Pittsfield: '100 Cats' program registration open
For the seventh year, Berkshire Humane Society has received a grant from Massachusetts Animal Coalition's license plate program to support the 100 Cats for Christmas initiative, BHS's largest low cost spay/neuter effort, during the month of December.
Registration is on a first come, first served basis. To participate, Berkshire County residents must call BHS at 413-447-7878, ext. 124, or visit the main shelter at 214 Barker Road for qualification requirements and registration locations.
Participants must complete a registration form and pay a non-refundable $25 fee in person to cover the surgery and a rabies vaccination.
Appointments will be scheduled during the month of December. All cats and kittens will be dropped off at predesignated locations.
To help support low-cost spaying and neutering throughout Massachusetts, BHS encourages all community members to buy an "I'm Animal Friendly" tax-deductible license plate at local Registries of Motor Vehicles or at petplate.org.
