Funds from both the sales of the buckets and the roundup were collected and went directly to the Berkshire Humane Society on Monday afternoon.
"The folks over at the Berkshire Humane Society are so important to our community and our customers made it easy to raise the funds during these challenging times," Carr Hardware President Bart Raser said. "We thank our customers. We are a community business that believes in giving back, it has been part of our core culture for the past 93 years and always will be."
Carr Hardware has a history of working with the Berkshire Humane Society, which operates an animal shelter and programs  
"Carr Hardware is a great community partner of Berkshire Humane Society, for many years now Carr's has been a supporter of our many fundraisers," the shelter's Executive Director John Perreault said. "During the last few years of holding the 'roundup' and being the beneficiaries of the bucket sales, it has really helped to provide the support we need to be able to provide so many animals loving new homes. We can't thank Carr Hardware enough for all that they do for everyone in this community ... especially our homeless animal friends."
