“The Berkshire Humane Society is in need of our local support as a community more than ever. The work they are doing now and in the future really demands our full support. The 6th annual raffle is just one way Haddad likes to contribute to our local community. The culture Subaru envelopes around “Share the Love” and pets is an amazing one. All of our staff believes, supports, and even participates in the BHS’s yearlong goal. We are here to help pay the bills and spread the word on what the BHS strives to accomplish every day. I couldn’t ask for a better partner in John, we go way back and continue to grow our relationship with the BHS and Haddad Subaru. I really have a soft spot for these animals, so whatever we have to do in order to provide them safe shelter, we will,” said Chris Kramek, General Manager of Haddad Subaru.

“We love hosting this raffle with the help of our friends at Haddad Subaru. They have been enormously supportive of our work over the years – they are also extremely supportive of our entire community. Haddad Subaru sponsors a “Dog of the Week” every week, which gives that dog some additional exposure to them find a home. This raffle is a great opportunity for someone to win a car that’s perfect for the Berkshires, and to support homeless animals,” said John Perreault, Executive Director for BHS.

Proceeds benefit BHS. For more information, call (413) 447-7878, ext. 131.

Berkshire Humane Society (BHS) is a private, nonprofit, open-admission animal support organization with a twofold mission: to ensure the compassionate care, treatment, and whenever possible, placement of homeless animals through the shelter operation; and to promote and improve the welfare of all animals through community education and outreach. As a private non-profit, BHS is not affiliated with the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA) or any other animal welfare group, and receives no public funds from local, state, or federal sources. The welfare of companion animals and the future of BHS depend entirely on the compassion and generosity of the community.

Since its beginning, BHS has sheltered more than 50,000 homeless animals who are cared for and made available for adoption. In 2017, BHS took in about 1,264 homeless animals, which represents a continuing decrease in numbers from past years. BHS believes that its expanding low-cost spay/neuter programs, community pet food pantry, and other lifesaving programs, have gone a long way to help keep pets in their homes and reduce pet overpopulation. BHS is also proud to place 100% of all adoptable dogs, cats, birds, and small mammals into new, responsible homes.

Although BHS is primarily known as a place to surrender pets and adopt a new family member, these are only a few of the services provided to the community. BHS has developed into a valuable resource that provides a variety of programs for people as well as animals. Learn more at
