The Humane Society of Berks County is a superb organization that cares lovingly for pets that need new homes. I adopted two very old cats from them who brought joy and wisdom into my life; two cats who would not have been given a chance to live anywhere else. As a volunteer, I see the "inside" workings of staff members who, despite their many responsibilities, keep their focus centered on expert care and kindness toward the pets in their facility. The many programs and practices of the HSBC are innovative, bringing in community which encourages adoptions. If a pet has to spend some time in a "shelter," this is the place to receive the best care possible while waiting for a new home.

I adopted 3 wonderful animals from there and I volunteer every week on Sunday.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide them with more $ so that they can expand to hold more pets.

The Humane Society of Berks County is a wonderful organization that provides a needed service to the community. The staff are professional, friendly and experts in animal welfare.
The HSBC is a true leader in animal welfare offering innovative services, veterinary care and just recently opened a dog park and equine rescue center. The dog and cat adoption rooms are top notch and should be an inspiration to all shelters.
I am proud to be a volunteer and to support their efforts.

I love the Humane Society of Berks County! The staff is professional, knowledgable, and very caring. The facility is clean and well-managed by staff and volunteers. This facility exudes class. The animals are in the hands of people who care and strive to be sure they are safe, healthy and adoptable. When visiting the HSBC, you get the full attention of a staff member, who knows the animals personally and works to pair them with a family who is right for them. Our family includes 5 wonderful cats! I ENJOY donating to an organization with such enthusiasm and drive toward making both animals and people happy. Their fundraising events are fantastic, quality events which bring a great awareness of animal welfare to the community. They set a high standard for animal shelters!

The Humane Society of Berks County is one of the most thoughtful organizations I have ever encountered. From the facilities that include an absolutely gorgeous cat room to their brand new dog park, the HSBC always puts pets and their people first. Few organizations can match the level of high quality communication provided by the HSBC through their e-newsletters and website. I always know what is going on and am always delighted to hear the news of the good work that happens there each and every day.

I adopted my wonderful yellow lav from the HSBC,

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them raise more money so they can continue to expand their facilites and programs.
