READING, Pa. - Just in time for Valentine's Day, the Humane Society of Berks County (HSBC) is playing Cupid to its shelter animals with Free Adoption Weekend this weekend.
The HSBC will waive all pet adoption fees from February 10 through February 12.
All pet adoptions include the shelter's 30-day adoption health guarantee, spaying or neutering (prior to adoption), vaccinations, microchip and more. Normal adoption policies apply.
The HSBC has dozens of animals for adoption, including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, turtles and "love birds."
The event is sponsored by the Reading and Northern Railroad (RNR).
"The Reading and Northern Railroad is a family-oriented and animal friendly company," said Crystal Arndt, human resources at RNR. "We are happy to sponsor the Humane Society this weekend."
To view many of the animals available for adoption at the HSBC, visit the shelter's website or stop by the shelter in person at 1801 North 11th Street in Reading.
Regular adoption hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, and 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Monday and Friday.
