Free to a Great Home: Fee-Free Cat Adoption Event at The Humane Society of Berks County

Reading – In response to an elevated number of incoming cats, The Humane Society of Berks County will be offering Free to a Great Home – Fee Free Cat Adoption Event at the shelter, Friday, Sept. 21, through Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018.

As a nationally-recognized initiative, the Free to a Great Home program was created in 2005 to provide free cat adoptions to qualified adopters throughout the community.

Adopters wishing to save a cat’s life through the Free to Great Home emergency cat adoption program must go through the same diligent adoption screening process as any other adopter. Once approved, the cat adoption fee is waived.

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

“Our hope is that an adopter who was thinking about adopting a cat will do so now when the need is greatest,” states Karel Minor, President/CEO of Humane Pennsylvania.

This free adoption event provides families with the ability to welcome a new furry friend into their home without needing to pay the standard adoption fee. Throughout the weekend, families can view, select, and meet-and-greet with any cats they’d like, that are available for adoption.

Adoption Hours:
Monday and Friday 10am – 6:30pm
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday 10am – 4:30pm

We encourage you to cover this free adoption event at The Humane Society of Berks County, Friday September 21 – Sunday September 30, 2018. The Humane Society of Berks County is located at 1801 N. 11th Street in Reading, PA 19604.

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