Team Cats. If you haven’t checked…Team Cats WON! You helped us raise $2,765. All together, we raised $4,340 – just $660 short of our $5,000 goal. That’s spectacular! And really, we’re all winners because we have people like you on our side. Thank you.

We also want to announce the winning names that the humans drew at random today. The following ladies are invited to join Team Cats at their party!

The Team Cat Treat Party will be on Thursday, December 7th at 5:30pm at 214 Barker Rd. in Pittsfield. Chez Pet, a wonderful local pet supply store, has graciously agreed to host. They’ve sent us treats! Tune into our Facebook page for live coverage of our celebration. (We just MIGHT invite the dogs…)

Thanks again for caring! Go Team Cats!

For Giving Tuesday, Berkshire Humane Society is doing something a little different. We’re kicking off a friendly competition between Team Cats and Team Dogs. So pick your team and score a touchdown for your pet of choice by making a donation to that giving grid. The winning team gets a party! Best of all, your donations directly support the shelter animals. It’s a win-win for everyone. GAME ON!

The Giving Tuesday Giving Grid Game kicks off on Thanksgiving Day, November 23rd. Play through midnight, Giving Tuesday, November 28th.


  • Team Cats
  • Giving Grid Team Dogs

Here’s how to play…

  1. Pick your team – Team Cats or Team Dogs. If you want to root for both teams, give to both grids!
  2. Make a donation to your team.
  3. Upload a pic of your pet, which will show up in a donation square.
  4. Share with your friends and family and challenge them to give!
  5. Follow along and stay tuned for the winner. A few lucky supporters will be chosen at random and invite to the party.

When to play…

The game kicks off on Thanksgiving Day. You can play through midnight, Giving Tuesday, November 28th.

The Winning Party Deets…

If the winner is Team Dogs, all of our shelter pups will enjoy a Hot Tomatoes Puppy Pie Party. If the winner is Team Cats, all our shelter kitties will celebrate with special treats donated by Chez Pet. (Really everyone is a winner, because all donations directly support the care and shelter of our animals.)

If you’d like to help host the party, give $10 or more. Three lucky supporters will be chosen at random and invited to the party.
