About Woofstock

Woofstock is one of the major fundraisers that helps Berkshire Humane Society meet the growing needs of our community, for both animals and people. BHS depends solely on the generosity of individuals, and our work is entirely funded by residents and local sponsors. Events such as Woofstock are our lifeblood.

After registration, runners (and their dogs) take off for the 5K that is timed by Berkshire Running Center. Then walking participants and their dogs gather to take a short, scenic walk around downtown Pittsfield led by the Grand Marshall.

The Grand Marshal is an adoption alumni chosen by the shelter each year; this dog leads the pack, along with their owner or family.

All money raised supports the animals and their care. Thank you for joining us at Woofstock and supporting the work and mission of Berkshire Humane Society!
