Game Of Homes: Fee Waived Adoption Event

by Humane Pennsylvania

Jun 20, 2019

Reading, PA – Adopters are coming. If you’ve been looking for a valiant protector, you’re in luck! Beginning this Friday, June 21, 2019 and continuing through Sunday, June 23, 2019 – the Humane Society of Berks County (HSBC) will be offering free pet adoptions all weekend.

The shelter pets of HSBC, first pets of their name, protectors of the realms of sofas and house you, kings and queens of Reading, invite adopters to this special weekend when all pet adoption fees will be waived.

Adopters wishing to provide a loving home for a shelter Dogthraki, Catlyn Stark, or Hamdor – are encouraged to visit the shelter or HumanePA.org to learn more about the animals currently available for adoption. Every type, size, age and personality of pet are all waiting for a caring home.

For efficiency, interested potential adopters are also encouraged to come into the shelter prior to the start of the adoption event to complete an adoption assistance application and begin the process for adoption approval. Adoption approval is required before any potential adopter can meet with a pet.

All potential adopters during this adoption event are required to go through the same diligent adoption screening process as any other adopter. However, once approved, the pet adoption fee will be waived.  This adoption event provides community members with the ability to welcome a new friend into their home without needing to pay the standard adoption fee.

Waived Adoption Fees Include:

  • Humane Pennsylvania’s Thirty Day Adoption Health Supplement
  • Spaying or Neutering (prior to adoption)
  • Vaccinations (including current rabies vaccination) and de-worming medication
  • Flea Treatment
  • Microchipping and chip registration
  • Free 1 lb. bag of Science Diet Pet Food. Science Diet partners with Humane Pennsylvania to provide great nutrition to all cats in our shelters


Adoption Hours:
