While planning this free adoption weekend, Tia McKeever-Muller from Muller Rare Coins & Fine
Jewelry said the Muller family has been proud supporters of the Berks County Humane Society for
several years.

“Animals are always a priority for us and we love to support this organization, McKeever-Muller said. “The amount of growth, dedication and most importantly, lives saved, is impressive and inspiring. Keep up the great work HSBC.”

This free adoption weekend provides families with the ability to welcome a new furry friend into their home without needing to pay the standard adoption fee.

Healthy Pets, Healthy Lives: Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic

Healthy Pets, Healthy Lives: Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic

Humane Pennsylvania, the region’s largest partnership of animal welfare organizations, recently accepted its largest gift to date – a $3.1 million dollar grant from The Giorgi Family Foundation.

The grant’s purpose is to eliminate preventable companion animal suffering by undercutting its root causes. The grant will provide for the complete reconstruction of Humane Pennsylvania’s animal shelter at Humane Pennsylvania, vastly expand progressive community veterinary services for Reading area families, and bolster Humane Pennsylvania’s ability to prepare for local, regional, and national emergencies and disasters that impact animals.

With a concentration on providing progressive community veterinary services, Humane Pennsylvania has expanded their Healthy Pets, Healthy Lives initiative. Through this expansion, Humane Pennsylvania will begin offering several community-focused veterinary clinics beginning in October.

The first of these clinic will be the Healthy Pets, Healthy Lives: Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic. This clinic will provide complete low cost spay/neuter services to pets presented by residents of the City of Reading and adjacent areas. Each clinic will be held at the Humane Society of Berks County and the cost of services will be determined on an individual basis, to reflect both the type of service, (spay or neuter), and the type of animal, (cat or dog), with services provided for as low as $45.

Reading area pet owners are encouraged to take advantage of this paramount opportunity to receive services from the region’s leading veterinarians and ensure their pet receives the highest level of care at an affordable cost.
