“Once again we’re pleased to join with Haddad Subaru to offer this raffle. As our biggest fundraiser, it will help save lives of hundreds of animals,” said John Perreault, Executive Director for Berkshire Humane Society. “We’re an independent nonprofit organization that relies on donations to fund our day-to-day operations, so we encourage animal lovers to buy a raffle ticket and have the chance to drive away in a brand-new car.”

Berkshire Humane Society has an annual budget of more than $1.5 million, touching the lives of more than 2,000 animals each year through adoption and surrender, medical care, spay/neuters, vaccine clinics, Pet Food Bank and Family Dog School. The Society’s humane education programs reach more than 1,000 people annually, and the signature SafePet Program, which provides free, temporary pet care for people in crisis, continues to expand through its collaboration with Berkshire Medical Center, the Elizabeth Freeman Center, The Brien Center and Elder Services of Berkshire County.

The Animals are in Need 

“The animals of our community depend on you,” said Perreault. All proceeds benefit homeless animals of the Berkshires. For more information, call 413-447-7878, extension 131. Follow the event on Facebook or check the shelter’s website for more information by going here.
