It was Love at First Wiggle

“We looked at getting a puppy, but we have the means and wanted to give a shelter dog a good country home.” – Bill, Mercedes’s new human

It was Love at First Wiggle

We are beyond excited to share that Mercedes, a playful pit with unique allergies, has been adopted! Mercedes came to the Humane Society of Berks County in November 2017. She was suffering from an unidentified skin irritant that left her with scores, scabs, and extremely itchy fur.
Our veterinary and shelter teams worked tirelessly to evaluate, test and properly diagnose Mercedes allergies. Through their expertise, diligence and care, Mercedes was properly diagnosed and began treating her for her allergies.
It is through the state-of-the-art veterinarian care at the Humane Veterinary Hospital in Berks, that we were able to provide this extraordinary pup with the opportunity to live a healthy, happy life.
We could all use more people like Bill in this world. Be like Bill, adopt a shelter pet.

After being named the MAC Commonwealth Defensive Player of the Week on Monday for the fourth time this season, Leah Franklin of Reading, Pa., added an ECAC Division III South Defensive Player of the Week honor, the first of her young career.

Last week, Franklin guided the Dutchmen to a pair of wins that helped LVC lock up a playoff spot. In a 10-6 win over Stevenson, the Dutchmen’s first-ever win in Owings Mills, the sophomore allowed just six goals and made 14 saves on 29 shots. She responded with a 15-save game in LVC’s 13-10 win over Widener. Franklin finished the week with an 8.00 goals-against average and a .644 save percentage. She also had four ground balls and caused a turnover. Before last night’s game, Franklin ranked fourth in NCAA Division III with a .592 save percentage, which is good for first in the MAC Commonwealth.
