PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Humane Society and Haddad Subaru are teaming up for "100 Cats for Christmas," a low-cost spaying and neutering event for cats on Wednesday, Dec. 18.
The program, funded by the $2,500 "Share the Love" grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Subaru of America, aims to spay or neuter 100 cats.
Berkshire County residents can register up until Saturday, Dec. 14, at the shelter located at 214 Barker Road, for $25 on a first-come, first-serve basis. The fee also includes a rabies vaccination.
On the morning of Dec. 18, owners can drop off their cats at Berkshire Humane Society between 7 and 8 a.m. The cats must arrive at BHS in carriers with identification, including the owner's name and contact information, as well as the cat's name and description.
The sales staff from Haddad Subaru will drive the cats to their appointments at local veterinarians, who have reduced their fees for the event. After, the cats will be returned to the shelter for pick up.
