Review for Humane Society of Berks County Inc, Reading, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Even before I became a board member, I was impressed by the Humane Society of Berks County. The staff is well-trained and professional and they always go above and beyond to help people and their animals. I have been taking my elderly arthritic dog for acupuncture for three years and the change in his quality of life is dramatic. He enjoys walking again and even runs and plays with his 3 year old sister. The holistic vet care available at the Humane Society has made a huge impact on my life and the life of my pets. Then, there are the events...the Art Auction, Pints for Pups, Walktoberfest, Furry Fridays. These events are amazing...not only do they raise funds for the benefit of people and their animals, but they are the best run events in Berks County. HSBC events are always incredibly fun and unique. Our upcoming art auction has a "pup art" theme. The staff and volunteers at the Humane Society never cease to amaze me with the high caliber events that they hold. And last, but not least, is the new dog park. My dogs have so much fun every time they go there. It is so important for us to socialize our dogs and the Ruiz-Murphy Dog Park and Equine Center is the perfect place to exercise your dog.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

its impact on the health and well-being of the animals of Berks County, including my own.

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

Expand their services and help them renovate their aging shelter to provide even more services.

Role:  Board Member & I am the board president.
