Pittsfield: Berkshire Humane Society's Woofstock slated Sunday


Woofstock, a fundraiser for the Berkshire Humane Society, will return to the First Street Common on Sunday, Sept. 11. In addition to a 1¼ mile stroll around downtown Pittsfield, the day's family-friendly events include demonstrations, raffles, local vendors, games for dogs and kids, and food.

Woofstock kicks off with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m. Registration begins at 10 a.m. followed by the walk at 11 a.m.

BHS hopes to raise $30,000 in pledges and donations. Those raising $500 or more in pledges will be invited to a luncheon hosted by Steve Caporizzo, WTEN's chief meteorologist and founder of Pet Connection.
