I have nothing but the highest praise for EVERYONE at the Humane Society of Berks County. Their love and respect for animals in need shows in everything they do. Before our 8 year old Yorkie, Chessie became ours, she was left at the HSBC ungroomed; she had not been spayed; and she had mammary tumors that needed to be removed. The HSBC took excellent care of her and now we have a happy, healthy and most loving little dog. Please consider adopting a shelter dog, you will not be disappointed!

Several years ago I adopted my dog from the Humane Society of Berks County. At the time she had been there for several months without being adopted because if some health issues that she had that were related with her being a stray. The Humane Society gave her great care and time to heal, which allowed her to eventually become a happy part of our family. Other organizations might have decided to forgo the cost of care and the time it took to find a loving home, but not the HSBC. Their commitment to animals of all kinds in all conditions is really amazing and commendable.

The HSBC is a wonderful organization dedicated to animal welfare. They are also equally committed to educating the public and uniting fellow animal lovers. From the numerous outreach events to the kennel improvements, HSBC is light years ahead of other similar organizations. I have personally adopted two dogs from their Reading facility (in 2007 and 2009) and have received amazing vet services since that time. I couldn't be happier to know that this type of operation is available in our community. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to my "children" (Haley and Belle).

I went to the Humane Society of Berks County in search for a new friend and was pleasantly surprised at what I found. The facility is clean and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. This is an organization that is run with true care. I came home with the best, healthiest little kitty and she refuses to go anywhere else for her regular checkups.
