General Info:
Humane Society of Berks County was established in 1889 and is based in Reading, Pa., offering shelter to dogs and puppies, cats and kittens, rabbits, hamsters, gerbils and ferrets. Its facility has kennel space for dogs, cat adoption room, lobby area and offices. The shelter conducts a humane education program in schools and for civic groups, offers puppy kindergarten classes and operates a low-cost neuter clinic.

Success! Thanks for posting your review of Humane Society Of Berks County. You’ve done the world some good today.


when i brought my newly housed stray cat for check ups and things they gave him unnecessary shots without consent and expected me to pay for it. also, they told me fiv is transferred through water bowls, so they clearly have very little knowledge on animals as veterinarians.

Everytime I inquire about adopting a dog from here they give me a hard time. The closest I came to even meeting a dog was a Golden Retriever that according to his bio was "perfect for a family." I stated that my husband and I had no children but were trying to start a family. I was told that this dog could not be around small children and that I shouldn't be getting a dog when I could have small children around the h... view more

This place is shady.

Without going into much detail... my girlfriend's family gave the family dog up for adoption assuming my girlfriend wouldn't want him.. Her and I left work and drove an hour and 15 minutes to adopt the dog ourselves. I called them ahead of time and was told they can't hold the dog. I get there and the dog is still there. We filled out adoption papers but there was a family ahead of us that got to choose first. This ... view more

Why surrender to the humane society?

I just don't understand why anyone would surrender to a place that is not a no kill shelter. We only deal with the SPCA, being that they are no kill. However, I am going to see if they can neuter or not for us, being that the SPCA didn't being that he was just a baby when we got him. ...

I totally disagree with these negative reviews. Last year we rescued 2 lovely pugs from Berks County Humane Society. The workers could not have been more helpful or gracious. In fact they gave us discounts on follow-up visits in addition to food and toys for our new found family members. The facility was clean and it was a friendly environment for both people and animals. We will definitely go there when it is time t... view more

We had to make the extremely tough decision to surrender two cats. When we walked in the door your could instantly feel that you are being judged and hated. When we told the women that we needed to surrender the cats everyone in the office looked at us and gave us nasty looks. They treated you like you were the worst person on the planet and they we harmed the animals. We got a lady named Susan that we later called t... view more

please dont take your cat here

My girlfriend and I adopted a beautiful male Orange and white cat, very friendly and loved to cuddle. We had him just about 3 weeks and got very attached, we took him in for a routine check up and mentioned that he breathed kinda fast, the vet thought nothing of it and proceeded with giving him a distemper shot. 3 days later he started acting very strange, he wasn't eating, drinking or playing. Just latex with his he... view more
