Dec 10, 2018

Reading, PA – It is with great excitement and hope, that the Humane Society of Berks County (HSBC) will be offering 12 Days of Adoption – Fee Free Adoption Event at the shelter, Wednesday, December 12, 2018 through Sunday, December 23, 2018.

The holidays are a unique time of the year for shelter animals. While they receive exceptional daily care, there’s no place a like a home for the holidays. 

Beginning Wednesday, December 12th and running for twelve consecutive days, all pet adoption fees will be waived. With an appreciation and care for the importance of providing a shelter pet with a loving home,several local businesses will be sponsoring a day within the twelve days of this adoption event.

Calling all caring local supporters – Want to show your care for the animals of the Humane Society of Berks County? There are still opportunities for local businesses to participate. We are asking local business partners to show their support and become a sponsor of one of the twelve days.

You can become a local supporter of the animals at HSBC by sponsoring one day of adoptions for $500.

Local sponsorship will be recognized by our community as a gift of support for homeless animals who are eagerly awaiting a home for the holidays. These contributions also support Humane Pennsylvania’s mission to build the best community anywhere to be an animal. Business recognition will also appear on all HSBC social media channels, email newsletters and in shelter signage as the sponsor of that day’s 12 Days of Adoption – Fee Free Adoption Event.
