Berkshire Humane Society (BHS) believes that helping people and helping animals go hand in hand. When a community is in need, we’re there to help – from vaccine clinics to providing free spay/neuter vouchers. Over the past few months, BHS has partnered with local veterinarians to host clinics in North Adams and other neighborhoods in the Berkshires to help curb parvo outbreaks and get pets up-to-date with rabies shots and wellness exams. Volunteer veterinarians and shelter staff work these clinics, offering medical, health and behavioral advice to people. Animal DREAMS has also attended, providing resources to people who care for community cat populations or who have feral cats in their neighborhood. These clinics allow the shelter to make an important and direct impact on the community while also ending disease outbreaks and preventing new ones.
