MUHLENBERG TWP., Pa. - Hundreds of dogs in Berks County have an extra reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving Eve.

The Humane Society of Berks County and Redner's Warehouse Markets teamed up Wednesday to hand out free dog beds.

Many dog owners lined up for the "Pupsgiving" event outside the Redner's store on the North Fifth Street Highway in Muhlenberg Township.

"These beds are very popular," said Damon March, the Humane Society's chief operating officer. "We've done some small distributions, so when we saw how excited people were, we thought we need to find a way to give away even more."

The Humane Society also collected donations for Spike's Pet Pantry, which provides free pet food to families in need.
