Berkshire Humane Society to Hold Pet Food Drive-Thru on Friday
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Humane Society will offer free food for dogs and cats to anybody who needs help feeding their pets during a drive-through pet food drive on Friday, April 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
No advance appointment is needed. To participate, enter Berkshire Humane Society's parking lot from the north entrance at 214 Barker Road in Pittsfield and drive up to the curb. A Berkshire Humane Society employee in personal protective equipment will take your order and load the food you need. You do not need to leave your car or give your name.
"Because of the generosity of our community and four pallets of food donated by Purina, our pet food is well-stocked and we need to distribute it," said John Perreault, executive director of Berkshire Humane Society. "The COVID-19 pandemic has created financial hardship for many people who have never been in this position before and they may be embarrassed to ask for help. With drive-thru, we can help pet owners feed their pets, no questions asked.
"If you are quarantined in your home and unable to come to the shelter, please call us at 413-447-7878 and we will arrange to get the food to you."
The Pet Food Bank is one of many programs Berkshire Humane Society offers to help keep pets in their homes and out of the shelter. The shelter is closed to the public, but is handling surrenders and adoptions by appointment.
