FREE Cat Adoption Day at the Humane Society of Berks County

Reading, PA – We are thrilled to announce that in support of our mission to empower people in our communities to increase their capacity to care for animals so that all animals are healthy, safe, and treated humanely – we will be offering a FREE Cat Adoption Day at The Humane Society of Berks County this Saturday, June 9, 2018.

For years, animal shelters have built cat adoption and holding rooms that were neither happy nor healthy for cats or a pleasant experience for adopters. Cold stainless steel, clinical plastic, poor ventilation and lighting, and drab beige walls have been the standard for cat rooms because animal shelters thought they were the only affordable and sanitary way to create them. The result: stressed out cats, uncomfortable adopters, and the continuation of the image of animal shelters being sad, unpleasant places.

The Humane Society of Berks County is committed to change that image and to show that it is possible to make an animal shelter safe and healthy for animals, as well as warm and inviting for adopters – all for the same cost as those dreary old facilities. Our Cat Adoption Center provides roomy, well-lit individual and group habitats for cats, private “get-to-know-you” adoption rooms, and a comfortable and inviting “human side.”

It is kitten season and we have a lot of great kittens and cats in our Cat Adoption Center that are eager to find their furever homes. Our FREE Cat Adoption Day allows families the ability to welcome a new furry friend into their home without the cost of the fee to adopt. During the event, families can view, select, and meet-and-greet with any cats or kittens they’d like.

Waived Cat Adoption Fees Include:

Humane Pennsylvania’s Thirty Day Adoption Health SupplementSpaying or Neutering (prior to adoption)Vaccinations (including current rabies vaccination) and de-worming medicationFlea TreatmentMicrochipping and chip registrationFree 1 lb. Bag of Science Diet Pet Food. Science Diet partners with Humane Pennsylvania to provide great nutrition to all cats in our shelters.

Come visit the Humane Society of Berks County this Saturday and welcome a new furry friend into your family. The Humane Society of Berks County is located at 1801 N. 11th Street in Reading, PA 19604.

To view the cats available for adoption, visit or meet the animals at the shelter, in-person, during scheduled operating hours. For more information about the free adoption day, please call 610-921-2348 or email: [email protected].
